Tutorials are small, rewarding projects that will help you build confidence and start developing a mental model for how JITX works. These are intended to be self-contained, introductory projects for learning.

JITX Workflow

The following is the end-to-end workflow of going from an idea to a design using JITX.

  1. Define requirements (Conventional EE process).
  2. System level design / block diagram (Conventional EE process).
  3. Create a new JITX project.
  4. Pull in major components to your JITX project.
    1. Import your components from an existing design or component file (KiCad or Altium).
    2. Search OCDB to see if the part exists.
  5. Connectivity + Passives
    • use net statements to connect your components together
    • use res-strap, cap-strap, etc. to create passives, pullups, etc.
  6. Checks
    • write checks for your components and design, then run them to verify validity of your design
  7. Export to CAD (Altium or KiCad)
  8. Layout, Order Board (Conventional EE process)
