2021.07 was just released!!

Updates & Bugs Fixed:
  • Updated all the CAD tool interface UI menus.
  • Updated the V2021 FPX File Converter.
  • Console Options:
    • Mil Units – working strictly in Mil units slightly altered the pin pitch in Gull Wing, J-Lead and Bottom Terminal footprints. Translating metric to mil units worked OK.
  • Print Feature:
    • Updated the Footprint Dimension letters in the table to match the letters in the image.
  • FP Designer:
    • Through-hole pad stacks with a solder mask swell was not working correctly.
    • The Placement Courtyard was not going around Non-plated Holes correctly.
  • Calculator Component Families:
    • Options – setting the “Pads & Tabs on Assembly” would not turn off when selecting “Clear and Reset Options”.
    • SOT23 – fixed a typo. The 0.95 pitch was displaying the wrong pitch range in the Terminal Density Level UI.
    • SON with Thermal Tab – translating these parts to V2021 had the X1/Y1 dimensions swapped.
    • SIP – added the ability to enter a negative value.
    • PLCC – corrected the Pin 1 location for 20-pin versions. Pin 1 was offset and relocated to the Center.
    • SOJ – fixed an issue for the minimum pad to pad clearance.
    • TO-220 Flange Mount – Updated the component family from TO-220 to TO because it can be used for all Flange Mounted packages.
    • TO – Updated the footprint naming convention to add both the pin pitch and pin span.
    • Header, Right Angle Post – fixed an issue when the E dimension was missing and the Calculate button threw an Exception Error.
    • Radial, LED – updated the 3D Model pin colours. During testing the pins were set to green and yellow and not converted back.
    • DPAK – the feature for “Pads on Assembly” was disabled.
  • FPX File Converter:
    • Fixed an Unhandled Exception error when the Cancel button was selected.
