  • Calculator:
    • Chip – added a new component family for Antenna – ANTC
    • When selecting the Red indicator light in the viewer a new message appears and the OK button updates the Data
  • 3D STEP:
    • Low Quality version is now available

  • Calculator:
    • TO-92 – Added the missing A1 dimension to the thumbnail picture
    • Side Concave Package (2, 4 pins) – Synced pin names C & A with Preferences 1 & 2
    • DPAK – Fixed an issue when adding polarity marking and mirror footprint
  • FP Designer:
    • Fixed an issue when adding multiple corner radius pad stacks
    • 3D STEP has been adjusted so that the 3D model will offset to a checkdown-list of Extents depending on whether you included them or not. The first that it finds, it will use. In order, It will center to the Component Outline Extents, then the Assembly Extents, then the Courtyard Extents, then the Extents of anything available. This should solve any offsetting problems.
  • 3D STEP:
    • Updated PTH Radial Disk
      • Connected Model for Resistor, Varistor, and Thermistor families
      • Connected Model for Thermistor family
    • SOT23, SOT143, SOT223
      • Fixed a problem with the backside negative Z-axis gull-wing lead
    • SOT223
      • Put in a new body. The old one had an issue with PADS 3D.
    • Fixed an issue when dealing with multiple alphanumeric pin numbers (i.e. 2A, 2B, etc.)
  • Allegro/OrCAD PCB:
    • When the Anti-pad Size is smaller than the Pad Size, the translator will force it to be larger by 0.005 mm. This is done to bypass the needless warnings from Allegro. It shouldn’t have any effect on the manufacturing.
    • Fixed an issue that was generating duplicate pad-stacks for symmetrical pads at different orientations as found on a Chip Resistor, etc.
    • Added an extra line when setting the unit’s precision
