NEW / ENHANCED:
  • Documentation:
  • Calculator:
    • Added keep-outs for contour courtyards
    • When you Mirror a BGA to see the Bottom Side, the indicator light will turn Yellow and throw a warning
    • Molded Body Mfr. Recommended Footprint “L1” dimension would not allow user to edit the value
    • Through-hole Oscillator Physical Description was OSC and fixed to Oscillator
    • Fixed the Triangle Polarity Marker to Fill correctly
    • Headers – added a new origin location, Center of Pins
    • Added Axial Lead Non-polarized (bidirectional) Diodes
    • Dip Socket – fixed the auto-generated polarity line marker
  • Preferences:
    • Drafting > Courtyard > Origin preferences were split into crosshair and target
  • 3D STEP:
    • Added support for Center of Pins that is used by the Right Angle Post Header
    • Added support for the non-polarized Axial Diode
  • Altium:
    • Added a Secondary Reference Designator has been added that can be used for Assembly. You can change the height of this designator by setting the Assembly Ref Des Height preference and you can turn it off by changing the Assembly Ref Des Height to 0.00.
    • Added an option ‘Use Mask Expansion Rules’. Disabling this option will prevent the default expansion rules from being used for Solder Mask and Paste Mask should the expansion be 0. This will provide a WYSIWYG 1:1 building of the Mask to the Pad if no expansion is used.
  • Xpedition:
    • Fixed an issue with oval slotted holes not translating properly
  • Allegro/OrCAD PCB:
    • Fixed an issue that was causing parts with Keep-out Bottom to crash
  • CR-5000:
    • Added Terminal Outlines support. It gets its own layer, with a default of SYMBOL-A1 (Assembly). Layer is user definable.

FIXED:
  • Pulsonix:
    • Fixed an issue that was causing Polys attached to a pad to not translate properly
    • Fixed an issue that was causing the header of the .plx to suppress and not import.
  • Altium
    • Reference Designators now properly account for extended Mechanical Layers.
  • Pantheon:
    • Fixed an issue with oval slotted holes. A diameter the length of the short side is used for a circular drill. Turning it into a full oval slot is currently a post-process by the user.
