NEW / ENHANCED:
  • Documentation:
    • What’s New in IPC-7351C? has been updated – www.pcblibraries.com/downloads
    • Help > Topics > User Interface has been updated
    • Added new Excel spreadsheet documentation to compare IPC-7351B with the proposed IPC-7351C
      • Added in this installation folder:
        C:\Program Files (x86)\PCB Libraries\Library Expert 2016\Documents
  • Preferences:
    • Add Incremental Pin Pitch for Gull Wing and Concave and Body Length for Chips
    • Added a new Preference > Rule option for Cathode/Anode default pin names – Alphanumeric or Numeric
  • Altium:
    • A layer tabs update has been installed just before the full update at the end of component creation to help post-process scripts
    • At the start of library creation the cursor will now become an hourglass, at the end it changes back to an arrow
    • As part of the STEP update, updated the scripting so that it can handle mils and inches natively. As there are no functions that I know of for Microns, millimeter conversions of the Micron values (basically what was done before) are used in that instance.
  • FP Designer:
    • Pad Stack Manager:
      • Any edited pad layers with a zero pad size are deleted
      • Any pad stacks with all pad layers with a zero pad size will be deleted unless there’s a hole
  • 3D STEP:
    • Added a new option for micro-miniature SOFL’s

FIXED:
  • Preferences:
    • Changing the Pad Stack Name to Mils did not save to Console Preferences
  • FP Designer:
    • Creating hole sizes in Mil Units sometimes rounded of incorrectly
  • Calculator:
    • Fixed an issue with 4-Pin Concave Chip Array pad size calculation
    • Fixed an issue where the calculator Footprint tab was dropping the default values
    • The scroll bar in the component dimension panel now defaults to the UP position
    • Fixed a Legend issue with Corner Concave Oscillators
    • Fixed the Pin 1 default location for Receptacle Headers to upper left
  • 3D STEP:
    • Fixed an issue with changing units between mils and mm
    • Fixed issues in dealing with non-millimeter unit types
    • Fixed a graphic display issue for the color selection images when the screen resolution was set to 125%
  • CR-5000:
    • Fixed an issue where terminal outlines were causing the pad stacks to build improperly
  • Allegro/OrCAD PCB:
    • Fixed an issue with pads with associated copper being rotated in the wrong direction during a PADS -> CAD Conversion
