Version 2017.18 was just released!!

  • Calculator:
    • All parts with Thermal Pads – if a Thermal Pad is less than 1.00 mm width, it will now get 100% Paste Mask Coverage
  • FP Designer:
    • Accounted for condition where the ManufacturerList.txt or PhysicalDescription.txt is missing
  • KiCad:
    • Added the ability to output both the component outline and terminal outlines; these graphics get placed on the Dwgs.user layer
  • Calculator:
    • Mounting Hole component family – fixed an issue with non-plated hole solder mask not mapping to the Hole Size
    • Molded Body component family – fixed an issue when using Tools > Regenerate Library > Descriptions the Length value was 0.00
    • SOD & SODFL component families – fixed an issue with the Footprint Naming Convention: Tools > Regenerate Library > Names fixed the problem
    • SOD & SODFL component families – fixed an issue with the Physical Description: Tools > Regenerate Library > Descriptions fixed the problem
    • LCC component family – fixed an issue when L and L1 dimensions are the same value, pin 1 relocates from the middle to the corner and the Footprint Name should change from LCC to LCCS
    • Non-Plated Mounting Holes – fixed an issue with the Keep-out size generation to follow the Hole Size instead of the pad size

    • Fixed an issue in the Pad Stack Designer for chamfered SMD pads with solder mask swell; the chamfer on the solder mask was not 100% accurate
    • Fixed an issue when moving parts from the Calculator that had mfr. recommended patterns to FP Designer, the program created 2 pad stacks the same size

    • Fixed an issue with "Save As" a new Preference file when Library Expert Pro is installed in a new folder
  • Xpedition:
    • Fixed issue with arcs in associated copper polygons
