Version 2018.03 was just released!!

  • Library Editor:
    • Added a new dialog box editor for the library date column.
  • 3D STEP:
    • LCC component package now has wraparound terminal leads (instead of Bottom Only).
    • LCC component package now has polarity marking in 8 different locations.
    • FP Designer - added an option for Polarity Marker in any corner or center edge. There are 9 options.
  • Xpedition:
    • Added Physical Description to the Cell Description field.


  • Calculator:
    • Fixed an issue with the Vertical Mirror feature. When switching between component families disabled Mirror Vertical.
    • Vertical Headers: fixed an issue where a particular pin pattern turned all the pad shapes to square.
    • Fixed an issue with the DPAK component family Paste Mask reduction pattern.
  • Preferences:
    • Solder mask defined pad oversize now displays properly in the viewer and CAD tool
  • Altium:
    • Fixed an issue with bottom layer pads that was causing the program to crash.
    • Fixed script output so that it now allows spaces in the name.
  • PADS Layout:
    • Fixed an issue that was causing rotated paste mask pads not to offset properly.
    • Fixed an issue that was causing Square and Rectangular rotated pads not to translate with the proper rotation.
  • Xpedition:
    • Pad names will now include ‘mm’ if millimeter. This will separate them from pads in Mils.
  • Allegro/OrCAD PCB:
    • Fixed an issue with specialized through-hole pad stacks that could cause the program to hang.
  • General:
    • When checking if a pad stack is unique for programs that split-out pad stacks, the polys that were introduced will be ignored, if they’re the Terminal Outline.
