  • Library Editor:
    • To simplify use, we removed the V2015 XML FPX format and reverted to the FPX legacy format. We will provide PADS p/d files for the "PADS to CAD" translator (available with all Professional licenses) until we add the necessary features for irregular pad shapes.


  • Calculator:
    • Fixed Radial (Electrolytic) Square Pad with Rounded Corners
    • Changed the footprint name prefix for the DFN Polarized Capacitor to CAPPDFN
    • Fixed issue that was suppressing the Body Outline for the TO-220 Horizontal and Vertical parts
  • FP Designer:
    • Fixed SMD pad stack names with corner chamfer cul (Chamfer Upper Left), cur, cbl and cbr
    • When placing a pad with a pin number that already exists now throws an error message
      • Removed the ability to have multiple pins with the same pin number
    • Non-plated holes were labeled as Thermal Pads. This was updated to Mechanical Pin.

    • Fixed the Chip > Capacitor, Polarized was not generating a STEP output
  • Allegro:
    • Rotations for symmetrical pad stacks have been oriented properly for right reading pin text
  • Altium:
    • Fixed a problem with donut shapes that were causing the pad stack not to generate properly
    • Fixed a problem with donut shape through-hole pad stacks that was causing the hole to offset improperly
    • Keep-outs for Fiducials and through-hole parts now translate properly
    • Solder Mask for DShape pads is generating properly
