  • *NEW* PCB Libraries now offers a complete library service for BOM fulfillment. We create schematic symbols, footprints and 3D STEP models for your complete BOM or all the missing parts to complete your BOM. We will create custom parts in your CAD tool format using your library design rules.
    • Send us your BOM and tell us what you want and we'll provide a free quote.
    • 24 hour turnaround on BOM's with less than 300 part numbers.
  • LEAP Database Subscription coming soon (Libraries Enhanced with Automated Preferences):
    • New LEAP library content subscriptions available soon here – www.pcblibraries.com/LEAP
    • Adds hundreds of thousands of new parts not on POD
    • Includes Schematic Symbols, Footprints and customized 3D STEP models
  • Documents on – www.pcblibraries.com/downloads
  • Updated – Surface Mount Component Families.pdf
  • Added BGA and CGA IPC-7351C (Proposed) Solder Joint Goal Tables v1.2.xlsx
  • Updated – IPC-7351B Naming Convention for Mounting Holes
  • Calculator:
    • Non-plated Hole footprint name now has a “A” when Annular Ring Pad Shape is used
    • Updated the indicator light in the Viewer to enhance the description of the various colors
    • Fixed all parts with Thermal Tabs with disappearing radius corners when outputting Terminals
    • Fixed PSON Mfr. Footprint ‘S’ dimension display value
  • Preferences:
    • Added new 3D STEP families for through-hole Radial Disk Resistor and Varistor
    • CGA and LGA Terminal Leads were updated in the IPC-7351B version
  • FP Designer:
    • Fixed an issue when the hole size exceeded 12.70 mm the program now throws a Warning message
    • Calculator QFN was dropping the Legend line if it was less than 5 mm. Rule changed to 2 mm.
    • Fixed an issue with Quad packages in Calculator and moved to FP Designer created dual pad stacks with the same name
    • Fixed the pin text so long pin names will not overlap
  • 3D STEP:
    • Added through-hole Radial Disk Resistor and Varistor
    • Fixed Side Concave 2, 4-Pin Oscillator for micro-miniature version
  • PADS to CAD:
    • Fixed a rotation problem concerning free-floating pieces of paste mask
    • Fixed an issue that was causing the corner radius on rounded rectangles to only be half what they should be when importing PADS files
  • PADS:
    • Fixed an issue that was causing D-Shaped pads to translate to PADS improperly
    • Fixed an issue with chamfered cornered pads with associated copper
  • Expedition:
    • Fixed a translation problem with paste mask checkerboard when it’s on a pin that is both rotated and offset from the origin
    • Fixed a problem that was causing the layers not to fully display
    • Fixed a problem that was preventing the Component Outline from being translated into a Placement Outline
  • Allegro:
    • The 17.2 pad stack scripts will now set the unit precision manually to 4 decimal places. This mirrors what was done previously and allows it to not rely on the default precision.
  • CR-5000:
    • m callouts for solder mask pads will split out properly to be used for the pad name when using IPC-7351 naming
    • Adjusted the naming so that the corners callout stays with its copper pad name, and not the paste mask callout of the pad name
    • Fixed a bug that was causing paste mask checkerboard to also be generated outside of the pad stack, causing an error
  • OrCAD Layout:
    • Terminal Shapes will be redirected to Layer 16 (Comment Layer)
  • Windows:
    • Fixed form format in windows with 125% resolution bug causing Calculator Form Layout issues
