R-PDSO-G8

I am trying to make a package of the SMD IC LM2903 TI.

I am using the data sheet “D (R-PDSO-G8) (would give page number, but TI didn’t number them)

My template in Library Expert is “Small outline pkg (SOIC, SOP)”. I am using this one because It looked close to the PDSO. However, I get the dreaded “Line 59 error” in Eagle upon attempt to transport by script.

The error reported by Eagle is “Invalid SMD size 19.8882 7.1628 invalid range is 0…13.107mm”

 

Should I be using a different package template?

There is already a Texas Instruments "D (R-PDSO-G8)" in the SM FPX file.
 
There are over 800 different Texas Instruments footprints in that library.
 
Just open it in the Library Editor and search for D (R-PDSO-G8).

yes, You are correct! Tongue

My project deadline is coming close, and in a rush I only looked in the "TH" library for one.

Lesson learned. Disapprove

I look forward to the time when I can explore all that PCB can do.

Thanks for the reply and lesson. Tongue
