In cadstar it is not possible to assign Finger holes.The only way is you assign circular hole in pad assignment and then provide drawing for Finger hole in drill drawing layer.ANd also provide the details of Finger hole(x,y dimension) in fabrication notes. Regards, abhi
You can do it in few ways. We have created as a pin the same shape as paddle for this part and used paste mask recommendation. Works great and assembly guys have no problem working with this devices. Just check help in Allegro it is explained in detail. M
Hello, I did this package with a costume pad on Allegro 16.3: 81936 So my problem is when I´m routing, because the centers of the pads are the same or it's in the same place. Sombody knows who to fixes? I trying on the shape file changing the center but when you save de padstack this is the message: PA
spudboy488, thanks for the reply! Although I can get pads in layers other than drill to be setup as oblong, drill won't allow it, at least in Orcad 9.2. I believe I'll have to talk this with the pcb house. And if I needed a final pull to upgrade, here it is!!! ;)
Also let us know which software you are using, pads?
Another method if you don't like skill is to save your GDS as a text. Use PERL or any language to find the pad layer opening, then, with some text processing your can get the pad location. If your GDS-text only include the pad opening layer, it is even easier. OkGuy
What you are placing is actually "via" not "pad". Eagle doesn't support long shape for via. For changing pad shape you need do it in library editor.
Hi, I have designed a impedance controlled trace as shown in the attached image. I have tested the trace (Figure 2) with network analyzer by probing both sides of the trace. The resulted transmission signal (S21) is flat (0dB) till more than 10GHz. When I probed the trace with pad (Figure 1) and tested with the same method, the S21 is no
Hi All, I am using padS Layout software. I need to create a footprint for TPS51200 regulator. On the page 34 of its Datasheet (it is attached) an example board layout is shown. "Non Solder Mask Defined pad" shape is suggested, but I do not know how to make it in padS PCB Decal Editor. Is it possible to make such (...)
Hello, Is it allright to put thermal vias in the DPAK drain pad so that i can transport heat away to some copper on the opposite surface.? I have heard somewhere that its wrong, but in truth, cant see why it should be a problem?
Hi Jeff, This seems to be a common problem, and I've run into it many times. I don't think it respects the No-ERC marker. It seems that if there is a net connected to the pin it will combine the copper as one pad, but if you don't have a net connected it produces the error. I believe there is a way to do this properly (see techdocs.alt
What about non circular pads?
I would like to print my PCB with pin pads open and don't have any idea of how to do this with PowerPCB :( ? help plz...
It seems that someone is making this project harder than it should be... Ive just completed a wire bond board with the following parameters: Die Size: 3750 x 2500uM Die pad pitch: 80uM pad distance from edge of Die: 158uM (passivation opening is 4uM) pad shape is Hexagonal: 72uM x, 113uM y. I created the bond (...)
open layout tool 1)than go to tools--> library manager 2)when the library manager opens select the component in which u want to make changes 3) select the pad which u want to change and right click properties 4)check which padstack is used ie the padstack name 5) go to spreedsheet and select padstack. 6)navigate to (...)
I have tried the eaagletoprotoel convertor, here is waht happens. I load board run the 'run eagle4.ulp' and it comes up with error UNKWON IDENTIFIER pad shape XLONGOCT but if I run 'run eagle4-1.ulp' it goes through ok. I used the eagletoprotel converter saved it then ran Altium designer nothing happened, So I treid to open it from
You'll need to assign the thermal relief style on the pads themselves ; you can't assign the plane to a net as you don't have a netlist.
This error is the most stupid thing i have seen i this tool, as if You have a flaw in defining a pad shape or padshape is not placed in the right folder or something like that, this error shows up. Another resson could be You have a property called eg revision and it is a forth running number for having controll of Your (...)
lol@marce. The other rumour is that it will improved :) If you want to add single holes to your design then you need to add them as a component, you cannot simply "add a pad". See here for some info on that.
hi, i want to create a padstack for TH connector. the connector footprint says 40mils dia. but the actual pin is 25mils. so my doubt is if this 40mils is the actual drill to be made on the board? please help
I have Orcad PCB editor 16.5. I make a new drawing with the type being package symbol, and set up the grid and work area. I go to place padstacks by selecting layout>pins. Then the "select a padstack" box should come up but it doesnt. What am i doing wrong?

the IPC7351-B is using rounded rectangle pad shape for many components, even the chip. Rounded pads are better for lead-free surface mount assembly using reflow, because lead-free solder doesn't flow as well as leaded solder and the aperture openings in the paste mask stencil are rounded corners. It may also benefit low profile components (...)
Hi all, A few days ago I have created a custom pad shape in Altium to be used at the end of a FPC (ZIF connector). All went apparently well and I was able to draw the desired circuit, however when exporting the circuit to Gerber and using gerbv to view the file I noted something strange: within each pad there is a thin "island" which is (...)
hii all, how to do make an oval shape pad in altium designer? In the pad option I couldn't find anything.Expecting a positive reply. thanks.
Add in the padstak one anular shape. Only game pcbcad print the oles in pads. Bye
You cannot make a rectangular pad hole in Pr0tel99SE. Rectangular holes have to be routed or punched by the fab. You should call your board fab and discuss with them what they expect for fab instructions. Normally, you would mark the location of the square or rectangular hole center with a unique size pad in the layout edtor. You would then p
Did you try this in pad Editor of Allegro? Because I just tried it and can make 25uM circular pad no problem. M
1) How do I change pad sizes globally in Proteus-ARES (inner and outer diameter and also the shape of the pad)? 2) For hand-drilling, is there in Proteus-ARES a drill aid facility similar to the "drill-aid.ulp" script existent in Eagle? Without such an aid I can not center the drill in the middle of the pad. Short (...)
could i create padstack using layoutplus?. how to change the shape of padstack in layoutplus ie circle 2 rectangle?
hi i new to this field. i m working in single layer board(top and doubt is if i change the bottom layer to top layer in single trace, one round shape pad occurs(just i click 1 for top layer & 2 for bottom layer). that pad is so large in my layout how to change this size and different in gerber file. plz explain it
In padstack properties de-select plated, make size and shape simple, make hole same size as
Problem: Device with a large thermal pad (which is not covered with soldermask), needs small thermal vias in the pad to sink heat away, and those vias should be covered with a dot of soldermask to prevent solder wicking. The obvious approach (place a via in the thermal pad and check the box for "Force complete tenting on top") doesn't (...)
Hi Guys, I am running IR analysis. I have added pads all around my square chip. The IR map that I am getting shows a large red circle (indicating high IR drop) in the middle of the chip. When I had pads only on the top and bottom, I got a red squished football like shape in the middle of the chip. My chip also has VDD and VSS follow pins (...)
How to edit different types of pad in component pads .. any one help me
I would reccomend doing the layer as a positive layer, and use templates and copper pours to create the desired result. That way the copper when poured will obey your copper to track/pad clearances.
how can design a pad with bigger hole size in altium? for example i want to create a pad with 100mil hole size and the solid part circle 200mil?
Hi, there, I was using OrCAD v10.5 Layout Plus previously, and recently I switched to OrCAD PCB Editor. But I have a problem. In OrCAD v10.5 Layout Plus, I could connect a pad to the surrounding copper like copper pour type (please see Fig.1). What I need to do is just to change the padstack setting by checking the flood plane/pour option (Fi
Hello, SMT inductor pads are a strange shape in the SRU2009-100Y inductor....... .......... ...why are they this strange it to reduce eddy current heating of the pad? ..also, how do you draw this pad in EAGLE pro layout software?
I made a custom pad which is two half circles as the picture shows. 85139. Each half circle is made with a Solid region and a line and a arc to make the edges smooth (I dont know why in the PCB Library editing I cant design a round custom shape, so the only way I could make it was making a Solid Region with approxima
Use solid shapes and not hatched for high currents. What is going on at the connector pins top left?The track goes around the pin and then down into the pad instead of just up intot he pad?
Hi guys, I'm using a really old P-CAD 2002 for my lab work and am using the shape-based router to autoroute my board, which has several hundred pins. My ground layer is a plane layer that has 4 different ground regions made with plane region shapes. It seems that the autorouter is only routing a pad directly on top of its ground region (...)
You an draw your T-shaped pad as a shape symbol and use it in the pad stack. Create a shape symbol in your required shape and save in the directory of your board file. In the pad stack you create,browse for the shape SYMBOL you created and use the (...)
Swen is talking about reassingment's. If you reassign a top layer I.E. with solder resist and solder paste in your assignments then you need to also reassign the bottom ones too. Because reassignments do not swap. When reassigning any pad code always do it for both sides and you will have no problems. Why is this? I do not know, perhaps because
Hi I done PCB for Higher amps rectifier...I,use default pad,parts,while schematic and routing..after getting from manufacturer pad size..and holes,trace very thinner and smaller..How set a trace size..while using large size for routing its getting bigger and bigger in eagle..but after generate reduced to any calculations..for
Autolisp would be your friend here, its 15 years since I last did some programing in it so I am rather rusty (very), or manually extract the data from the dxf, the relevant text for each pad (is it a BGA?) is: AcDbBlockReference 2 MYpad__1_ 10 341.60562 20 471.7369299999999 10 = x co-ordinate 20 = y Or find a friendly person who
square, you have more space in the core area if you have pad on four sides.
Hi Okayguy, How do you normally do the Bonding diagram XY coordinates? Do you manually measure the center of each pad coordinates? What is supplies star routed? PP
I try it in the pass time. It's the must-be way to do in FPGA synthesis by DC. Therefore I found most of the information reguard in insert_pad all from Xilinx ftp/web. U can find it in their web. BTW, I found many limit in doing auto insert pad . U should follow this guid-line. 1. Name ur pad module interface signals in this rule (...)
