HI, At my company, we use Cadence Allegro Design Entry CIS and have a centralized library for all the components. The schematic symbols are maintained as a library file (OLB), but the footprints are maintained as individual files (.dra). Now I was trying to convert the existing library to altium( (...)
Hello, I am making changes to comoponents ion the schem library then in the schem i am going "update from libraries", and the component symbols are not you know whats wrong?
Try to find same type of symbol/footprint from altium library. Compare the pitch, pad dimension and lead span with component datasheet
In altium 15.0 I made a new footprint in a custom library which I made previously. This is the 6th footprint I have made in this library and once I finished it I saved and compiled the library and everything seemed to work fine. In my schematic file in another project I clicked on a (...)
You need to check if the footprint associated to PCB device matches to the pinouts of the SCH component in the library.
The reason of this happening is that the component jumps far out of the boundaries of your screen because the origin (center) of the footprint was set incorrectly. Return to the footprint library where you made the footprint, then use Edit => Origin to return it to the center of your footprint. Then choose (...)
The footprint of such an LCD module is a single row of 100 mil pitched pads, so you could simply use a header from the standard connectors library as footprint. However, as marce already explained, it's absolutely paramount to learn how to draw your own schematic symbols and footprints because sooner or later you'll be (...)
I've been trying to use the footprint manager in altium to change a number of footprints at a time. To do this I go in to the manager, select all the components I want to change and add a new footprint by using browse to find the exact footprint in the library. I then validate it and press (...)
when I enter the 3D Step Model to my pcb library, the model does not appear.... i have go to Place > 3D Body, i'm choice Generic Step Model, then i'm hit Ambed Step Model, and i have chose my Step File, but when i'm click OK Button, the Model isn't Appear / Show in my PCB doc/ library..... Can someone Help me?.....
It is called multi part component in altium. You need to create the component in proper way in library, where each symbol is drawn as Part under one Component. Look at New Part command in schematic symbol editor. Then you need to have same Designator to all parts to get them all to one footprint. Petr
If you have got eagle PCI then look in those library I think there is one in there and just use the import wizard in altium but like the others it easy to make your own from the data sheet. If you struggle YouTube is a good place to start
The documentaion says all Protel designs and libraries can be read by altium. Did you try to simply open the library file?
Of course you can use altium built in library symbol and then create a footprint for that symbol. You can find a PMOS in miscellaneous devices (PMOS-2) copy this to your library and the create the footprint.
There isn't any kind of quad transistor array in altium library. I really need it for my PCB. I would be grateful if anybody tells me how can I create a model for quad transistor array in altium? Thanks
Hello I'm a New member here. I'm making a circuit schematic but I can not find the component and footprint Reed Switches in the library that I have So, which library where I can find a footprint reed switch? Reed Switch Symbol: Click Please include a link where
Hi All. I know to import 3D STEP on altium PCB footprint (from footprint Lib > Place > 3D Body). But I can see, there is another option of adding PCB3D Lib at Schematic library. Please see the attached picture. I create a separate PCB3D Lib using a R 0603 STEP and added in into Schematic Lib ... but what is the (...)
You could just make a component in the library and use the accordian feature to create an antenna footprint possibly?
hello... i can't find DIP8... where is it? in witch library? it wasn't in "Miscellaneous Devices"...
Yes, you can create a single schematic component (with a single footprint) that has separate child symbols representing each of the independent parts within the component. For instance, a single LM348 contains four discrete 741 op-amps in a single SOIC package. After you add/create the new LM348 component in your schematic library, choose "Tools
footprint can be added to component in schematic library editor. footprint can be edited in pcb liprary editor.
