We decided to pull together a library example to help demonstrate the concepts during the creation process for our recent webinar on DFM library considerations. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we decided that a good library example should be worth a handful of specifications...
The library contains 34 components of various types, from discrete components to mechanical hardware. All components have been placed on the schematic and their corresponding footprints on a PCB layout sheet to allow you to see the library results when the information is consistent. Also, we wish to highlight the following:
Method of handling the power on discrete logic gates
An method for naming symbols
A method for description information
Key Static parameters
Visibility and order of certain parameters for schematic display
