Actively involved in the business of restoring component libraries, we came across an interesting issue regarding the reuse of footprints. One benefit of standard package types is that it allows us to reuse footprints. There are standards by JEDEC and IPC that are carefully followed, right?
In our quest to understand what specs call the shots, we realized this goes way beyond industry specifications. The results were eye-opening for us, and we want to share our findings with you.
In this webinar:
Briefly define the purpose of JEDEC and IPC and why it matters in our footprints
Discuss the evolution of the specifications that drive the footprint dimensioning
Look at various angles of approach when creating or reusing footprints
