Leaving a Lasting Imprint (or in this case, footprint)
Where symbols are all about information in a dimensionless schematic, footprints are about the real world component in a PCB layout. All too often, it is a footprint that causes the respin of a board.
This month, we will work our way through several footprint examples, both surface mount and thru-hole. Also, we will cover:
- Tips and tricks when creating unusual pads
- Demo the new Via Pad library introduced in AD15
- Provide some insight about tolerances
- Demonstrate some of the lesser-known, but very practical features
Note that we will not discuss the footprint wizards in Altium Designer. These have been covered in other videos.
