I have to create a footprint for a part for which the datasheet is given limited details. I have the X and Y co-ordinates for all the pads given in the datasheet. So I do have to place all the pads one by one taking X, Y co-ordinate from the datasheet. It consumes most of my time if the pin count is more than 50.
So, is it possible to import any text file to allegro in which all the pin location is provided to place all the pins in one shot? And how to map the padstack in this case?
Hope someone can help me out.
Thanks & Regards
NO, you don't need to pick the padstack. When you recorded the script, you recorded the entire process to place two pins with the required padstack from the Padstack list, in the required location(s). You did do that? Maybe not...
Of course, the drawing parameters will need to be set to allow the pin parameters you need..
Maybe placing 500 pins manually would be a better way?
