Frequently Asked Questions
If I use the supplied libraries, should I verify them for my own use?
A wide range of components is supplied in our standard and supplementary libraries, but you should definitely still check them before relying on them for actual designs.
- Even though they have been supplied by us, you should still check them. As well as checking that the pin numbers are correct, you should also check that the pad size styles are suitable for your design and manufacturing process. If in doubt, call your manufacturer and ask his advice, it is a lot less costly to do it now than after the board has been made!
- Also check that the Schematic Symbols look proportional in your Schematic design, do they look too big or too small in relation to your own symbols.
