Are there any TSOP spaced parts in the parts db yet?
I ask because I would like to design a shield in fritzing that includes a TSOP SMD mounted part? Will this fly in the Fritzing Fab?
we don't have fully ready-made parts for this yet, but there is a very quick way to create them:
- place a generic IC with the number of pins you need (you might want to switch it to an SMD type for this)
- edit it in the part editor, and for the pcb view, pick your desired TSOP footprint from /parts/svg/contrib/pcb
I guess it's so easy that we could add these to the core library.. Which variants do you think we need?
And no problem for the Fab.
Ahh thanks for the pointer. It appears that a good number of SMD footprints in the svg dir. Will try this next time. built my own this time.
