Importing PCB footprint

  1. Sep 23, 2007 #1
    Hello All,

    I'm working on a PCB layout in ExpressPCB and I am trying to make a footprint for the AD9959 chip.

    I went to this page here on Analog Devices' page to get a suitible pcb footprint but they don't have any formats that I can import into ExpressPCB: http://www.analog.com/en/SymbolsAndFootprints/0,3152,AD9959,00.html [Broken]

    Originally, I was just going to take the measurements from the datasheet to make the pads but I'm not sure how big the heat pad should be or of some of the exact dimensions for the positioning of the pads. I figured it would be safest to just import one that was already designed to minimize the possability of any issues later.

    Do any of you know of any CP-56 footprints that I can look to for reference dimensions or one that can be imported into ExpressPCB?

    Ok, nevermind. I managed to make the footprint from the measurements in the datasheet. Here is a copy of it in case anyone else out there may want to use it.
