KiCad daughter card template

Postby tized » Tue May 13, 2014 1:31 pm

Hi All,

First post here...

I've created a Parallella daughter card template for KiCad: https://github.com/TiZed/Parallella_Template

The template includes a schematic block for the 4 PEC connectors with signals. For the PCB the template includes the Samtec BTH footprints, correctly spaced, with the Parallella board edges marked as a comment.

Enjoy,
Ohad

Hi,
I tried to usage the template (for a JTAG adapter)
If I open the schematic it complains about missing Samtec_BTH library.
Ignoring the message, and deleting every connector but the PEC Power, and than trying to update the pcb
the library: "D:\Projects\KiCad_Libs\Samtec_BTH" is not found.
Could you provide that librarym too?
Thank you in advance,
ESI

Hi,

I fixed the bad library reference and also added the samtec.lib symbols library to the template.
You can also find the whole Samtec BTH footprint library here: https://github.com/TiZed/Samtec_BTH.pretty.git

Thanks,
Ohad
