The three rectangular pads shown in the data sheet represent the holes needed to place the part on the board. Since slots tend to drive up the price, especially for prototype quantities, you may want to substitute round holes large enough to accomodate the pins.

Thank you. I tried looking at the footprint, but I'm not sure if the rectangular blocks in the footprint represent the metallic layer surroundin the drilled hole or the actual drilled hole. The schematic I'm using is here:http://products.cui.com/CUI_PJ-202A_Datasheet.pdf?fileID=4976 Do the three rectangular blocks represent the hole or the metal area that surrounds it?

You may not find the part you are looking for in our parts taxonomy, but there still may be a footprint available. Go to the layout and select Insert Add Footprint. Here you can search for jack and you should find something that you can either use or modify to work. If you find something or modify a footprint you can either add it to your layout directly or pair it with a symbol (either one from our library or your own) and add it to the taxonomy so you can place it directly on your schematic. The link below will take you to the forum post that walks you through the parts creation process.

DC Barrel Jack

Postby AndrewF » Mon May 14, 2012 9:30 am

Hello, I was looking for part PJ-202A in pcb123 but couldn't find it or anything similar. I was about to try to make a schematic and layout from scratch, but I find it hard to believe that nobody has used a simple DC barrel jack part before. How are you guys powering your boards? Is there some other part already in pcb123 that can serve as a dc power jack? I'd rather not try to draw the footprint manually.
