Some sunstone footprints are incorrect?

I found several footprints that are different from the layout recommended by the manufacturer's datasheets. Therefore I was wondering if these footprints still work for the parts?

Here are the lists of part numbers that are different:
AU-Y1007-R
AU-Y1006-R
EXB-V8V153JV

Any inputs are going to be accepted! Thanks in advance!

I checked the AU-Y1007-R and the pin spacing does not match the data sheet as you identified. Please edit the footprint to match the data sheet. I will report this part to our development team.

AU-Y1006-R This part looks ok. the pads are a little longer than listed in the datasheet and the mounting holes seem a bit large. You might want to make the mounting holes 2.5mm but the part will fit as is.

EXB-V8V153JV This part will also work as is. You can make the pads smaller if you like but all the pads are in the correct locations and the part will fit without any changes.

Thank you for reporting issues. Feel free to contact customer support if you have any questions, or feel free to browse through your Printed Circuit Board (PCB) resources.

Another family of parts that has the wrong footprint are the the whole family of Panasonic capacitors in the ECE-V1VA family. They have a footprint of 22mm in diameter, and the parts are actually 6mm in diameter! Obviously, this precludes using them without this being fixed. :lol:

I'm new to the program, and I couldn't figure out how to easily modify the family of parts so I could use them.

John,

Again, thanks for reporting this issue. In the current release there is no way to modify the footprint assignments for an entire family of parts. Once you create the footprint that is correct for your part you can use the Manage Parts tool to update the parts in the taxonomy one at a time. We will work to make this process easier in the future. Please contact customer support if you have any questions.

UGH! I think I'll wait for the correct library. :lol:
