incorrect part shown in the schematic

    by GDaddy » Fri Jan 24, 2014 12:01 pm

I'm brand new to PCB123 (today) but have quite a bit of experience with ExpressPCB and with Eagle PCB software by CadSoft.

In my first PCB123 project, I've run into a problem. When I specify a 10-contact connector, AWLP-10/3.2-G-R (DigiKey Part HDM10H-ND), a 14-pin connector appears in the schematic. Yet, the correct part number (AWLP-10-...) appears in the bill of materials. Also, the part number shown when I place the "cursor" on the part in the schematic is correct (AWLP-10-...), but the part shown in the schematic has 14 pins.

Other connectors in that series also show 4 more pins than selected.

Any suggestions?

That is an odd part. You can just go to the footprint remove the two extra mounting holes. When you update the layout footprint it will for the schematic symbol to update to match. This doesn't always provide a well formed symbol.

The other option is to edit the footprint, edit or create a symbol, and pair the two into a new part in the taxonomy. This will give you the best result, but requires more work.
