1) All MSP430 processors from Texas Instruments.
2) Coilcraft parts
3) Linear Tech switchers
3) Everything at DigiKey (maybe DigiKey could help with this)
4) 3D models of all existing parts

Or 3d model editor like pattern editor to edit existing 3D models to create new one. For example all diodes has similar patterns. So i can create new 3d model via change height or width properties existing model.

I would like to see every part used on an Arduino Uno in the library -- no exceptions. (the Arduino is an Open-source hardware board, and they provide schematics, etc, so you can build your own) This would be a nice move from a marketing standpoint; there are a lot of webpages devoted to the Arduino, and a lot of them have eagle files because at one time eagle was the only free alternative. Imagine being able to post a message that says "The 300-pin Freeware version of DipTrace handles an Arduino board just fine, and every part that is on the Arduino is already in the DipTrace library".

The Arduino Uno schematic is at:
[ http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/Ardui ... ematic.pdf ]
[ http://arduino.cc/en/Main/arduinoBoardUno ]

As a possible follow-up, here are some other open-source hardware projects:

Not really a library request but.......
It would be great if part manufacturers would provide component and pattern libraries as a product support function rather than just an engineering drawing as part of a datasheet.
This is the 21st Century after all.

If most PCB design applications could read the manufaturers component and pattern data and then be able to import directly into a library we would all save a lot of time and effort and avoid stupid mistakes.

My twopence worth

We need to hand-stuff and/or rework prototypes, so the pads on all our custom SMT packages have 20 mil pad extensions beyond the recommended pad size. Any chance of providing such footprints ready-made?

Please specify electronic type or manufacturer you need. We will consider every proposal and best ones will be added to our to-do library list. All suggestions are welcomed.

With kind regards
DipTrace Team
I'd like components with bigger pads and drills to accommodate hand soldering.
Also, using same drill sizes when you can throughout the library.

Hi,

Connectors: USB, micro-USB, SD cards, Compact Flash (CF) cards (several manufacturers)

Memory : commonly used SRAM (44-TSSOP II), SDRAM (54-TSSOP II), and LPDDR (60VFBGA, 90 VFBGA) from ISSI, Micron, Alliance, IDT, Cypress, Winbond ...

FPGA/CPLD: Altera Cyclone IV and V (F484 and U484), Lattice MachXO2 (100 LQFP, 144 LQFP) and Lattice XP2 (144 LQFP and 132-CSPBGA)

Thanks

Some components from Cirrus Logic (like the CS8414, CS8416, CS4334 and CS4354) would be a plus, since most EDA's don't include them (except for Eagle that has a tiny library). Also, displays from Kingbright would be great.

Different type ans size single pads (square, rectanhgle, cicrle etc) and pin in schematic
