Parts library files import

edited November 2019 in Parts
I'm working a way to quickly create parts library files and have DEX import them and make the symbol, footprint and 3D model.

XML (Note: multiple parts can be added)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<AutoTRAX version="1">
<part name="LM3103MH/NOPB"
      manufacturer="Texas Instruments"
      partType="Buck Converter" prefix="U"
      description="Synchronously Rectified Buck Converter features all required functions of a Buck Converter" />
<package type="dip" rows="8" />
<terminal name="VIN_1" pad="1"/>
<terminal name="VIN_2" pad="2"/>
<terminal name="SW_1" pad="3"/>
<terminal name="SW_2" pad="4"/>
<terminal name="BST" pad="5"/>
<terminal name="AGND" pad="6"/>
<terminal name="SS" pad="7"/>
<terminal name="NC" pad="8"/>
<terminal name="GND_1" pad="9"/>
<terminal name="GND_2" pad="10"/>
<terminal name="FB" pad="11"/>
<terminal name="EN" pad="12"/>
<terminal name="RON" pad="13"/>
<terminal name="VCC" pad="14"/>
<terminal name="PGND_1" pad="15"/>
<terminal name="PGND_2" pad="16"/>

  • Part for above.

  • How will it work.
    You create the XML file.
    Save the file in the library directory.

    Simple :)

  • Using this file format, it should be possible for some of you guys to write convertors for 3rd party files into DEX library xml files.

  • Sounds like a great plan!
  • Here's a Target 3001! part

    I set extension to .txt

    Convertor should be easy.

  • I see endless posibilities!
  • Last count I had 28 different part types.

    All easy to create.

    e.g. LED

    name="Red LED"
    manufacturer="Kingbright "
    partType="Led" prefix="U"
    description="2.25 V Red LED 5mm Through Hole, Kingbright L-53HD."
    <package padPitch="0.1" padSize="0.05" color="red" roundPads="true" />
    <terminal name="+" pad="+"/>
    <terminal name="-" pad="-"/>

  • do you already support smd resistors with rectangular symbols?

  • I did a quick check on STM32 Config-DB from STM32CubeMX.

    I found the following Packages (and how often they are used):

    which of those are already usable and what would b the package name to use?
    Which of those packages do you plan to implement?
