Modeling a component using a specific package type

Post by natalieh » 15 Mar 2017, 18:00

These are the package types currently available in Sherlock:
DIP, PDIP, CDIP, SOIC, PDSO, LSOP, SSOP, TSOP, TSSOP, SOT, SOJ,
CBEND, PQFP, CQFP, QFP, QFJ, PLCC, HSOP, MSOP, DIE, LCCC,
QFN, SON, USON, CBGA, BGA, MELF, CC, SOD, AVX, DPAK, KEMET,
TO, SM, SPAK, DFN, VCHIP, RADIAL, DISC, BOX, AXIAL, CGA, SIP

If you need Sherlock to model a component using a specific package type, this can be achieved during the part editing process by entering the package type in the ‘Package Name’ field and clicking apply. For example, if you would like to model a component as a BOX, simply enter BOX as the package name and apply the changes.

Note: There is some flexibility when entering package names. For example, Sherlock still processes the package name ‘BOX XXXX’ as indicating a BOX package type. However, if BOX 1010 is entered, the package type is changed to CC. When editing package names, please be mindful of the resulting package type changes.

If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to reach out via the forum or to me directly.
