    Re: Automatic Library Generation

    Many device makers give Symbols and footprints of their components on their web site free of cost. And some makers such as National Semiconductors (Now TI) have tools such as Ultra Librarian (http://www.national.com/cad/ULib.zip) which create symbol and footprints for most of Nat Sem and TI Parts.

    Apart from all these, Orcad 16.X allows you to create symbols directly from Excel sheet for huge components
    Hoping to be Helpful,

    Re: Automatic Library Generation

    The LPWizard from Mentor can produce the components.

    Symbols you will have to make yourself or obtain from other libraries.

    What system are you wanting them for?
    Before you ask - have you searched the forum? Have you searched Google? - Please do so.
    Please do not ask me in private - ask in public. Also please do not ask me to be a forum friend.
    If I have gone to the effort to help you etc then please have the decency to at least acknowledge it and do not just ask a question then never come back..
