TO-92 is a standard package size and is definitively already in the Kicad standard footprint library.Sorry to hack this threat, but I don't want to start a new one for a simple question:
Who can help me with the footprint of a jfet to92? Something I will need for a distortion compressor I' m desiging.
no section with transistors in the footprint section
Is there also a footprint for capacitors with multiple sizes?
[Is there also a footprint for capacitors with multiple sizes?] -- In the early days of CAD PCB-design, I worked at an "RF" company that designed custom equipment for "covert" U.S. Government agencies. Due to the nature of the "RF" circuits, some of the capacitors that -- could -- be used in certain sections of the circuitry could be any "one" of "four" different sizes!!! Instead of using the technique that Ccaudle has suggested (which is a perfectly fine way of doing things), I used to create custom PCB-footprints that had 5 pins.....1 as a "Common" and the other 4 spaced-out as necessary for each of the different sizes. The schematic would then only show a single capacitor symbol and it would only have a single PCB-footprint. Then, the schematic would have a "NOTES" Reference Number next to the symbol which would provide the necessary information as to which value and type of capacitor would need to be used for each different situation.I designed a mono compressor, is there an easy way to copy the pcb layout to make it stereo?
The idea was to design one channel and than copy paste the other channels.
