Trying Eagle for the first time. Or, perhaps, Eagle is trying me. Why is it the industry standard software is always such a UX mess? ( http://10rem.net/blog/2012/01/26/the-n00b-filter-bad-ux-at-its-finest-in-eagle-pcb ). Anyway.
I was trying to use the Samtec SHF-105-01-L-D-SM part (the 10 pin gadgeteer surface mount connector) eagle part from the Samtec site, but
- It doesn’t show up in schematic view and
- If I add it in board view, I get “Can’t backannotate this operation. Please do this in the schematic!” (I love software that yells at me when it can’t figure something out)
What are you all using for a part? Looks like most/all of you are using Eagle, and I see the part in your pictures.
Can you share it? I didn’t find it in the forums, wiki etc. I can probably pull one off the Eagle design for the Hydra (http://wiki.tinyclr.com/index.php?title=FEZ_Hydra_Developer ) , but thought I’d check for a proper lib first.
