BGA naming in footprint wizard

Hi I have created a BGA footprint using bga wizard. but the pin numbering in my actual chip is in reverse order to what the part created.

When i try to change pad property by right clicking on the pad and then re-exporting works. can i bulk edit the BGA pin names ?

Make sure your datasheet does not show the bottom view before you assume the wizard is reversed. (Could be quite an expensive mistake.)

The data sheet just has this as a pin reference. But as a general query if I have to do bulk pad naming how do i do it ?

That’s about 600 pads ?
The first PCB package I bought (For a lot of money because I was young and had none) was limited to 500 pins. Times have changed :slight_smile:

Naming all those pins without errors is not very trivial.

There is a project to copy pin naming info directly from a dasheet PDF into an spreadsheet progam, where you can edit it, and then run a python script to extract an Eeschema symbol from it. If should not be hard to find if you know it exists.
