I'm new in Kicad and I;m interested in how to find/create footprints?
For example I need footprint for this component HDC1080DMBT: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/hdc1080.pdf I'm not sure what to do. Is it better to download existing footprint (if so, how to be sure it is good one) or to create a new one.
There is a housing_son library. I haven't upgraded in a while but there isn't much in it. I haven't upgraded my libraries for a while though. The only 6 pin I see is 1.5X1.5mm though. About half the size you need. You might have to make this one.
Thanks for quick response. I can make it, together with some other I'm missing.After I make them, is there a way I can sent libraries to you, so you can verify them and include them in your library, so every one can use them.
See http://kicad-pcb.org/libraries/contribute/ and especially KLC. Be warned that the accepting process may be long and difficult (so I have heard).
The librarians could use a little (or a lot of?) help but they have said that most of the 'long' part is contributers not responding back to them over issues.
