DSub connector symbols


#1

I am using the last Nightly and footprint/symbol libraries.
Here do I found the DSub symbol connectors? (DB9, DB15, …)
In this version I just found some Conn_2Rows-37Pins_Shielded to link with Connector_Dsub:DSUB-37_Male_Horizontal_P2.77x2.84mm_EdgePinOffset7.70mm_Housed_MountingHolesOffset9.12mm but the shield doesn’t connect. I remember of use a Connectors_DSub:DB9MD symbol, not present anymore.

The mounting (or shield) connection pads of that footprint still have pin number 0. Our current symbols however uses pin number SH for shield (or MP for pure mechanical mounting) pins.
Created an issue about that https://github.com/KiCad/kicad-footprints/issues/1243


However the symbols for db connectors also still use pin number 0
meaning symbol DB37_Female_MountingHoles should fit your footprint.

Thanks @Rene_Poschl.
