HI, can someone please give me some instruction on how to add the symbol library and footprint?
basically i am trying to add symbol files for xilinx artix 7 fpga, which seems to be already included in the offical library release for kicad 4.0.x version here:
so i just downloadedthe xilinx-artix7.lib and .dcm pairs, and added the library file from the “Preference -> Component library” menu… however when i open the schematic editor, there is an error popped up saying the library is failed to be loaded… as showed in the screenshot attached… any idea why it would fail? should i download the whole repo and replace everything under library directory instead? thanks!
It sounds like the download has created an invalid file. How exactly did you download it? A reliable way to get files from github is to download a zip of the repo, unzip it locally then add the file in the Component Libraries dialog.
