Is there a way to create a “footprint” that contains multiple components?
I need to create a footprint for a “chip antenna”. See for example the chip antenna: https://suntsu.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/SATCA-1GID-WFB1.pdf
The antenna component needs a very specific trace pattern plus some 0402 components for tuning. I’d like to create a footprint that encapsulates all of the traces needed for the antenna part and the surrounding support parts so that the antenna component can be easily moved (or used in multiple projects). I’d rather not construct this on the board itself. Perhaps a “fall-back” would be to create a separate board with the antenna component parts, then copy-paste it into the final design, but would rather have a true footprint.
Any suggestions are welcome!
