Samtec provides footprint files in several different formats and it would be handy to be able to import any one of them and save having to construct one from scratch (their documentation on the SFP and QSFP cages isn’t the best).
They offer 2 formats, none of which I can currently find a converter for, does anyone know of a way to import any of …
Altium Designer. I’ve found the altium importer, that requires Schdoc and Pcbdoc files, what I have is a .IntLib, can that be split into Schdoc and Pcbdoc so I can import it?
what they term ‘ASCII’ which gives me a file with an .asc extension which is ASCII and has the following header
!PADS-POWERPCB-V2007.0-BASIC! DESIGN DATABASE ASCII FILE 1.0
They do also list a ‘PADS’ format however downloading that gives me the same IntLib file.
Any convertors out there I make use of to get either of those file types into kicad?
