Symbols and footprint for ferrite beads


I am struggling to find the symbol and footprint for ferrite beads.

I am looking to use 0805 beads and I can use reistor or capacitor footprints, but I find it strange that there wouldn’t be dedicated symbols and footprints.

What am I missing?


A footprints are reusable to WHATEVER they fit. There isn’t the need to have duplicates. That is why footprints are assigned separately.

If you don’t understand that I can’t even give you a good example. Trust me. This will start to make sense the more you get into it. :smiley:
