    Ultra librarian- .dra file, .psm file Reply

    Hi all,

     

    I am using OrCAD Capture CIS Lite and PCB Editor Lite. I am trying to design a simple circuit. But I'm not able to get the footprint of components. I downloaded the .bxl file from TI website (http://webench.ti.com/cad/cad.cgi) and extract the library using Ultra Librarian.

     I can't find the .dra or .psm files of the component. When I try to create PCB for the circuit, the footprint is missing.

     When I check the property of my components, say MSP430G2xx, the PCB footprint is PW14. But I can't find that file. So that I can place it in the pcb library.

     Can anyone help me out on this issue?

     Thanks!

    Which version of The editor are you using?  I will try and recreate your problem for you.  Once we can reproduce it I suspect we can fix it.

    I'm using OrCAD Capture CIS Lite v16.6.S026

     

    I've got a new problem now. The Ultra Librarian just got updated and now I can't select any tool in UltraLibrarian Reader (Free one)

    Hi vinjk


    In the Lite edition some tools and options will not enabled. Better you can try to create the footprint with the recommended in the data sheet.With this creation also we can edit the properties of the components.

    Thanks & Regards,
