Hi Al,Originally posted in cdnusers.org by geraldg
Glad the solution above resolved your problem. I'm a front-end (ConceptHDL/PCB Librarian/etc.) type person and don't have much experience with footprint/pad
From what you've described, you have a .CSV file. While this Excel format can be
imported into PCB Librarian to generate the schematic symbol and chips.prt
files, I don't know of a method to automatically generate the footprint from
a .CSV file. Of course, you would use Allegro PCB Editor to build the padstacks
and footprint - but this is a manual process - easy, but manual.
You may try posting another message with the subject line of how to automatically
generate an Allegro footprint from a Xilinx .CSV file.
