PackageWright provides powerful footprint generation capabilities for both standard packages and non-standard components such as connectors.
A variety of pad, padstack, and symbol generation routines enable precise generation of footprints, keepouts, assembly, and design symbols derived directly from the detailed geometric model. Both area-based and line-based symbols can be automatically generated from the package geometry, and pads and padstacks can be positioned precisely with respect to terminal contact areas.
In addition to the automated footprint generation routines, the editing environment enables access to powerful geometric processing capabilities such as area-based Boolean operations and offsets.
The footprint generation routines are extensively configurable by the end user to enable consistency and compliance with internal company practices, EMS requirements, and established standards such as IPC-7351A.
Footprints generated within PackageWright may be exported to a variety of ECAD platforms.
