Custom Fritzing Parts

Update - October 27th, 2013 I have had a few errors in the library pointed out to me so I've gone through and cleaned everything up a bit. Some interface parts have been removed (I only use them internally), some additional components have been added and I have changed the schematic layout to mimic the physical chip layout rather than group pins together according to their purpose (this makes it much easier to design for a compact stripboard or PCB layout).

This is a collection of custom parts I've made for Fritzing for parts I have that aren't included in the standard Fritzing library. A number of Fritzing projects I have made available for download require at least a subset of these parts (I'll try to indicate them in the relevant posts).

To generate parts I'm using an excellent tool written in Python called fzpzf (original source here, my modified version is here and can be cloned from git://thegaragelab.com/electronics/fritzing-parts) which makes it very easy to generate part footprints in DIL or SIL format.


This section details the components that are available in the library.

PIC Microcontrollers

A collection of PIC microcontroller chips. These are limited to ones I have used or have in stock for later use. The majority are the 14 bit mid-range processors although the two PIC32 variants that are available in DIP format are included as well.

Single line connection headers for various components. These components can be used to replace standard pin header components on the schematic.

Part|Description ----|----------- FTDI|FTDI USB to Serial Connector uLCD|uLCD Display Connector


Hopefully you will find these parts useful. If you have DIL or SIL packaged components that you would like parts for just send me a link to the datasheet and I'll add them here for you.
