    Naming Parts within your Pads Libraries - HELP



      I'm searching for information on the best way to set up Pads libraries on our system here.

      Can anyone give me some information on how your company has their libraries set up... do you have separate libraries for resistors, capacitors, transistors, diodes...etc? Surface Mount and Through Hole?


      How do you name your Part Types?  examples-  CAP_SM_1206, CAP_TH_CK05, IC_SM_LT1782...etc

      How much information do you need in the name?


      Do you break them into families? Like CAP... also SM (surface mount), TH (thru hole)?...

      name them company part numbers?



      Any information would be greatly appreciated...
