Eagle part for rubber keypad? [message #162507] Tue, 28 July 2015 20:52 Go to next message

Hi all,

I need to make a pcb to place under a rubber keypad, the usual type with
a conductive pad under the dome of each key.

After some time searching I can't find an eagle part that does the job.
I can sit down and create one myself, but why reinvent the wheel?

Does anybody know the name of a library and part to make the keypads?

Thanks in advance

Philip

Hi Clem,

Yes, I had noticed this one. But when I try to load the files into Eagle
7.3 it complains that these are not eagle files. I opened them with a
text editor and they are for Eagle version 6.x.

Any suggestions?

Tks!

Philip

Hi
The file is fine in version 7
The issue is getting it out of github
One way you get an HTML file
Another way you get the library file with stuff on the front and more on
the end.
Try this way:
From the link click Adafruit Trellis.lbr

Then click RAW
Then copy what you see into a file and save it as Adafruit Trellis.lbr
Then open the file in Eagle.

HTH

Because it's faster than carefully vetting someone else's part to your design rules and conventions, then making the inevitable modifications.
