Hi everyone,

I've used eagle for quite a while but haven't encountered this before.
Like if i find a miniature connector on Molex, where can i find the
eagle library for it? do i have to create a custom part? will there be a
problem if afterwards i create a BOM(bill of materials) based on custom
parts. what's the right way to do it?

Thanks

Hi Jingbo,

I hope you're doing well. If you can't find the part in the con-molex
library that comes with EAGLE you may want to check schematicpal.com or
element14.com to see if you can find suitable parts. If not you'll have
to make the part yourself.

The bom.ulp that comes with EAGLE can pick up any attributes(defined
through the ATTRIBUTE command) you assign to the component so you can
very easily specify manufacturer's part number and such.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia
