Hi, I am a newbie with PCB design and EAGLE CAD. I was creating a custom power MOSFET package for my project.I found that in EAGLE CAD there are two options - SMD (red symbol) and PAD (green) to  specify the physical location of the pins. I could not however find when  we have to use SMD and when to use PAD.It would be great  if someone could help me with this.  Note: I checked the master library and found that the power MOSFETS are using PAD's Thank YouRahulOriginal article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/195818?tstart=0#195818.

Hi Rahul,It is described in the EAGLE PDF manual.You can choose which to use dependent on whether you have a through-hole or SMD design.Original article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/195892?tstart=0#195892.
