You can find Schematic Symbols and PCB footprints in a number of different ways;
1 - Search via the Component Search Engine
2 - Directly via the RS Online websites
3 - Within our new Obsolescence Manager tool
4 - Or via other websites such as Traceparts, OEMsecrets or on the component manufacturers own websites.
There are 2 options available to you if the part you need doesn’t exist;
1 – Create the model yourself using the FREE online PCB Library Wizard
2 – Let our experienced team create it for you, by submitting a request, we’ll then deliver the model within 48 hours
With the FREE online PCB Library Wizard you can create your very own IPC compliant parts quickly and easily.
