Tamber Update

To start, my apologies to anyone waiting on the completion of any of my projects, especially the components libraries; my work placement is eating up all my time, which makes it a little difficult to sit down for any length of time and work on a component footprint. ;) I’m current working on clearing my project heap, so that I can get back to working on the component library; the first thing I’ll be concentrating on is the memory sockets, both schematic parts and footprints, which will be released in the normal place (The git repo).

The priority list as of 2011-07-23 is as follows (Where ‘schematic’ in completion column means that I’ve completed the eeschem file, and ‘done’ means I’ve also completed the footprint for pcbnew):

Part JEDEC Document number Completion DDR SO-DIMM 4.20.6 Schematic (commit 208ede0..dd58d38)

DDR DIMM 4.20.5 Schematic (commit dd58d38..f7495de) DDR2 DIMM 4.20.13 DDR3 DIMM

4.20.19 DDR2 SO-DIMM 4.20.11 Schematic (commit 208ede0..dd58d38) DDR3 SO-DIMM 4.20.18

These will all be created according to the JEDEC datasheets and footprint specifications, so they should be right. (Please, please let me know if you spot a mistake, I’d like to get these correct so that people can use them. Oh, by the way, I’m releasing the component collection under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License ; because it does nobody any good if they can’t use it.)

I am also considering accepting requests for parts to be added to this collection, but please be aware that I’m working on this in my copious free time (hah!), so it may be some time before components get added. (Hell, it’s taken me 3 months to get to having enough time to double-check the schematics currently in the library.)
