Designing footprints, symbols and 3D models can require a lot of time for the designer. You can shorten this time by using some of the best footprint and symbol generator tools.
Avoid the tedious work involved with symbol properties and building them. OrCAD Library Builder reads datasheets and inserts information to each pin on the symbol.
PCB Libraries is a distributor of tools to autogenerate footprints, which can be linked to all ECAD tools. This way, you avoid the slow process of building footprints and 3D models.
