Is there a way to create a single device that has several independently
placeable package footprints ?
I want to create a new library part for the LUXEON Star/O
This is a LED and a lens, mounted on a metal heat-sink plate. There are
SMT style solder pads on the top of the device, but these would not be
directly accessible to the board routing.
I want to place drilled solder pads and connect to the LED using wires,
but I don't want to fix the position of the drilled pads relative to the
I'm working around it at the moment, by using two solder pads with a
loose i.e. disconnected luxeon LED device on the schematic just there to
occupy space on the board.
