I need to make a new component for an Optek OP124 pill pack diode. This is
a tiny bullet shaped package designed to be placed in a hole drilled between
the top and bottom sides. Tthe top side is anode, the bottom side is
cathode. There must be no plating in the hole.
I can place an SMD pad on the bottom layer and another SMD pad on the top
layer. I can then place a hole of 1.8mm diameter through the pair of pads.
If I place the pads exactly over one another I cannot name the pads. If I
displace them 0.1 mm I can then name the pads.
When I try to route the component, EAGLE shows the air wires going to the
correct places but it never draws the traces and fails to route. I have
tried AUTO with grids down to 1 thousandth but it never routes.
Any been able to make a component that goes inside the board between solder
and component layers?
