I'm relatively new to Eagle and HW design in general. I'm trying to create a
symbol and package for a SMD push button.
The pushbutton symbol has 2 pins, while the package has 4 smd pads. Pads 1
and 2 are electrically connected, and so are pads 3 and 4. When I create
the Eagle device, then the number of pins and pads obviously don't match.
Now I could:
1) leave 2 pads in the package unconnected.
2) generate a symbol with 4 pins and leave 2 pins unconnected in the
How can I tell Eagle that two pads are always connected together? It would
be nice if I had only two pins but could route to any of the equivalent pads
and leave the other unconnected, but I cannot think of a way to accomplish
this. Is there a way to do so? Alternatively, what is the 'conventional'
way of handling this in Eagle?
