Hi, I am new to this program. I have tried everything and can't figure out
why nothing I do is working.
I need a simple adapter board. I watched videos and everything. I am trying
to simply make a small board that has 42 holes for a m27c160 eprom to fit a
36 hole board.
I have went here http://schematicpal.com/ and downloaded the eprom
M27C801-100B1 it shows two boxes the left red box and the right green
circles in the black box. I can only place the red box in the schematic
when I need the other one to just place the holes for me. When I click on
circles they are not circles but pads, I need holes!
Plus the eprom clearly has 42 legs yet the only Library file you can place
in is missing majority of pins. This blows my mind it's not even accurate?
You go to the board view and magically it shows the entire chip but
completely useless as it will not let you run traces, that has to be done
in the schematic where they don't exist!!!
I have tried drawing circles "holes" manually but when I switch to board
view it does not bring them in? I tried grouping the 42 circles together as
that is what I need for the 27c160 eprom but it does nothing.
I can't believe how difficult this is. I want to order these boards but I
need a gerber file. I could whip this thing out in paint in like 10
minutes, here I have wasted countless hours trying to decipher this program
that will not do anything I want it to.
I think learning a new language would be easier them deciphering this
