Hi, so i'm currently in the process of building my own motor control system using pc board files that I downloaded from the internet and have run into a problem with sourcing one of the parts. The part in question is a 2.5mm TRS female jack. As far as i can tell the specific jack needed cannot be bought in my country.
I have been able to buy a similar TRS female jack though but the problem is that the pin structure is different. Here is a screenshot of the original jack pin structure from the .brd file:
The five green pads on the left are for the TRS pins. The right one is not. Here's the manufacturer diagram for the original TRS jack showing the pin numbers:
This is what the TRS jack that i could find looks like:
and here's the manufacturer diagram:
What I'd like to know is, how would i go about modifying the .brd file to accommodate the new TRS jack? I have never designed a pc board before and so I'm pretty clueless as to how i should do this. It seems like i need to find the library that this part is in but I cannot find it anywhere. I'm guessing it's because it's somebody else's custom library part that I don't have in my library. How can I edit this component?
Any help will be greatly appreciated
