I have a package component that has all the XY coordinated for the SMD pads. I can easily create (copy and paste) a file (either in excel or text file) that contains this information. What I'm wondering is whether there may be an ULP script that imports these XY pairs and created the SMD pads from that information. If there isn't one please point me to the right info page so that I can start creating the ULP myself.
What I would need to do in the script is
- browse for the file containing the XY coordinates (maybe angle orientation too)
- enter the Pad dimensions and any other options (or if i have already configured that on the software by having selected to place the pad then take that info from there)
- Place the pads.
This would be useful for new packages where all that info is available in data sheets. I'm sure someone has already done this but I can't find it anywhere. Perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms.
Thanks in advance.
