When a designer needs to create a component for a PCB board, they have many places where they can gather data – manufacturer websites, distributors, aggregators, or even crowd-sourced resources. Manufacturer datasheets provides all the information needed to build a component – PCB land pattern, schematic symbol pin-out, tolerances, ratings, electrical applications, and ordering information. The Ultra Librarian team has built many components (14 million and growing!) and has learned a few tricks to finding the information that you need in a datasheet in order to create library components.
