HL series uses CF3 socket which is unique and hard to create in altium. does anybody have footprint of HL8529/CF3 in altium or altium compatible?
have a look at http://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/#tags=HL8529%7Ccf3
i clicked the link you sent and i couldnt find anything there! im new to sierra wireless website and i find its confusing! could you please point me where is the footprint?
you can check in the ‘hardware reference document’. If what you want is not there, let me know…
i found “AirPrime_HL_and_WP_Series_Snap_in_Socket_Customer_Process_Guidelines_Rev5_0” in ‘hardware reference document’. it has all the dimensions for CF3 socket but the problem is its so complicated and time consuming to create. what im expecting is altium layout component for CF3 socket so i can easily use it on my design. please let me know if you have done any PCB layout with CF3 socket. i will just take the CF3 socket footprint from the layout.
if you have HL series development board layout, please give me that. i can extract CF3 socket footprint from there.
you can download the Devkit PTS from http://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airprime/development_kits/airprime_hl_series_development_kit_user_guide/
I’m not sure you will get the required info… If not let me know
I still did not get what I wanted. I have attached sample layout footprint from TI here (.bxl file). I’m looking for files like this. do we have them for HL8529?
i have tried to upload .bxl file from TI but its not allowing me to do so.
Can you attach that to some ftp servers and share me the path?
Below link should work to the CAD files for the whole HL series (you need to log into the source to get access).
Thanks for the link. Is there by any chance you have the CAD or footprint files for the WP77xx Series? I’ve contacted Sierra Wireless but they’re sales rep doesn’t understand what I am looking for. I’m hoping she can get someone in the engineering department to communicate with me.
I have asked as I do not have one at the moment and will post it assuming I do get it (I will also have it pushed to the source. Worst case you could build on the HL one.
I’m actually looking that the Gerbers for the MangOH board. I will post when I am done with creating the footprint. Thanks for the reply!
Oh, it looks like I can’t upload any files because I’m new. If anyone is looking for the footprint just send me an email and I would gladly send it to you. FYI- it hasn’t been confirmed that it is correct but my drawings were based on the MangOH DXF files and gerber layouts.
