What be in the Adafruit Eagle library

hells yes its my very own mixtape of package footprints. Dont forget you can also grab parts out of any adafruit project's .brd file by running extract-pkg.ulp (or whatever its called). However, since its nice to be tidy, I'll be merging everything into ONE FILE called the Ye Olde Adafruit Eagle Librarie, available at github

Please note, this library is under serious construction, it'll be updated constantly with old parts files that must be copied in & cleaned up! You can almost certainly 'subscribe' to the project at github, I just dont know how.

The license

Most of 'em are either Eagle parts that I've changed a little to make them easier to solder, some are 'handmade' and a few are from

Its released into the Public Domain - that means you can do whatever you want. We'd like it if you kept the author email/url in the part description, just so we can be alerted if there are errors.


Whats innit?

A plethora of tasty parts such as….


  • 1x2 - a 2 pin 3.5mm header
  • 2.1mmjack - a through-hole 2.1mm DC jack
  • FIDUCIAL - you know, a fiducial!
  • USB - mini-usb jack with nice labels (4ucon part #06564)
  • JST_2PIN - 2 pin 2mm JST connector in SMT and THM
  • PINHD-1x1 - 1-pin hole for wires, etc
  • PINHD-1x9 - 1x9 0.1" pad hole for wires/header, etc. with round pads
  • PINHD-1x10 - 1x10 0.1" pad hole for wires/header, etc. with round pads


  • AAA - PC pin single AAA holder. Mouser part #12BH412 - but pretty much any 1x AAA battery holder should be the same
  • CR1220 - 12mm coin cell holder in THM or SMT

Classic libs

  • LED - the classic LED library, with some larger THM pads and fixed 0805 to IPC standards
  • C-US - The classic capacitor library, with some larger THM pads and fixed 0805 to IPC standards
  • CPOL-US - The classic capacitor library, with some larger THM pads and fixed 0805 to IPC standards
  • R-US - The classic resistor library, with some larger THM pads and fixed 0805 to IPC standards
  • 1N4004 - a basic power diode with larger pads

Crystals & such

  • CERMOSCILL - ZTT (through hole), CSTCR-G and AWCSR SMD ceramic oscillators
  • XTAL - NX5032 and NX8045 SMT crystals

Switches, buttons

  • EG1213 - Right angle slide switch
  • EG1218 - Vertical slide switch 0.1" spacing
  • EVQQ2 - nice 6mm SMT tact switches
  • OS102011MA1Q - Slide switch

Displays LCDs & LEDs

  • IV-18 - IV-18 VFD tube
  • RGBLED_CA - 4-pin RGB LED with common anode
  • TS12864 - Monochrome 128x64 pixel KS0108 LCD

GPS modules


  • Trimpot - SMT trimpots, including TC33X package
  • SPEAKER - PS1240 inexpensive 3Vpp piezo
  • FB - Ferrite bead Digikey # P9821BK-ND
  • L - THM 1-2Amp inductors such as 6000x and 1800R series
  • PS603 - Small 8 ohm speaker from Mouser
  • PNA4602 - 3 pin 38KHz IR detector
  • Arduino - A 'shield' layout



  • ATMEGA32U4 - in TQFP
  • AT90USB162 - in TQFP

Battery chargers

  • LM3622 - Lipoly
  • LTC1730 - Lipoly
  • LTC1731 - Lipoly
  • MAX1811 - Lipoly
  • MAX1898 - Lipoly
  • MAX8601 - Lipoly
  • MC3340/2 - NiMH/NiCad

Boost converters

  • LT1173
  • LT1302 - up to 600mA @ 5V DC/DC boost
  • MAX756 - ~200mA 3/5/Adj DC/DC boost
  • MAX757


  • 555 - 555 timer chips, with smaller round pads instead of oval
  • DS1307 - RTC with battery backup
  • 78xx - The original Eagle lib with larger pads for the TO-92 package
  • MAX6921 - VFD driver in PLCC
  • PN2222 and PN2907 - matching NPN and PNP BJT's, in nicer-to-solder packages
  • FQN1N50C - TO-92 MOSFET
  • 74*125 - this is for the 74AHC125 we buy, its a bit bigger than most DIP chips and its been a pain.

Obligatory Warning

While it probably goes without saying, there are no guarantees that the footprints or schematic symbols in this library are flawless, and we make no promises of fitness for production, prototyping or any other purpose. These libraries are provided for information purposes only, and are used at your own discretion. This applies to any third-part libraries you may be using, and your first reflex should be to approach anything you didn't make yourself with suspicion (and be only slightly less suspicious about the things you did make yourself). We really make every effort to produce accurate footprints, and many of the items found in this library have be proven in production, but we can't make any promises of suitability for a specific purpose. If you do find any errors, please feel free to contact us and let us know about it so that we can update the library accordingly!

I want more!
