Datasheet: Pin Configuration

When you know the pin package of the component that you want to create form the Ordering Information you must go to the page where the Pin Configuration is. You will see the symbol, with its name and pin package.  For this example:

Component: is “MAX6043”

Pin Package: “SOT23”

Some components have a family with different names but same pin-package. The extra notes at the bottom of the pin configuration will tell you what the differences are. The difference can be the application of an overbar in a specific pin or a completely different name of the pin.

In this example the SC70 pin package of MAX6381 and MAX6383 have the same pin configuration but the pin 3 in MA6382 does not have an overbar. When scrapping Ultra Librarian will no be able to do this so the user must do it manually. It is important to double check the extra notes when working with a datasheet that has a big number of components.

The components MAX222 and MAX242 have the same pin package. The only difference is that the name of pin 1 of MAX222 is N.C.
