SparkFun Electronics Eagle Libraries

SparkFun Electronics' preferred foot prints using Eagle v6.0 or greater. We've spent an enormous amount of time creating and checking these footprints and parts. If you enjoy using this library, please buy one of our products at SparkFun. Please also note that we guarantee that there are some messed up footprints in this library. We've tried to note which are proven and tested, but by downloading these files, you acknowledge that you are using the files at your own risk.

We cannot be held responsible for faulty PCBs. Always check your parts against a 1:1 printout.

This is the complete SparkFun Electronics default foot prints for Eagle 6.0+.

Library Descriptions

We've grouped the various parts into individual libraries to make it as easy as possible to locate the part you need:

  • LilyPad-Wearables - Button holes, sewtaps and petals used on our LilyPad boards.
  • Aesthetics - Non-functional items such as logos, build/ordering notes, frame blocks, etc.
  • Batteries - Battery clips, connectors, and appropriately sized silk outlines for LiPo batteries.
  • Boards - SparkFun breakout boards, microcontrollers (Arduino, Particle, Teensy, etc.), breadboards, non-RF modules, etc.
  • Capacitors - An sortment of paint swatches. Just kidding, it's various capacitor types, sizes, and values.
  • Clocks - Real-time clocks, oscillators, resonators, and crystals.
  • Coils - Inductors, ferrites, transformers, etc.
  • Connectors - Various PTH (Audio jacks, ATX, USB, ZIF, RJ45, etc) and SMD connectors (USB, SD, Edison, SIM, etc). Useful for adding a 4-pin empty 0.1" footprint to a board (for example).
  • Discrete - Diodes, optoisolators, TRIACs, MOSFETs, transistors, etc.
  • Displays - LCDs, OLEDs, etc.
  • Electromechanical - Motors, speakers, servos, and relays.
  • Fuses - Resettable fuses, IE PTCs.
  • GPS - Various SMD and connector pinouts for GPS modules and GPS antennas sold by SparkFun
  • Hardware - Stand offs, heatsinks, etc.
  • IC-Amplifiers - Mostly operational amplifiers but also has some headphone and audio amps with more specific applications
  • IC-Comms - USB to serial conversion ICs, like the FTDI line, plus high speed line drivers, level shifters, bus drivers, CAN transceivers and ethernet PHYs.
  • IC-Conversion - Analog to digital conversion, as well as digital to analog. This includes not only strict ADCs, but audio in and out converters, decoders, thermocouple measurement ics the like. Anything that is a single part that works between the two domains goes here.
  • IC-Logic - Standard logic IC families.
  • IC-Memory - SPI, FLASH and EEPROM based memories
  • IC-Microcontroller - Various micros including ATMega, ATTiny, PICs, and PSOC families
  • IC-Power - Anything that has to do with power delivery, or making power supplies.
  • IC-Special-Function - 555 timers, LED drivers, Motor Control, etc. ICs that do not really fit into the other, more generic categories. Basically, anything that serves some function but has a bunch of brains or special bias circuitry that prevents it from being used as a general part qualifies for this category.
  • Jumpers - Semipermanent means of changing current paths. The least permanent form is the solder jumper. These can be changed by adding, removing, or moving solder. In cases that are less likely to be changed we have jumpers that are connected with traces. These can be cut with a razor, or reconnected with solder. Reference designator JP.
  • LED - Illumination or indication, but no displays.
  • PowerSymbols - Power, ground, and voltage-supply symbols.
  • Resistors - More color swatches.
  • Retired - All manner of retired footprints for resistors, capacitors, board names, ICs, etc., that are no longer used in our catalog.
  • RF - Devices that send or receive RF -- cellular modules, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc.
  • Sensors - Accelerometers, gyros, compasses, magnetometers, light sensors, imagers, temp sensors, etc.
  • Switches - Switches, buttons, joysticks, and anything that moves to create or disrupt an electrical connection.
  • User-Submitted - Parts submitted from SparkFun users everywhere!
