CC430F5147: Footprint for Breakout board design

Part Number: CC430F5147

I am pretty sure I am entering wrong forum topic, but this is my first time posting and it's hard to navigate.

I need a foot print for this chip to make a breakout board. Does anyone know if breakout layout already exists, or I need to make one?

If I need to make one, can someone help me which footprint to search for in Altium Library(or somewhere else)?

Best,

Ana

  • How the footprint for this chip has to look like is described in the datasheet, at the end. In Altium you need to search for a 48 pin QFN packet. Normally the footprint for a given chip has to be added to the library. You have to check with the CAD responsible.

    What type of break out board are you planning to make?
  • In Altium, it's easy-peasy: Go to PCB library, and select "IPC Compliant Footprint Wizard" then enter the parameters off the datasheet.

    For extra credit, find a STEP file for the package (see www.3dcontentcentral) and plop it in. Now you have a good quality model.
