How to Organize Your Parts List

How would you like a systematic checklist to make sure you
have all the parts you're supposed to have in your schematic,
bill of materials and PCB design?

Here's a free tool I made you can use for any PCB design
software, since the principles stay the same.

With this checklist you will:
  • Keep your parts library organized
  • Keep parts up to date
  • Track availability of parts (manually)
  • Have data sheets at your fingertips
  • Prevent hours and hours of corrections to your footprints and re-sending board files to your PCB manufacturer
  • Most importantly making sure you don't have the wrong footprint on your PCBs and having them thrown in the scrap heap because of one mistake.
