CAD Symbols and Footprints

Both PCB footprints and schematic symbols are available for download in the vendor neutral .bxl format. These .bxl files can be exported to the leading EDA CAD/CAE design tools using the Ultra Librarian Reader, saving designers valuable time.

The UL Reader is available for free download. Footprints generated by the UL Reader are based on the IPC-7351 specification. The UL Reader is a subset of the Ultra Librarian toolset that can generate, import, and export components and their attributes in virtually any EDA CAD/CAE format (learn more).

Step 1: Download the free Ultra Librarian reader software

Step 2: Enter the full Maxim part number to see if the symbol and footprint available

A package of all available CAD symbols and footprints is also available for download (ZIP: 3.4GB).
