Re: Raduino seperate
One reason for not doing that, is you
might have a lot of parts on the other side also. To dual footprint
smd and through hole, means the smd pads need to be double sided
with a thru hole. So taking up space on the other side.
Another reason is that in many pcb
packages, the pcb has to be the same as the Schematic. Which
means every part you wish to dual footprint needs to have two
parts on the Schematic where required. Or to avoid this, every
part needs a special PCB dual footprint in the Library.
