What is the spacing between the 2 IO headers on papilio

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I am building a papilio plug on cape for my camera. I need to know the dimensions between the 2 IO headers? I plan to make this in Kicad. Does anyone have any sample layout?

Hello,

 

There is a sketchup model here that can be used for measurements.

 

Or you could always use the Eagle files to get the measurements. 

 

Finally, there is a Papilio library for EAGLE here. It has pre made library footprints for making Wings, MegaWings, and Shields. Maybe you can import it into Kicad?

 

Jack.

I use KiCAD and I don't think it will import from Eagle. What I would suggest is install the free version of Eagle and use that to measure the pin spacing, or if you have a Papilio you could just measure it. They are standard 0.1 headers so all you need is the relative spacing between the two banks.
