Title: Oval pads for HDMI connector
Post by: otrab on June 01, 2016, 01:41:12 pm
Hi guys

With a friend we designed a pcb that have some HDMI connectors. For this we need to make some oval pads, as the image.
Does anyone know how to do it?


We will manufacture it in Seeedstudio. We asked in the online support but we still have no answer.

Those are slot milled pads. Yu set this up in the CAD program as a slot. then provide a callout on the mechnical layer with slot dimensions.
