Latest Microchip packaging is where?
« on: April 13, 2020, 08:11:41 am »
I often find Microchip's site hard to use. I can not find a link to the latest packaging here
https://www.microchip.com/quality/packaging-specifications

Anyway, as a "lucky dip" I found the 2015 specs
https://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/PackagingSpec/00000049BZ.pdf

(The obvious thing to then try, https://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/PackagingSpec/ gives errors)

From the menu at the top... "Design Support", then menus below "Documentation" -> "Packaging Specifications" is that what you are after?

This is the page that links to https://www.microchip.com/quality/packaging-specifications

Hi

Your link seems to match the link I have already tried. It should indeed be the place to go. It is the link given on datasheets etc.

My problem is I am unable to find the download link once I land on that page.

Maybe it is because I use Firefox?

The View Details is a link to some code that grabs the .pdf, so you can't right click and download.  Just clicking the link should bring up the .pdf file though.

Just tried it Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Edge and seems to work OK.  {edit} if somewhat slowly...

I tried this just now. All I get is a specific package pdf, wheras I had hoped top get the big pdf holding all packages.

I cannot see a link or a region to click to do this.

The best I can get is to click on any old package, say XSON, then follow the clicks and then just a small pdf with one footprint.

Yes, there is no single large document any more. 

Splitting them up makes it easier to just update those that need updating, without refreshing the single large document again.
