History

0.1.31 (2017-10-10)

  • Removed *_ in statement that caused an error in Python2.
  • Removed duplicated entries in pin-style table.
  • ~ and # are now allowed in pin-style keys.
  • Parts dictionary changed to OrderedDict so it retains the order parts were entered in. Important for passing random part generation tests.

0.1.30 (2017-10-05)

  • Specifying -a option allows new parts to be written to an existing library but prevents overwriting existing parts. Using -w in conjunction with -a allows added parts to overwrite existing parts.
  • Part name, reference prefix, footprint, and manf. part num. are now allowed on beginning row of part info in a CSV file.
  • Expanded the lists of mnemonics for pin types and styles.

0.1.29 (2017-07-31)

  • Fixed erroneous library generation when part number is omitted from first line of CSV file.
  • Changed default output library to kipart.lib if no output library is specified.
  • Changed default output CSV file of kilib2csv to kipart.csv if no output CSV file is specified.

0.1.28 (2017-07-27)

  • Added reader for Lattice FPGA devices (except iCE40). (Thanks, Adrien Descamps!)

0.1.27 (2017-05-24)

  • Fixed issue #11 (blank lines in CSV file were skipped and multiple parts ran together).

0.1.26 (2017-05-21)

  • Fixed issue #18 (crash when symbol side for pin was left blank).

0.1.25 (2017-05-03)

  • Fixed problem caused by pin side designators not being lower-case (e.g., “Left”).

0.1.24 (2016-12-22)

  • Fixed Xilinx reader function to parse leading comments in their FPGA pin files.

0.1.23 (2016-12-13)

  • Added ability to create hidden pins.

0.1.22 (2016-11-29)

  • Fixed readers for Xilinx, STM32, PSoC devices.
  • Pins on multiple sides of a symbol are now distributed in a more attractive manner.

0.1.21 (2016-09-20)

  • Extra stuff on starting line of library no longer kill kilib2csv.

0.1.20 (2016-09-16)

  • Fixed bug where kilib2csv was choking on footprint lists in part definitions.

0.1.19 (2016-09-16)

  • Added utility to test kilib2csv and kipart on randomly-generated CSV part files.

0.1.18 (2016-09-14)

  • kilib2csv utility added to convert KiCad schematic symbol libraries into CSV files suitable for input to KiPart.

0.1.17 (2016-06-15)

  • Use same type of sorting for unit names as for pin names so (for example) unit ‘ADC_12’ comes before unit ‘ADC_2’.

0.1.16 (2016-06-12)

  • Added reader for CSV-formatted pinout files exported from the STM32CubeMx tool. (Thanks, Hasan Yavuz OZDERYA!)

0.1.15 (2016-02-17)

  • Added reader for Xilinx Ultrascale FPGAs.
  • Fixed insertion of spaces between groups of pins when pin number starts with ‘*’.
  • Replaced call to warnings.warn with issues() function.
  • fix_pin_data() now strips leading/trailing spaces from pin information.

0.1.14 (2016-01-30)

  • Fixed incorrect y-offset of pins for symbols that only have pins along the right side.

0.1.13 (2015-09-09)

  • The number of pins in a bundle is now appended to the pin name instead of an ‘*’.

0.1.12 (2015-09-03)

  • Added capability to insert non-existent “gap” pins that divide groups of pins into sections.

0.1.11 (2015-09-02)

  • future module requirement added to setup.py.

0.1.10 (2015-08-26)

  • Now runs under both Python 2.7 and 3.4.

0.1.9 (2015-08-21)

  • The bundling option now only bundles pins where that operation makes sense: power input pins (e.g., VCC and GND) and no-connect pins.

0.1.8 (2015-08-17)

  • Input data from the CSV file is now scanned for errors and fixed before it can cause problems in the library file.

0.1.7 (2015-08-14)

  • Added reader functions for Xilinx Virtex-6 and Spartan-6.
  • Broke-out reader functions into separate modules.
  • TXT and CSV files are now acceptable as part data files, but the reader has to be built to handle it.

0.1.6 (2015-08-13)

  • Fuzzy string matching is now used for the column headers.
  • Choice-type options are now case-insensitive.

0.1.5 (2015-07-29)

  • Multiple parts can now be described in a single CSV file.
  • Added function and option for reading Cypress PSoC5LP CSV files.
  • Simplified key generators for sorting pins by name or number.
  • Improved ordering of pins by name.

0.1.4 (2015-07-27)

  • Added option for approximate (fuzzy) matching for pin types, styles and orientations (sides).

0.1.3 (2015-07-26)

  • Multiple pins with the same name are now hidden by reducing their pin number size to zero (rather than enabling the hidden flag which can cause problems with power-in pins).

0.1.2 (2015-07-24)

  • Symbols can now have pins on any combination of left, right, top and bottom sides.
  • Added option to append parts to an existing library.
  • Refactored kipart routine into subroutines.
  • Added documentation.

  • Fixed calculation of pin name widths.
  • Made CSV row order the default for arranging pins on the schematic symbol.
  • Fixed sorting key routine for numeric pin numbers.
  • Spaces are now stripped between fields in a CSV file.

0.1.0 (2015-07-20)

  • First release on PyPI.
