Part isn't in any eagle library

Recommended Posts

So I'm starting to write up my stroboscopic guitar tuner project. I downloaded eagle, and went to add my first part, an hef4794bp shift register/led driver. I searched through eagle's built-in libraries, and googled a bit, but couldn't find the part. I'm completely new to eagle, and I'm not sure where to go from here. Should I just try to find a similar IC in the library and use that? Could it be that the part is out there and I'm just not finding it or I need to select a different library?

I was just in the same boat 2 days ago. I created my part from scratch.

i used this as a guide

a few note though that I changed. the pads for my chip I left them on the default layer. He says he used smd to add them but I types pad. Also DON'T mess with the grid. It gets really annoying when you build your schematics because the wire need to snap to the grid and your pin for it to have a connection.


Finally the wire he uses to make the shape of the chip, I put it on the tPlace layer
