IMPORT INSTRUCTIONS.

If you have Library Loader installed and configured for CR-8000 then the library files are automatically extracted and a batch file is created to convert them prior to import.

CR-8000 Settings

Note that the “Library Path” that you choose in the CR-8000 settings is where the symbol (*.smb) files will be copied.

1. To run the CR-8000.bat file created by the Library Loader App found in your “Downloads Folder” after downloading a part from https://componentsearchengine.com/ga/ you MUST have the Components Editor installed. To ensure that the programs called by the batch file are found, please run it from the “Components Editor Command Prompt” found in Windows Start -> All Programs -> Zuken CR-8000 Components Editor -> Components Editor Command Prompt

This batch file will create the symbol (*.smb) file for the downloaded part and copy it to your “Library Path”.  It will also create the Footprint (*.ftp), Package (*.pkg), and Part (*.prt) files ready for import.

2. Open Components Editor and select “Copy CDB library” from the “Tools” menu.
