Ivan,
        can you point me directly towards a detail for the package size? I
will then send you the footprint I would use from SMT+ 's footprint patterns
if it exists already. I use SMT+ because they give good support for new
footprints that didn't previously exist in their reference. I typically get
a footprint in a day after emailing them the PDF file with the part
dimensions. Costs us $175/yr to renew the support and maintenance every year
but it easily saves that amount of time and frustration worrying about the
precise details of the land pattern generation. In the meantime I continue
working away and incorporate the new footprint when it arrives.

        Give me your fax number just in case I cannot get at the PDF file to
email it. That way I can fax a print
