Questions relating to designing PCBs
By pellepl

being new to designing PCBs, I have a (possibly stupid) question:

The BatchPCB service has the restricion of 8 mil traces. Now, I happen to have an IC with 0.4mm between each pin, more specifically the SN74LVCH16373A (TVSOP package) - google to find the PDF ;)

When creating that part in my library with Eagle Light, using 8 mil pad-widths, I get overlapping restriction areas. This is solved by reducing the pad-width to 6 mils - but alas! that won't pass since 6 mils is too little. Catch22! Any tip, anyone?
