  • About edge connectors

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to get an edge connector made of golden rectangles (4mm x 30 mm) spaced by 30mm.
    These rectangles are tied to DGND.
    I I used Footprint Wizard to make the connector.
    The result is attached below.

    Here are my questions:

    1/ We can see that the connection to DGND is only done on the middle of the golden rectangle.
    Would it be possible to have it on the whole length?

    2/ There is an overlapping of the solder mask onto the polygon pour below.
    Should we get rid of it or not?

    Thank you.

    1) Yes. Simple way is to draw polygon over the pad and your GND on the board and set "Direct Connection"
    2) I do not think it is important from manufacturing point of view. It is up to you how you would like to have it.
