Yes, perfectly understandable.

You're definitely right. I wonder how I missed that. :/

Updated version in attach.

I assume you meant 74AUP1G00 :)


The symbol is the same, however the device is different - the extra 6th pin is NC. KiCad does not seem to handle symbol/component differently as opposed to
eagle, for example.

Can't we add the extra NC pin on the footprint ? Maybe DRC will issue some warnings/errors though.

Anyway we can add some hidden pin if needed, and use that naming convention. Again, since we're mostly using openmoko components (I assume no manufacturer
changes from latest GTA02) we can just add the prefix and, if we need to change to some other component/outline, we add another prefix as well.
