# New DIP geometryΒΆ

In the next dialogbox the parameters for a new DIP (Dual In Line) geometry can be entered. The DIP geometry is a device based on through holes.

The following parameters can be changed:

*Nr pins*

If the total amount of pins is two times the NrPins entered. The pinnumber counting starts with one, and increments with one for the following pins. The pin counting direction for the left column with pads is downwards, and for the right column with pads upwards.

*Pad*

*Pad size solder mask*

If the solder mask pad is not necessary, fill the parameter with zero.

*Diameter anti power pad*

The anti power pad will always be a circle.

If the anti power pad is not necessary, fill the parameter with zero.

*Diameter inner pad*

The inner pad will always be a circle.

If the inner pad is not necessary, fill the parameter with zero.

*Drill hole*

*Distance*

*Clearance*

The initial clearance is the clearance used for this geometry.

*Pin 1 type*

The first pin (1) can be a square or a circle. All the next pins will be circles.

The **Use default rules for solder paste/mask, inner/anti power pad and
clearance** button can be used the fill in values based on the drill
size.
