The Digilent Fritzing Parts Now on the Wiki!

A long while ago, I wrote a few tutorials about using Fritzing to create circuit images, tips and tricks, and how to make your own parts. All of these tutorials were inspired by my own experience making Fritzing images for my projects, and creating custom Fritzing parts for some of the Digilent chipKIT boards and Pmods.

When we got our new batch of interns this summer, Bobby had the task of creating more Digilent parts, including Fritzing parts for NI Academic Parts, as well as updated Pmods and chipKIT parts. While creating these parts he used my tutorials as a guide. After creating them, he made updated tutorials on editing parts with code, with tips and tricks and an introduction. We also wrote several blog posts during the process.

I compiled all of these tutorials into one Instructables collection that can be found here. As cool as those tutorials are, that’s old news!

Whats the new news? The Digilent parts are now on the documentation Wiki! Now there is one consistent place where you can go to find all of the Digilent Fritzing parts.

If you want a part for a specific board, you can go to the resource center for that board. This is the same page that contains the schematic, reference manual, and demos.

Under the section entitled Documentation, there is a sub-heading for Fritzing parts. There you will find the Fritzing part for that board. Sometimes there are multiple versions of that part, the one I made, and the updated version Bobby created. In that case, there will be rev 1 and rev 2, where rev 2 is the most updated.

For some of the parts, Bobby even created Fritzing bins. The bin file looks just like a normal Fritzing part file when you download it. However, when you upload it, it creates a bin and populates it with all of the parts listed in the description for that bin file. There is a separate page on the wiki for bins.

If you know all you’re looking for is Fritzing parts and you just want a list of all of them. We also have a section on the Wiki with a master list of parts.

All of this information, and more is explained in our new Fritzing video starring Bobby, me, and Mike Higgins’ voice.
