Footprints

Proper LED orientation varies depending on the symbol printed on the PCB.

Standard LED footprint

This is the standard LED symbol that will be used by all PedalPCB projects. All other LED footprints will be progressively phased out. Note that the Cathode of the LED is installed into the square pad of the PCB.

5mm LED footprint

This is the footprint commonly used for 5mm LEDs. Note that the Cathode of the LED is installed into the square pad of the PCB.

3mm LED footprint

This is the footprint commonly used for 3mm LEDs. The pinout of this footprint is technically incorrect; the Anode is installed into the square pad of the PCB. This footprint will be progressively phased out of all projects as new stock is ordered.
