Electronic – Where is the Eagle component library for 0.1″ breakaway headers


I want to put some breakaway headers into my Eagle CAD file. By that, I mean these:

breakaway male headers

Does Eagle come packaged with a library for these? If so, what is the part called, and which library is it in?

Eagle does indeed. The library you will want to look for is called pinhead. It has various 2.54mm (0.1") pitch pinheaders in it.

If it's not on the list, go to the Eagle control panel window, right click on Libraries and choose Use all. Then, in the schematic window, go to Library > Update all to update the libraries list.
