I am designing a development board and I need an onboard Low Dropout Voltage Regulator. There are a few which I have finalised but the problem is that I am not able to find the package for them in any of the Eagle Libraries. Here are the LDO I have finalised and the packages next to it.

1.TPS79650 (6-Pin SOT-223)

2.LP3855 (5-pin SOT-223)

3.LM1117-N (SOT-223 or DDPAK/TO-263)

Kindly help me find the packages for the above LDO or suggest any equivalent LDO.

    \$\begingroup\$ Just make the packages yourself. You will have to do this eventually. Sparkfun has a tutorial on it. \$\endgroup\$ – geometrikal Apr 6 '15 at 8:02

The LP3855 component is available on SnapEDA: http://www.snapeda.com/parts/LP3855EMP-ADJ/Texas%20Instruments/view_part/, as is the LM1117 (although it's not the N variation, so not sure if it differs): http://www.snapeda.com/parts/LM1117T-ADJ/Texas%20Instruments/view_part/

    \$\begingroup\$ I wasn't aware of SnapEDA library. Wow, millions of parts, exports footprints to Eagle, Altium, KiCad and OrCAD, and is free. Can't figure out their business model, but who cares. \$\endgroup\$ – tcrosley Apr 12 '15 at 5:25
