    I'll join my voice to those asking for the White and Red versions. Painting this one just looks FUGLY.

    The schematic for this part in the July 27 Fritzing release shows the switching between the ground (pin 1) and pin 3, when the switch is between pins 3 and 2. And SF should also carry these in RED and WHITE, yellow is specifically for video in the AV universe.

    Anyone have a part file for fritzing?

  • It is in the SFE Eagle library, but only the footprint. The footprint is called "RCA". You need to make your own symbol and device.

    Yeah, I couldn't find it in there either. :(

  • rahji / about 13 years ago / 1

    Am I crazy or is this part not really in the SFE Eagle Library? Thanks for any info.
