Answer: You can obtain footprints for ADI components by going to the  product page of the desired component, choosing the symbols and footprint link located under the functional block diagram. Next download the program ultra librarian reader and the bxl file. After installing the ultra librarian reader, open the bxl file. The Ultra Librarian reader will allow you to export the footprint in one of 16 different CAD software formats.  THe Ultra Librian Reader needs to be installed once on your comput. Additional component foot prints can be created by downloading the bxl file of the desired component and exporting the desired format using the Ultra Librarian Reader.
