Do you have a web-link to the physical mfr. datasheet?

Do you have a mfr. datasheet or a mfr. part number? Who is the component mfr.?
 
You cannot create a footprint without component dimensions.
 
Here is what I get if I do a Google search.

You have to create this library part in Footprint Designer. This is a QFN socket.
 
Here is the footprint dimensions. Everything you need is here to create this library part in 15 minutes.

Hi Tom,

Where can I get footprint designer software? If I buy PCB library expert software from this website, Will I able to create this footprint from generic template?

Thanks,
Hiep

Yes, if you purchase the "PCB Library Expert" you will get 4 features that the LE Lite does not have -
  1. The Librarian gives you the ability to save all of your component dimensions and part attributes in neutral FPX format for your library management.
  2. User and Default Preferences allows you to globally change all of your drafting and solder joint goal settings.
  3. Footprint Designer allows you to create non-standard package footprints with unique pad stacks and pad placement. And you can save this data in your FPX file library.
  4. Access to "Parts on Demand" (POD) which currently has over 170,000 component mfr. part numbers and component dimensions available in FPX file format. The database of components is growing fast and will eventually have millions of component mfr. part numbers.
