Today’s engineers want to design and take products to market at an accelerated pace. In view of this, global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Electronics has worked with electronic design automation (EDA) value-added reseller EMA Design Automation to make EDA library components far more accessible to engineers. The distributor announced that designers can now have unlimited access to Ultra Librarian symbols, footprints, and 3D STEP models from digikey.com.
Access To Unlimited EDA/CAD Models Saves Design Time
Ultra Librarian is an online library providing symbols, footprints, and 3D models for millions of electronic parts.
Some points to know:
- Ultra Librarian offers models in over 20 EDA and computer-aided design (CAD) formats to cover the vast majority of the PCB design tools in use, including Altium, Eagle, KiCad, OrCAD, and PADS.
- Models are created using the Ultra Librarian Desktop software, which uses a sophisticated combination of templates, pdf extraction, and verification algorithms to quickly capture all important component information required.
- To ensure the highest accuracy, consistency, and adherence to IPC and other standards, models undergo more than 30 different verification checks, and many of the models are also verified by their respective device manufacturer.
“To better serve our customers we have worked with EMA to remove the download limits of Ultra Librarian EDA and CAD models,” said Randall Restle, VP, Applications Engineering at Digi-Key. “We now have model coverage for over 1.25 million parts, meaning our customers will be able to download a very high percentage of the models they need for a design, saving a significant amount of time during the design cycle.”
