EMA Releases Ultra Librarian for OrCAD


Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation has just released Ultra Librarian for OrCAD providing symbols, footprints, and 3D models for an expanding library of currently over 8 million parts. “Symbols, footprints, and 3D models are the building blocks of any electronic board design,” said Manny Marcano, president of EMA Design Automation. “We created Ultra Librarian for OrCAD so that our customers could simply download these parts rather than wasting time on the tedious and error prone task of creating them.”

Ultra Librarian for OrCAD is a software plugin for the Cadence OrCAD Capture schematic tool.  This plugin provides a portal to the vast Ultra Librarian library of electronic components. The plugin is tightly integrated into OrCAD, making the library usage seamless within the OrCAD environment.  Symbols may be previewed and placed directly onto the schematic page.  Footprints and 3D models can also be previewed as well as downloaded into the user’s component library for use in PCB layout and mechanical design.  As part of the integration with OrCAD, the symbol, footprint, and 3D model are automatically linked so that netlisting and 3D rendering correctly associate the parts as a single component.

The cloud-based Ultra Librarian library has also expanded to cover over 8 million parts.  This addition of over a million parts includes some of the latest parts from companies like Analog Devices, AVX, Cypress, Freescale, Infineon, Linear Technology, Samtec, Texas Instruments, Vishay, and more.  “We continue to improve our internal technologies allowing us to create parts at an ever-faster rate,” added Marcano.  “We strive to completely eliminate our customers’ need to create parts as we build the ‘Gold Standard’ for EDA libraries.”

Nine Dot Connects: Good Design Instruction is a True Value-Add

11/09/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 2

11/13/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Pete Starkey continues with his review of the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit held recently in Munich, Germany. The second day commenced with a new product launch. “Working together is hard” it read on the screen. Statistics indicated that 33% of new products were late getting to market, of which 28% were late due to insufficient collaboration, and up to 50% of potential revenue could be lost through being late to market. Then the screen read “NEXUS makes it easy!”

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 1

11/07/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Altium held a very successful AltiumLive PCB Design Summit in San Diego, California at the beginning of October for the benefit of their North American design community, and followed it three weeks later with a counterpart European event in Munich. And what an eye-opener it proved to be—literally hundreds of delegates, a superbly organised and managed programme, billed as a completely immersive two-day interactive design experience on a theme of learning, connecting and getting inspired.
