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.”

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals

06/20/2018 | Dave Lackey and Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
The design process is arguably the most important part of the flex circuit procurement process. The decisions made in the design process will have a lasting impact, for better or worse, throughout the manufacturing cycle. In advance of providing important details about the actual construction of the flex circuit, it is of value to provide some sort of understanding of the expected use environment for the finished product.

Faster Board Speeds Demand Constraint-Driven Design

06/19/2018 | Ralf Bruening, Zuken
Using powerful constraint techniques can be a double-edged sword. While the design process is made much safer by including constraints, it is all too easy to over-constrain the design and make it impossible to complete routing and placement. Even paper design guidelines can make products uneconomic to produce unless a great deal of engineering knowledge is applied during the design.

Making the Most of PCB Materials for 5G Microwave and mmWave Amps

06/13/2018 | John Coonrod, Rogers Corporation
Ready or not, 5G is coming, and it will require the right circuit materials for many different types of high-frequency circuits, including power amplifiers. 5G represents the latest and greatest in wireless technology, and it will be challenging to design and fabricate, starting with the circuit board materials, because it will operate across many different frequencies, such as 6 GHz and below, as well as at millimeter-wave frequencies (typically 30 GHz and above).
