New Ultra Librarian Website Provides ECAD/MCAD Models, Part Pricing


Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation, a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, has created a website for Ultra Librarian giving electronics designers online access to pre-authored and verified parts with pricing and technical information to help them choose the best electronics components for their designs and the ability to download symbols, footprints, and 3D models. “With the creation of UltraLibrarian.com, engineers now have a centralized, online component repository for part search and model download,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “This reduces potential errors and speeds up the design process by minimizing the time designers spend searching for and creating library content, giving them more time to create outstanding designs.”

The new Ultra Librarian website allows users to search through over 40 million components to compare pricing, availability, and technical information in order to find the perfect parts for the design. The site allows searching by part number, partial part number, or keyword. Non-specific searches often return tens of thousands of results, so users can narrow their search by category, compliance, distributor, or manufacturer. The resulting part list includes links to a detail page, the manufacturer, and the datasheet for final selection. Once the appropriate part is selected, the user can switch to the model page to download a symbol, footprint, and 3D STEP model for the part, if they exist. 

The cloud-based Ultra Librarian model library currently has coverage for over 9 million parts. Many of these parts were created through relationships with the part manufacturers covering the latest and most widely used components. All website users have access to the full library where they can search for a part, preview the symbol, footprint, and 3D model, and then download one or all of them for the design tools of their choice. Ultra Librarian supports 22 of the most widely used EDA tools, and all popular MCAD tools support the STEP format, making UltraLibrarian.com useful to almost every electronics designer.

All part pricing information is available for free. Up to 30 model downloads per month are also free, and each download can include a symbol, a footprint, and a 3D model allowing up to 90 ECAD/MCAD models free per month. Subscriptions are also available allowing for more model downloads.

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).

Field Trip: CID Class Sees How Flex is Made at Streamline Circuits

06/06/2018 | Kelly Dack, CID+, EPTAC
While I was teaching my CID class for EPTAC in Santa Clara, I learned that we were only a block away from Streamline Circuits. Streamline does a lot of military and aerospace work, as well as communications and industrial electronics. The company manufactures quite a bit of multilayer flex and rigid-flex circuits, in addition to rigid boards. This would make a great field trip for my CID class!

Design and Manufacturing Perspectives from DISH Technology’s Les Beller

05/30/2018 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
I recently interviewed Les Beller, a long-time PCB designer who is now a manufacturing engineer for DISH Technology. We discussed his company’s business shift towards 5G and streaming, and the stresses that puts on a design team. He also explains the greatest challenges that he’s facing with HDI and higher frequencies, and the added importance for designers to understand the manufacturing process and DFM tools.
