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.

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.
