Proteus Users Can Access EMA's Ultra Librarian 14 Million-Part Database


Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation announced the availability of Ultra Librarian symbols, footprints, and 3D models for PCB designers using the Labcenter Electronics Proteus Design Suite. “Adding Ultra Librarian support for Proteus users means a whole new set of additional designers can save valuable design time by downloading verified library content rather than creating it from scratch,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “This gets us one step closer to our goal of providing the ‘Gold Standard’ of PCB content for all electronics designers.”

The Proteus Design Suite is a complete EDA software solution for professional PCB design, comprising schematic capture, microcontroller simulation, and PCB layout.  With this latest update to Ultra Librarian, Proteus users will be able to export symbols and footprints in the Proteus format from UltraLibrarian.com or the Ultra Librarian desktop software.  Coinciding with the Ultra Librarian update, Labcenter is releasing Proteus version 8.8 that includes updates to their model import capability.  In this new version, models are checked for compatibility with Proteus during import with the results shown on the import log.  Also, large schematic parts can be split into multiple elements during the Proteus import process, and pins can also be rearranged in different positions around the component body.

“Our Proteus users often need the symbols, footprints, and 3D models for the constant flow of new silicon devices,” said Iain Cliffe, executive director at Labcenter Electronics Ltd. “Ultra Librarian’s rapid generation of library content should satisfy our users’ needs and also provide them with access to a huge repository of high quality CAD models.”

Julie Ellis: Communication and Fabrication Knowledge Critical for Designers

11/14/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Field Application Engineer Julie Ellis of TTM sees it all: good designs, bad designs, and everything in between. Her classes on proper DFM techniques are always a big draw. She taught at the inaugural AltiumLive in 2017 and was back at this year’s event. I caught up with Julie and asked her to discuss some of the things she covered in class. As she points out, many issues could be eliminated if designers communicated with their fabricators and had a better understanding of how PCBs are manufactured.

Max Seeley’s PCB Design Career is No Fish Story

11/14/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Max Seeley, senior electrical, PCB, and manufacturing engineer with 3M, was an instructor at the first AltiumLive event in 2017, and he made a return visit to this year’s event in San Diego. I asked Max why he decided to come back to AltiumLive this year and to share the story of his rather circuitous journey into PCB design, which included a turn as a custom aquarium builder. Everyone in PCB design has a different backstory.

Amway Sells Beauty Products—and Designs its Own PCBs

11/12/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During AltiumLive in San Diego, I met Dugan M. Karnazes, an associate electrical engineer and PCB designer at Amway. The company is famous for selling nutritional supplements and soap, but apparently Amway has been busy diversifying over the years. I was interested in finding out more about Amway’s electronics development. Dugan sat down with me to discuss his role at Amway, and how this company grew into an $8 billion global giant.
