EMA Launches Ultra Librarian Reference Design Cloud

Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation announced the release of its Ultra Librarian Reference Design Cloud, giving engineers easy, web-based access to reference design schematics enabling faster design starts. The first set of reference designs is available for TRINAMIC Motion Control ICs. At the same time, schematic symbols, footprints, and 3D models for all Trinamic components have been released on EMA’s industry leading, manufacturer verified, EDA Model Cloud. “Working with Trinamic to provide reference design schematics and create their EDA models gives design engineers the highest quality EDA content possible,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA.  “In addition to our meticulous creation and rigorous testing techniques, every model is verified by the engineers at Trinamic to ensure that they work perfectly in more than 25 EDA output formats delivered by Ultra Librarian.”

Trinamic provides ICs and microsystems for embedded motor and motion control.  They are helping to enable the trend towards automating all aspects of the human environment that has resulted in an explosion in the deployment of controlled motion systems.  TRINAMIC Motion Control components are used in desktop manufacturing, healthcare devices, laboratory automation, surveillance cameras, robotics, the physical cloud, and anywhere else reliable positioning is required.

Engineers developing products requiring motion control can now easily specify Trinamic ICs in their designs, with access to schematic symbols, PCB footprints, 3D models and reference design schematics from the cloud. With the Ultra Librarian Reference Design Cloud, engineers can search and review reference designs online. If desired, they can even make changes and download a modified schematic in OrCAD. Reference designs can be exported to any of the supported EDA tool formats, including Altium, OrCAD, Eagle, Mentor PADS Logic, and Mentor DxDesigner, providing the fastest method of getting verified circuitry into a design. The Ultra Librarian Model Cloud allows design engineers to download schematic symbols, PCB footprints, and 3D models for all Trinamic components. Ultra Librarian is the industry’s most comprehensive, verified EDA model library providing free access to more than 15 million part numbers for download.

“Our technology makes it easy for people to add world-class motion control to their products,” said Jonas Proeger, marketing director at TRINAMIC Motion Control.  “With this new integration to Ultra Librarian, engineers have easy access to verified correct models and circuitry, making their job easier and reducing errors caused by manually creating part models and building support circuitry.”

New Designers Council Column: The Digital Layout

The IPC Designers Council is launching a new column in Design007 Magazine: “The Digital Layout.” I recently asked two IPC Designers Council (DC) Executive Board members, Mike Creeden and Stephen Chavez, to discuss the content and objective of their new column, and how this all ties in with the DC.

Design Data: File Naming Conventions

12/03/2018 | Kelly Dack, CID+, EPTAC
Working for an EMS provider, I am often asked to make sense of customers’ PCB design data packages that must be audited for completeness and manufacturability. Quite often, EMS operations receive data to produce a PCB design and begin the auditing process, only to be called off due to customer changes. Sometimes the data is incomplete, or it is missing one or more of the data files required to fabricate the PCB at the supplier. There are also occasions where a customer has sent files that were supposed to be the updated version but were not changed at all.

Stephen Chavez: Breaking the Design Data Bottleneck
