EMA Launches Ultra Librarian Model Cloud on Maxim Integrated's Website


Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation has announced the launch of the Ultra Librarian Model Cloud on the Maxim Integrated Products website covering nearly 100% of their parts.

 “This new interface allows Maxim customers to view the details of Maxim’s ECAD and MCAD models so they can visually configure and verify the models prior to download,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “This adds another level of confidence for engineers when downloading content to complete their electronic designs.”

A primary step in creating the electronic design necessary for these solutions is to create or download the symbols, footprints, and 3D models required by the ECAD and MCAD toolsets used by design engineers. The addition of the Ultra Librarian Model Cloud download capability to Maxim’s website combines part research with CAD model download. When a user finds a part for their design, they can examine each of the models in different views and detail levels to confirm their part choice. They can then choose from 29 different CAD formats (including Altium, OrCAD, and SOLIDWORKS), specify preferences on the generated models, and download the ECAD and MCAD models in a seamless online experience.

The models Maxim provides on its website are part of an ongoing collaboration with Ultra Librarian. The Ultra Librarian team recently created over 7,000 additional part models, verified by both Ultra Librarian and Maxim engineers, bringing the total count to over 85,000 Maxim products. This gives Maxim nearly 100% model coverage for their entire product line. As Maxim creates new products, the Ultra Librarian team will add models into the Ultra Librarian database so Maxim customers can access them from their CAD tool of choice.

“We're solving engineering problems and empowering design innovation with our advanced and high-performance products,” said Anders Reisch, managing director, Training and Technical Services at Maxim Integrated. “By providing Ultra Librarian models for our electronic components directly from our website, we make using Maxim products that much faster and easier.”

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

01/20/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
We’re in the middle of show season, and it certainly “shows.” Thank you very much. I’m here all week. Don’t forget to tip your wait staff. This week, we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items, and much of it centered on trade shows. Technical Editor Dan Feinberg brings us a report from CES 2023. IPC announced the winners of the Best Technical Paper awards for IPC APEX EXPO 2023. And we have an interview with Altium’s Rea Callender about the company’s educational efforts at APEX and around the globe.

Altium Focuses on Design Education

01/16/2023 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Altium keeps its eyes on the designers of the future. The company has been working with colleges and universities for years, providing free seats of Altium Designer for the next generation of PCB designers and design engineers. At IPC APEX EXPO 2023, Altium will be providing software for the finalists in the IPC Design Competition just as it did last year. They offer a variety of other educational programs as well, including Upverter classes and a design competition that aims to address environmental change. Here, Rea Callender, Altium’s VP of education, discusses its educational programs and plans for the week of the show.

The Battle of the Boards

01/12/2023 | Patrick Crawford, IPC
Last year, IPC held its first-ever design competition at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego. PCB designers from around the world competed in a series of heats during the months before the show, culminating in a showdown on the show floor between the top three finalists. Rafal Przeslawski, now with AMD, took home the top prize last year. This year, the competition is back for its sophomore year. I asked Patrick Crawford, manager of design standards and related programs for IPC, to “layout” the details on the design contest, including lessons learned in 2022 and what’s new for the 2023 competition.
