Ultra Librarian Partners with Maxim Integrated for Interactive Reference Designs


Reading time ( words)

Ultra Librarian, the world's largest free cloud-based CAD library provider, today announced its continuing partnership with Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. with the release of a new set of reference designs for use in the Ultra Librarian Reference Design Cloud.

Reference designs are a key tool to help engineers understand, qualify and successfully implement new components into their designs. To save time and reduce risk, engineers often end up using portions of the reference design circuitry in their design as these have already been tested and qualified by the component vendor. Unfortunately, most reference designs are only available in PDF or other static formats requiring engineers to re-create the designs in their CAD tools, wasting time and creating opportunities for error during transcription.

The Ultra Librarian Reference Design Cloud provides reference designs in an intelligent CAD format that can be immediately leveraged by engineers. Using the Ultra Librarian Reference Design Cloud, engineers can view and then access these designs in their native CAD formats including: Cadence OrCAD, Allegro, Altium, Eagle, KiCAD, and Mentor as well as others.

“Our engineering team spends a lot of time and energy developing and verifying our reference designs,” said Anders Reisch, managing director, Training & Technical Services at Maxim Integrated. “This partnership with Ultra Librarian allows us to enable our customers to take full advantage of this valuable design resource to help them speed their path to production with Maxim devices. We look forward to seeing more customer adoption after this pilot phase.”

The Ultra Librarian Reference Design Cloud is built using OrCAD Capture Cloud technology from Cadence Design Systems, providing a robust, user friendly and familiar cloud environment to view and download reference design content.

Maxim Integrated interactive reference designs are available now at https://www.maximintegrated.com/en/products/power/power-reference-designs-ecad.html.

This Month in Design007 Magazine: Thermal Fundamentals With Mike Jouppi

09/09/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 team recently interviewed Mike Jouppi, one of the champions of thermal management in PCBs. Mike spent decades working on updating the old IPC current-carrying data, which dated back to the 1950s, and he is the primary architect behind IPC-2152— the standard for determining current-carrying capacity in printed board design. As Mike explained in this wide-ranging interview, even if you’re using the latest thermal design software, you still need to have a firm understanding of the fundamentals.

Letter to the Editor: Rick Hartley Offers Addendum on App Notes

06/11/2020 | Rick Hartley, RHartley Enterprises
In the June 2020 issue of Design007 Magazine, the I-Connect007 editorial team interviewed design instructors Rick Hartley and Dan Beeker regarding their belief that designers should not trust app notes until they've been proven to be accurate. After the issue was published this week, Rick emailed us with a few more points that he wished to contribute to the ongoing app note conversation.

The Formation of the Printed Circuit Engineering Association

04/02/2020 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
Patty Goldman spoke with Gary Ferrari, FTG Corporation, at IPC APEX EXPO 2020 about the formation of the Printed Circuit Engineering Association, which—having been started two months ago—has attained lots of interest from the industry. The PCEA hopes to bring together designers, engineers, fabricators, assemblers through local chapters to focus mainly on education and learning.
