Ultra Librarian Announces UltraBOM for Digi-Key


Reading time ( words)

Ultra Librarian®, the world's largest free cloud-based CAD library provider, today announced UltaBOM™, enabling design engineers to search and research Digi-Key Electronics parts within OrCAD® Capture, and then submit BOM parts directly to Digi-Key for purchase.

“The entire Bill of Materials (BOM) or a selection can be ordered directly from Digi-Key with a single click of a button,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “Errors and recommendations are reported for review, and all components are added to the cart in the correct quantities. This also eliminates the manual entry of parametric data into the schematic, reduces errors when ordering parts, and saves time on monotonous tasks, allowing engineers to focus on their designs.”

 UltraBOM for Digi-Key allows engineers to search distributor part information and review component parameters such as status, component availability, lead-times, and cost without leaving OrCAD Capture. Access to this data helps engineers select known high-quality orderable parts upfront. This distributor-driven design data is very important for quick-turn or rapid prototyping as engineers are able to gain fast access to the parts they need and keep the design and prototyping process moving forward.

Live parametric information can also easily be linked to existing parts. If the library part has not yet been created, then the user can instantly download the schematic symbol with linked footprints and Digi-Key supplier data from Ultra Librarian. Part information, availability, and status can be monitored and reviewed throughout the design with a fully customizable BOM. There is no need to spend hours verifying every component in the design or finding replacement components. Issue are flagged in real-time and resolved quickly without needing to leave the engineering design environment.

“Because of the tremendous workloads and shortened project timelines design teams face, managers are always interested in streamlining and increasing efficiency by reducing tedious tasks for their engineers,” added Marcano. “Designers need tools like UltraBOM that automate manual tasks and enable them to be successful when faced with these challenges.”

“We are thrilled with the addition of UltraBOM to Digi-Key's suite of free tools and resources for our customers,” said Jeremy Purcell, senior digital product owner, Digi-Key. “We are constantly looking for ways to improve our customers' experience and partnering with Ultra Librarian connects both new and seasoned customers with an easy method for part purchasing and BOM creation.”

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.

Cutting Respins: Journey to the Single-spin PCB

01/07/2021 | Chris Young, The Goebel Company
PCB design is more than a short sprint to the finish line; it is a journey best suited for the prepared adventurer. According to a study by Lifecycle Insights, the average PCB design project requires 2.9 respins. These respins can cost anywhere from tens of thousands to millions of dollars—each! As an engineer/business owner, I find respins frustrating because I would rather spend my time and money applying scientific principles inventing, improving technology, and solving problems. I am not an advocate for perfectionism, but rather I focus on becoming a better adventurer. Sometimes I get to taste the sweet wine that is a single spin PCB. As fellow adventurers, let’s discuss some topics that influence unnecessary return trips on our PCB design journey: simulation, technical reviews, and interest in PCB design.
