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.”

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.
