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.”

Bridging the Simulation Tool Divide

04/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Todd Westerhoff of Siemens EDA recently spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team about the divide between users of high-powered enterprise simulation tools and those who need a more practical tool for everyday use, and how Siemens is working to bridge the gap. Todd also shared his views on why so many engineers do not use simulation, as well as advice for engineers just getting started with simulation tools.

The I-Connect007 editorial team recently spoke with Barry Olney of iCD about simulation. Barry, a columnist for Design007 Magazine, explains why simulation tools can have such a steep learning curve, and why many design engineers are still not using simulation on complex high-speed designs.

Eliminating ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out’ With Checks and Balances

03/26/2021 | Nick Barbin, Optimum Design Associates
The proverbial saying “garbage in, garbage out” holds true in the electronic product development world. PCB designers stand squarely in the middle of a busy information intersection flowing with inputs and outputs. Missing or bad information at the beginning of a design project will undoubtedly lead to board re-spins, increased costs, and most importantly, a delayed product release. The same can be said about the PCB designer who doesn’t provide a fully checked and comprehensive data package to the downstream manufacturers, i.e., “throwing it over the fence.”
