Ultra Librarian Adds STMicroelectronics Reference Designs in Cadence System Design Formats


Reading time ( words)

Ultra Librarian, the world's largest free cloud-based CAD library provider, has announced the addition of 25 authorized STMicroelectronics interactive reference designs in Cadence system design formats, now available for download via Ultra Librarian. “These authorized reference designs from ST in Cadence system design formats, combined with CAD models from Ultra Librarian, jumpstart the design process,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “This eliminates the tremendous number of hours typically spent recreating a design from a PDF and sourcing relevant parts.” 

Reference designs provide engineers with a valuable tool allowing them to see parts in action, which accelerates the design process and brings ideas to life faster. These designs have been built, tested, and authorized by the manufacturers and verified by Ultra Librarian to ensure accuracy of the design and associated models. Each download comes with a complete Bill of Materials ready for purchasing.

“Delivering reference designs in Cadence Allegro and OrCAD formats eliminates the need to manually recreate design artifacts from reference documents, accelerating design creation across the system designer ecosystem,” said Saugat Sen, vice president of R&D in the Custom IC & PCB Group at Cadence. “With reference designs available on Ultra Librarian, designs can be downloaded in Cadence system design formats along with all associated CAD models.” 

“ST has teams of engineers focused on developing tools, reference designs, and evaluation boards to kick start customers' system design,” said Alessandro Cremonesi, chief innovation officer and SRA group general manager at STMicroelectronics. “The full range of cooperation arrangements we've made, with companies like Ultra Librarian, are geared to ease and accelerate product development to shrink customer time-to-market across a broad range of applications for an even quicker and more seamless route to sales.”

The 25 reference designs from ST include a complete solution for three-phase AC/DC and DC/AC applications. These designs are based on a digital platform optimized for power conversion, a wireless multi-sensor-node development kit and reference design for Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications, and a high-current inverter for automotive 3-phase BLDC motor-control applications.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.

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.

Barry Olney’s High-Speed Simulation Primer

04/09/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
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.
