Ultra Librarian Announces UltraBOM® for Digi-Key, Enabling Part Research Within OrCAD Capture

Rochester, NY (March 11, 2020) – Ultra Librarian®, the world’s largest free cloud-based CAD library provider, today announced UltraBOM®, 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, DigiKey. “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.”

EMA Launches Ultra Librarian Model Cloud on Maxim Integrated’s Website

EMA Design Automation, a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, today announced the launch of the Ultra Librarian Model Cloud on the Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) website covering nearly 100% of their parts.   

“This new interface allows Maxim customers to view the details of Maxim’s ECAD and MCAD models so they can visually configure and verify the models prior to download,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA.  “This adds another level of confidence for engineers when downloading content to complete their electronic designs.” 
 
A primary step in creating the electronic design necessary for these solutions is to create or download the symbols, footprints, and 3D models required by the ECAD and MCAD toolsets used by design engineers.  The addition of the Ultra Librarian Model Cloud download capability to Maxim’s website combines part research with CAD model download.  When a user finds a part for their design, they can examine each of the models in different views and detail levels to confirm their part choice.  They can then choose from 29 different CAD formats (including Altium, OrCAD, and SOLIDWORKS), specify preferences on the generated models, and download the ECAD and MCAD models in a seamless online experience. 

The models Maxim provides on its website are part of an ongoing collaboration with Ultra Librarian.  The Ultra Librarian team recently created over 7,000 additional part models, verified by both Ultra Librarian and Maxim engineers, bringing the total count to over 85,000 Maxim products.  This gives Maxim nearly 100% model coverage for their entire product line.  As Maxim creates new products, the Ultra Librarian team will add models into the Ultra Librarian database so Maxim customers can access them from their CAD tool of choice.  

“We’re solving engineering problems and empowering design innovation with our advanced and high-performance products,” said Anders Reisch, managing director, Training and Technical Services at Maxim Integrated.  “By providing Ultra Librarian models for our electronic components directly from our website, we make using Maxim products that much faster and easier.”

TARGET 3001! Users Now Have Access to Ultra Librarian – The World’s Largest CAD Part Database

EMA Design Automation® (www.ema-eda.com), a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, today announced that its Ultra Librarian 14 million electronic part library of symbols, footprints, and 3D models is now available to PCB designers using the TARGET 3001! design suite.  “TARGET 3001! users can now download verified models from Ultra Librarian, saving them time and eliminating errors that can occur when manually building part models,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA.  “This is especially true with more complex components, large components, or components that use non-typical pin patterns.” 

The TARGET 3001! design suite combines schematic capture, simulation, PCB layout, auto routing, 3D view, and front panel design.  PCB projects can be designed on boards or on 3D bodies (MID), a technique not common in the industry, and this is supported by a single user interface for all features.  A complete TARGET 3001! project is all stored in a single file containing all needed information.  With Ultra Librarian, manufacturer part numbers or distributor order numbers are shown on the Bill of Materials (BoM).  Subsequent processes of manufacturing, assembly, or documentation/information are eased significantly, and the calculation of board production cost and the ordering with PCB houses are both simple processes and time efficient. 

“It is of utmost importance to our TARGET 3001! users that they can rely on the accuracy of the parts they build into their designs,” said Harald Friedrich, CEO and owner of TARGET 3001!.  “Ultra Librarian’s models are created based on IPC and manufacturers’ specifications and go through more than 30 checks during creation by the Ultra Librarian team and/or component manufacturers.  The Ultra Librarian verified 3D models are more accurate than generic 3D models, which is very important especially when designing products with tight space requirements.”
