EMA Design Automation® (ema-eda.com), a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, has just announced the acquisition of Accelerated Designs, a company known for its dominance in EDA part library content and solutions including a 7.2-million-part database and its specialist library tool Ultra Librarian. “One of the many challenges an electrical engineer faces during the design phase is getting accurate and usable symbols and footprints,” said Manny Marcano, president of EMA Design Automation. “Accelerated Designs’ library is the world’s largest library for EDA symbols and footprints, offering over 7.2 million quality parts to choose from. Additionally, Accelerated Designs offers services to enable any IC vendor to quickly and easily create the EDA library content its customers need when choosing their components.”

Today, EMA Design Automation announced the recent acquisition of Accelerated Designs, a company known for its dominance in EDA part library content and solutions, including a 7.2 million-part database and its specialist library tool, Ultra Librarian. In addition to the existing library of parts, Accelerated Designs’ Ultra Librarian tool speeds the creation of EDA content for new components. The tool uses the concept of templates to create parts, which increases accuracy, speed, and consistency of part creation and allows global changes to be made to a library. This will help to address one of the most common design challenges electrical engineers face during the design phase: getting accurate and usable symbols and footprints. Automation is the key component to the Ultra Librarian tool, allowing a user to build their component accurately one time and then export it to the CAD tool(s) of their choice.

Engineers are responsible for many of the great inventions and technology the world depends on today. Everything from space shuttles to air conditioning systems to hearing aids requires the work of an engineer. To be successful in the field of engineering, it is essential to have certain qualities. In order to discover what sets certain engineers apart from the rest, we asked our engineering team to list some of the top habits they see in successful engineers. Below are the top 7 common themes we heard:

Your choice of a PCB design solution will have a lasting impact on your productivity as well as the company’s bottom line. Simply put, you need the proper tools to get the job done right. This is why it’s important to review certain criteria when it comes to evaluating—and ultimately purchasing—a PCB design solution. This ensures the software you pick will fit not only your current needs, but your future needs as well. Too often, PCB CAD evaluations turn into feature wars—engineers get caught up in the specific clicks and functions against all considered solutions. While features are important, have you really ever stopped to take into account other items not directly related to features? These can be important differentiators when it comes to finalizing purchase decisions. Often overlooked, the 5 items below can help you make the most informed purchasing decision—saving you time, money, and resources both at the time of purchase and in the future.

Ideally what engineers want is a blend of virtual and physical prototyping—something possible in PSpice. Since many IoT innovators use inexpensive development boards to develop their idea, I thought it would be instructive to show how one can develop new hardware in OrCAD® and PSpice, then integrate the simulation with real sensors driven by an Arduino board.
