Rochester, NY (May 2, 2017) – EMA Design Automation® (www.ema-eda.com), a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, has created a website for Ultra Librarian®, www.UltraLibrarian.com, giving electronics designers online access to pre-authored and verified parts with pricing and technical information to help them choose the best electronics components for their designs and the ability to download symbols, footprints, and 3D models. “With the creation of UltraLibrarian.com, engineers now have a centralized, online component repository for part search and model download,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “This reduces potential errors and speeds up the design process by minimizing the time designers spend searching for and creating library content, giving them more time to create outstanding designs.”
The new Ultra Librarian website allows users to search through over 40 million components to compare pricing, availability, and technical information in order to find the perfect parts for the design. The site allows searching by part number, partial part number, or keyword. Non-specific searches often return tens of thousands of results, so users can narrow their search by category, compliance, distributor, or manufacturer. The resulting part list includes links to a detail page, the manufacturer, and the datasheet for final selection. Once the appropriate part is selected, the user can switch to the model page to download a symbol, footprint, and 3D STEP model for the part, if they exist.
The cloud-based Ultra Librarian model library currently has coverage for over 9 million parts. Many of these parts were created through relationships with the part manufacturers covering the latest and most widely used components. All website users have access to the full library where they can search for a part, preview the symbol, footprint, and 3D model, and then download one or all of them for the design tools of their choice. Ultra Librarian supports 22 of the most widely used EDA tools, and all popular MCAD tools support the STEP format, making UltraLibrarian.com useful to almost every electronics designer.
All part pricing information is available for free. Up to 30 model downloads per month are also free, and each download can include a symbol, a footprint, and a 3D model allowing up to 90 ECAD/MCAD models free per month. Subscriptions are also available allowing for more model downloads.
