EMA Design Automation, a full-service provider and innovator of electronic design automation (EDA) solutions, has created a website for Ultra Librarian.
The site, found at www.UltraLibrarian.com, provides 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 this site, engineers now have a centralized, online component repository for part search and model download,” says 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.
