Digi-Key Offers Unlimited Access to Ultra Librarian EDA/CAD Models

8 MAY 2018

Digi-Key Electronics, a global electronic components distributor, announces unlimited access to Ultra Librarian symbols, footprints, and 3D STEP models from digikey.com.

“To better serve our customers we have worked with EMA to remove the download limits of Ultra Librarian EDA and CAD models,” said Randall Restle, VP, Applications Engineering at Digi-Key.  “We now have model coverage for over 1.25 million parts, meaning our customers will be able to download a very high percentage of the models they need for a design, saving a significant amount of time during the design cycle.”

Ultra Librarian offers models in over 20 EDA and CAD formats to cover the vast majority of the PCB design tools in use, including Altium, Eagle, KiCad, OrCAD, and PADS.  Models are created using the Ultra Librarian Desktop software, which uses a sophisticated combination of templates, pdf extraction, and verification algorithms to quickly capture all important component information required.  To ensure the highest accuracy, consistency, and adherence to IPC and other standards, models undergo more than 30 different verification checks, and many of the models are also verified by their respective device manufacturer.

“We want to help our customers get their designs done faster and with fewer design spins,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA Design Automation.  “Providing this improved access through Digi-Key gives our mutual customers an easy way to improve their design process.”
