Ultra Librarian to offer symbols for Digi-Key components

Digi-Key Electronics has reached a new milestone with Ultra Librarian, with the online library providing symbols, footprints, and 3D models for 1.25 million in-stock Digi-Key parts. The addition of more associated parts allows customers to easily design with most of Digi-Key's components in 22 CAD formats supporting most EDA and CAD toolsets.

Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA Design Automation says: "Digi-Key is a common source for many of our customers to purchase their parts. Our over eight-year partnership with Digi-Key to provide Ultra Librarian symbols, footprints, and 3D models gives our mutual customers direct access to library content that makes designing circuits faster, easier, and more precise."

Creating and maintaining a library as large as Ultra Librarian requires a team of PCB and software experts to understand the needs of design engineers and to create software that support the needs of both the library creation team and the end users. Frank Frank, product architect for Ultra Librarian says: "A big part of the job is creating the Ultra Librarian desktop software which is what we use to create the parts. We develop tools in the software to increase the speed of capturing part information and to validate the parts by performing over 30 different checks to ensure accuracy, consistency, and adherence to IPC standards."

Randall Restle, Vice President, Applications Engineering at Digi-Key says: "Digi-Key customers are always on the lookout for ways to reduce the design cycle, and with the larger library and sheer volume of parts available, they can get a jump-start on incorporating new parts into their designs for any application. Thanks to the great partnership we have with EMA, we are one step closer to meeting our goal of getting CAD models for all of the parts we offer so that our customers can focus on design and get their products to market faster."
