EMA Design Automation announces that access for its more than 14-million component library is now free, allowing downloads from the world’s largest collection of verified symbols, footprints, and 3D STEP models through its Ultra Librarian. EMA CEO Manny Marcano says, “Today’s engineers don’t have the time or the desire to do the tedious work of creating library parts. By providing free access to the world’s largest library of verified EDA component models, we can help them maintain focus on their primary task of designing circuits.”
Ultra Librarian contains symbols, footprints, and 3D models for over 14 million electronic components, making it the largest EDA model library in the world. Working closely with component manufacturers, EMA has doubled the size of the library from seven million to over 14 million parts in less than two years. The Ultra Librarian team can achieve this rate of growth by 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 necessary to create the unique library components required for over 20 CAD model formats, including Altium, Eagle, KiCad, OrCAD, and PADS. To ensure the highest accuracy, consistency, and adherence to IPC standards, models undergo more than 30 different verification checks.
Ultra Librarian also helps with the mechanical side of PCB design by offering 3D STEP models for the vast majority of the parts in the library. For access, go to the Ultra Librarian and/or call 585-334-6001. For more information, visit EMA Design Automation.
