Waldenburg, Germany & Bristol,UK --- Würth Elektronik eiSos, a manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components and Zuken, a leader in PCB and IC package design, announce the launch of new component libraries for CADSTAR.
Würth Elektronik eiSos will now provide free-of-charge component libraries of its passive components for Zuken’s CADSTAR design software. The libraries allow users to simply download the correct components and start designing, without needing to worry about creating the right footprint or mechanical dimensions. These details, as well as the electrical parameters, are defined within the libraries, which are updated regularly.
Starting with passive components, Würth Elektronik eiSos already plans to expand the library to include semiconductors, optoelectronics and electromechanical components.
The libraries build on an existing partnership with Würth Elektronik’s PCB division, through which Würth Elektronik’s design rules and layer structures are incorporated into CADSTAR as free templates which can be applied during the layout process.
The new libraries are available free at http://www.we-online.com/cadstar
