EMA Expands Ultra Librarian Library with Complete Set of Power Integrations EDA and MCAD Models

Rochester, NY (August 1, 2018) – EMA Design Automation® (www.ema-eda.com), a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, today announced the availability of symbols, footprints, and 3D models for all Power Integrations components, which anyone can access for free from ultralibrarian.compower.com, and digikey.com.  “With this new set of models, engineers can simply download the library components they need for their Power Integrations based designs,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA.  “Having access to these verified models saves engineering time and eliminates mistakes that can occur when manually building part models.”

Power Integrations’ high-performance electronic components are important to engineers designing high-voltage power-conversion systems.  These integrated circuits and diodes enable compact, energy-efficient AC-DC power supplies for a wide range of electronic products including mobile devices, televisions, computers, appliances and smart utility meters.

“We chose to provide Ultra Librarian based models for Power Integrations components because we wanted the highest quality design models possible, and we wanted it freely available to the widest audience,” said David Chen, director of applications engineering for Power Integrations.  “Giving our customers the ability to download design-ready, verified models allows them to easily and correctly create designs using our high-performance electronic components.”

All of the models are created based on Power Integrations specifications, and the symbols, footprints, and 3D models are built to function correctly together.  All features such as matching pin names and numbers, accurate cross-probing between symbols and footprints, and 3D models are precisely aligned with the footprints.  The models go through more than 30 checks during creation by the Ultra Librarian team and are then verified by Power Integrations engineers.  The Ultra Librarian 3D models are more accurate than generic 3D models, which can be important when there are tight space requirements.  The Power Integrations models are downloadable in over 20 CAD formats, making them available for almost all EDA and CAD design tools.

“When we created these models, we found some uncommon pin configurations on certain Power Integrations packages, such as connected pins, or a series of missing pins, that took a little time and effort to get right,” said Frank Frank, product architect for Ultra Librarian.  “Working through these special cases would take a designer extra time, especially if they needed to create a 3D model. Ultra Librarian users not only save time by downloading one of these Power Integrations parts, but they also get our expertise built into the model assuring it will work correctly for their application.”
