Ultra Librarian Desktop Software Gets Advanced PDF Scraping Capabilities From Existing EMA Technologies

The Ultra Librarian library increases to over 12 million parts!

Rochester, NY (July 18, 2017) – EMA Design Automation® (www.ema-eda.com), a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, today announced the release of Ultra Librarian® desktop software version 8.2 and an expanded library giving designers access to symbols, footprints, and 3D models for over 12 million parts. “This is the first collaborative development effort for the Ultra Librarian desktop software since EMA acquired Accelerated Designs,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “This allowed us to very quickly enhance the software to give our customers faster part creation and higher fidelity output with a significant reduction in download size.”

The latest release of the desktop software uses innovative techniques to extract datasheet information into the part building process. Users can load the datasheet into the Ultra Librarian desktop software, extract the information they need to create the part, and copy it directly into the software. One such function allows a user to select a pin list table from the PDF and copy the contents into the symbol creation software. Another allows overlaying the datasheet image of a footprint on top of the software created footprint as an added quality assurance step. These types of copy/paste operations speed creation of symbols and footprints providing unparalleled accuracy of component creation based on manufacturer data. “Accuracy of data collection is always a critical facet of creating parts, but has historically been prone to error since the data is often manually entered,” said Marcano. “These new techniques allow a user to quickly specify the data required and get the information into the software correctly.”

The internal library team is also a user of the Ultra Librarian desktop software, and this new capability has helped them create parts at a faster-than-ever rate, bringing the library size to over twelve million parts. This addition of several million parts includes some of the latest parts from companies like Analog Devices, AVX, Cypress, Freescale, Infineon, Linear Technology, Samtec, Samsung, Texas Instruments, Vishay, and more.
