EMA Provides Free Access to Ultra Librarian–the World’s Largest Library of Verified EDA Symbols, Footprints, and 3D Models

Rochester, NY (March 14, 2018) – EMA Design Automation® (www.ema-eda.com), a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, today announced 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 www.ultralibrarian.com .  “Today’s engineers don’t have the time or the desire to do the tedious work of creating library parts,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA.  “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.  “Many electrical engineers and PCB designers do not have the tools or the mechanical expertise to create 3D models,” said Marcano.  “Their primary focus is the electrical side of the problem, so being able to download a 3D model together with the symbol and footprint saves a lot of time and eliminates many errors.  Ultra Librarian 3D component models are available in STEP format providing superior compatibility with virtually all 3D CAD systems, including SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor.”

“By removing the barrier of cost, we’re making EDA library components far more accessible, allowing every designer to create designs faster and with fewer errors,” added Marcano.  “This is just the next step in our quest for us to build the ‘Gold Standard’ of EDA libraries.”
