Ultra Librarian and RS Components partner to incorporate a CAD component library into DesignSpark

Millions of free 3D CAD models now available through Ultra Librarian Parts Finder on DesignSpark

Rochester, NY and London, UK, (February 15, 2022)—Ultra Librarian®, (ultralibrarian.com) the world’s largest CAD library provider, and RS Components (RS), a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global omni-channel provider of product and service solutions, have teamed up to integrate the Ultra Librarian CAD models library directly into RS’s DesignSpark online platform.

DesignSpark members can now access the Ultra Librarian Parts Finder to access millions of free 3D models, significantly reducing PCB design cycle times.

RS’s award winning DesignSpark platform is a suite of free-to-use rapid PCB prototyping tools offering schematics unlimited in number and size, unlimited layers, nodes, pads and connections, integration with RS parts libraries, a library editor to create custom libraries, and integration with free DesignSpark mechanical and electrical CAD systems.

CAD models through Ultra Librarian can be accessed by entering a known part number or one or more keywords. CAD models can be viewed then downloaded for free, and then imported directly into DesignSpark or any other major PCB CAD tool.

“Part selection and design-in can be major bottlenecks in the electronic design process, because engineers have to source digital models for each component,” said Carol North, Senior Digital Development Manager at RS Components. “Our new partnership with Ultra Librarian solves this problem by adding free, drop-in CAD models via the DesignSpark platform.”

“Partnering with DesignSpark is giving engineers the ability to have a full circle experience of tools to simplify and advance their design process,” said Frank Frank, Founder and Product Architect at Ultra Librarian. “With tools to help from conception to prototyping, this partnership is a powerhouse of resources for PCB designers.”

What is “real-time control” and why do you need it?

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Real-time control is the ability of a closed-loop system to gather data, process that data and update the system within a defined time window. If the system misses that defined window, its stability, precision and efficiency will degrade. Diminished control can be detrimental to system performance; for example, not achieving the necessary speeds or even overheating. This article will explain the functional blocks of a real-time control system and provide an example of a robotics application.

224 Gbps Data Rates: Separating Fact from Fiction

Sponsored by Samtec

Data rates are getting faster with each passing year. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Matthew Burns from Samtec to separate fact from fiction when it comes to 224 Gbps data rates. They take a closer look at the design challenges, the tradeoffs, and architectural decisions that we will need to consider when designing a 224 Gbps design. They also investigate the variety of interconnect solutions that Samtec offers for your next 224 Gbps design.
