Sourcengine, a global electronic components marketplace, announces it has reached a new milestone with Ultra Librarian – the on-line library providing symbols, footprints, and 3D models for engineering designs. The partnership allows customers to easily design with most of Sourcengine’s components in Cadence OrCAD. Engineers can now access over 500 million components and shop for them without ever having to leave Ultra Librarian design website.
“The Sourceability Companies is proud to be working with Ultra Librarian, provider of the world’s largest PCB CAD library. This partnership allows us to offer a new, superior level of technical and e-commerce support to our customers, “states Joe Toth, Sourceability’s Vice President of Field Applications and Engineering
How to Integrate Sourcengine Marketplace into Ultra Librarian’s Design Platform on Cadence OrCAD?
If you do not have the Cadence OrCAD tools and would like to download a demo or evaluation copy, please visit OrCAD.
You will need to download Sourcengine plug-in within your OrCAD environment
- Once you submit the API plug-in request, you will receive an email from our team with your API key for the Sourcengine plug-in.
- Under “Distributor” menu in OrCAD find Sourcengine and insert your API key and Ultra Librarian's login credentials in order to receive access to their design models. This is FREE. No need to pay the subscription fees.
At this point, your OrCAD application can communicate with Sourcengine’s catalog. Now, you can see price and availability data for your design directly from Sourcengine’s catalog if the parts exist in UL’s library.
In order to test this integration, please open an existing design in OrCAD or start building a new design by searching forparts one at a time on the search tab of Sourcengine plug in inside orCAD. Todo so, please see an example below:
- Go to design tab of the Sourcengine plug-in.You will be able to see if there are any availabilities for the parts in your design.
- Additionally, you have an option to buy the offers you see within OrCAD’s Sourcengine plug-in, by clicking on “Store” button available in each line of your design. That button will take you to Sourcengine’s e-commerce website where you can see the details about the selected part (the number of sellers, parametric data, data sheets, prices and availabilities). By installing the Sourcengine plug-in into your account, you immediately receive an access to over 500 million components from 2,000 global sellers who offer their stocked products on Sourcengine.
Both Ultra Librarian and Sourcengine customers are always on the lookout for ways to reduce the design cycle, and with the larger library and volume of parts available for immediate purchase, design engineers can get a jump-start on incorporating new parts into their designs for any application.
What if Our Organization Needs Technical and Design-In Support Post the Design Stage?
In addition to the web integration with Ultra Librarian within your orCAD platform, Sourceability’s field applications team led by Joe Toth is always ready to assist our customers by providing all the technical and design support to our customers. To contact us for more technical information please send us a message and one of our technical engineers will respond to you shortly.
