Silicon Laboratories Inc., provider of high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, has proudly introduced a web-based library of schematic symbols and printed-circuit board (PCB) footprints to help developers designing with Silicon Labs? embedded mixed-signal products streamline application development and speed-up time to market. The online symbol library supports Silicon Labs? latest microcontrollers (MCUs) including the Si10xx wireless MCU family, ultra-low-power F99x/F98x devices and capacitive touch-sense MCUs; USB, Ethernet and LCD interface products; and the Si1102/20 proximity and ambient light sensors.

Silicon Labs? schematic symbols and PCB footprints are available for download in a vendor-neutral format which can be exported to leading computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools using the complimentary Ultra Librarian reader from Accelerated Designs, Inc. Developers can download the reader software to view .bxl symbol and footprint files and generate components and their attributes in virtually any electronic design automation (EDA) CAD/CAE format. Silicon Labs? standard footprints generated by the reader are based on the IPC-7351 specification.

The Ultra Librarian Reader and Silicon Labs? symbols and footprints are available for free download at the Silicon Labs website. Alternatively, an enhanced version of the Ultra Librarian software, is available for purchase from Accelerated Designs. The enhanced version enables software models to be modified and auto-generated to meet any user-defined requirement.
