Web-based library streamlines management of part data

EMA Design Automation released a library data management solution offering a tight integration with Cadence OrCAD Capture CIS and EMA EDABuilder for a comprehensive CIS management environment that includes distributor integration and a component library with a pre-defined set of fields.

The Component Information Portal (CIP) 5.0 is a web-based PCB library management solution with integration to component part supplier data from Digikey, Mouser, Farnell, Future, and Arrowallowing access within the CAD environment as well as from a web browser, and enabling design teams to leverage all of the advantages of a shared parts library without incurring the overhead and cost of configuring and managing the database directly.

The enhanced integration in CIP 5.0 adds the ability to preview part symbols from CIP and then place parts directly on the OrCAD Capture CIS schematic canvas. The integration with EDABuilder, meanwhile, helps automate the new part introduction flow. Designers can launch EDABuilder directly from CIP to quickly create OrCAD Capture CIS symbols for their new parts. Symbols created using this method are then automatically updated and associated with the correct parametric data in CIP.

Another new feature in the platform gives users the option to define BOM templates that can then be applied during BOM report generation. Templates can be fully customised including the definition of header sections, selecting which data to include, and defining how to format the data in the report. This gives engineering teams the ability to create ready-to-order "zero touch" BOMs with just a few clicks of the mouse.
