Available from digikey.com the design bundle provides the tools, data, and models needed to ensure first pass design success including:
- OrCAD Capture, the industry-standard schematic design solution
- In-design ability to search and select parts from Digi-Key
- Searchable cloud library of schematic symbols connected to Digi-Key parametric data
- Integrated sourcing tools to procure parts quickly and easily from Digi-Key
- OrCAD e-Learning, including certification opportunities.
This collaboration looks to increase the efficiency of engineers by providing them with the tools they need to streamline the design process. As a result, engineers will be able to focus on design, eliminate tedious tasks, quickly innovate, and keep the design process moving forward, all within a single unified design environment.
“We have always been focused on improving the engineer's workflow and providing them access to the data they need as they are making important design decisions,” said Manny Marcano, President and CEO of EMA Design Automation. “This announcement is an extension of our longstanding collaboration with Digi-key to enable engineers with best-in-class design methodologies and data.”
With the current uncertainty in the global electronics supply chain, it is more critical than ever that engineers have access to the information they need to make informed part decisions. By connecting the vast Digi-Key database of part parametric information with the industry standard in PCB schematic design, engineers will have access to an integrated “supply chain ready” path that will enable them to create manufacturable designs quickly and accurately.
“Part availability and lead time are a huge concern for companies around the world,” said Travis Foss, Product Manager, Semiconductors, at Digi-Key Electronics. “Enabling engineers to have a view into this data right at product conception gives design teams the foresight they need to make the right choices and go to production with confidence.”
