Würth and Zuken launch CADSTAR Component Libraries
Würth Elektronik eiSos and Zuken announce the launch of new component libraries for CADSTAR. Würth Elektronik eiSos will now provide free-of-charge component libraries of its passive components for Zuken's CADSTAR design software. The libraries allow users to simply download the correct components and start designing, without needing to worry about creating the right footprint or mechanical dimensions.
These details, as well as the electrical parameters, are defined within the libraries, which are updated regularly. Starting with passive components, WÃ¼rth Elektronik eiSos already plans to expand the library to include semiconductors, optoelectronics and electromechanical components.
Jochen Baier, Technical Marketing Manager at WÃ¼rth Elektronik eiSos said: â€œWÃ¼rth Elektronik places great importance on high quality component libraries, to simplify and speed-up the design process for our customers.â€
Jeroen Leinders, CADSTAR Distribution Manager at Zuken, said: â€œCADSTAR users now enjoy shorter implementation design time thanks to WÃ¼rth component libraries in CADSTAR. With the need to keep up with ever-reducing design cycle times, the libraries reduce the time engineers must spend creating PCB footprints and schematic symbols.â€
The libraries build on an existing partnership with WÃ¼rth Elektronikâ€™s PCB division, through which WÃ¼rth Elektronikâ€™s design rules and layer structures are incorporated into CADSTAR as free templates which can be applied during the layout process.
