SamacSys and EasyPC Announce Partnership

Category:3D models,Component Search Engine,PCB Footprints,PCB Libraries,Symbols,Uncategorised

SamacSys and EasyPC have today announced the integration of the SamacSys Component Search Engine in to the V22 release of Easy PC enabling users to have access to the vast database of component PCB footprints, symbols & 3D Models.

As well as providing its EasyPC users with access to over 14 million components, Component Search Engine provides Easy PC users with many other benefits:

  • The ability to drag and drop PCB footprints and symbols directly in to their EasyPC design
  • Manufacturer values added to components; values such as part number and price are added to the component within EasyPC upon download.
  • Live pricing and stock can be checked from leading suppliers such as RS, Mouser, Farnell & Digikey. Everything an Electronics Engineer would want in one place!
  • Up to date and accurate datasheets.

Within the industry, engineers face many challenges. One of the largest is the amount of time that is wasted on things that aren’t actually key to them completing the design on time. How much time do you spend (waste) completing mundane tasks? Not sure what I mean by mundane tasks? How about these things:

  • Trying to find the correct datasheets for the components you are considering for your design.
  • Creating component footprints and symbols
  • Correcting issues caused by human error
  • Phoning suppliers to compare prices and to find out stock levels

As well as 15 million+ components, we host many millions of datasheets, so you can save a lot of time by using Component Search Engine for your datasheet needs.

Whilst there are a vast number of component footprints and symbols already in our database (ready for immediate, free download), you’ve come across a part that you need that isn’t in the database. Worry not, simply request the part you require, and you’ll be notified in super quick time when your part is ready. In over 90% of cases, the footprint and symbol will be created within 24 hours.

The quality of the footprints and symbols from SamacSys is very high, with numerous checks in place to make sure you get the models you need, exactly as you need them. Have you ever downloaded a TO-220 symbol to find it is a generic file which assumes you’re happy “making do”? We build our footprints using individual manufacturer data, so you can be sure that the footprint you receive is for the part you are designing in.

SamacSys is the leading developer of software tools for creating and managing electronic component ECAD data. We have hundreds of thousands of repeat users, spread across over 180 countries. By partnering with EasyPC we give their users all of our industry leading solutions, within a high quality EDA package; meaning you get your design to the prototyping stage quicker.

SamacSys adds Altium Circuit Studio to supported CAD tools

Category:3D models,Component Search Engine,PCB Footprints,PCB Libraries Tags : 

SamacSys has expanded its integration with Altium by supporting its newest design tool, Circuit Studio.

Whilst Circuit Studio users get access to Altiums comprehensive parts library, this integration means that users can import the millions of SamacSys libraries in to Circuit Studio too. Not only does this give Circuit Studio users access to millions of free, ready to download PCB footprints and symbols, but also 3D models that perfectly align with the footprint.

What about models for newly released components? Simply search for the part you require at www.componentsearchengine.com and request we build it. Not only will we usually build it within 24 hours, this service is also completely FREE. Once built, you’ll be able to import it straight in to Circuit Studio. High quality, fast and free – straight in to your favourite CAD tool.

Here at SamacSys, we’re passionate about solving all of the big PCB library problems for engineers across the world, saving them time, money and hassle.

About Altium Circuit Studio

Altium has a rich history starting out in 1985 as one of the first providers of PCB design tools and over time developing into one of the market leaders. Circuit Studio continues that trend, offering its users a professional, affordable, and intuitive design tool, whilst also allowing them to transition their historical design files.

Read about our partnership with Mentor on Electronics360

Category:Uncategorised

SamacSys is partnering with Mentor Graphics to provide free PCB symbols, footprints and 3D models within PartQuest, Mentor’s online platform for finding component information.

As a result of using our PCB libraries, companies avoid the task of library part creation. Library creation can be frustrating and time consuming and cause major delays during the development cycle.

The components that are found in PartQuest can now be downloaded into any Mentor PCB format (PADS, xDX Designer and Xpedition) without the need for manually extracting information from datasheets to create the CAD models. Finding accurate and complete datasheets is one of the major bottlenecks in the design of PCB symbols and footprints.

With more than 13 million components in the library, users of PartQuest will see the SamacSys components they wish to design-in with highlighted by our “green icon.” The new content will reduce library development time and improve design accuracy during the product development cycle.

SamacSys builds PCB Libraries 24/7

Category:Uncategorised

Here at SamacSys, we don’t like to rest on our laurels. We guarantee that any PCB libraries requested will be built within 48 hours. However, 90% of those part requests are actually completed in 24 hours.

We recognise that we have a diverse range of customers from large multinational companies with turnovers in the $billions to ‘makers’ working on their projects when they get a chance. To this end, we work 7 days a week so that we can cover requests for PCB libraries from all our customers. Yes, even at weekends any parts you request will usually be created within 24 hours.

In addition to our part creation service, we already have millions of footprints and symbols ready to download. If you’re feeling creative, you can use our PCB wizard to create your own IPC compliant parts and have the footprint and schematic within a couple of minutes.

The best part? It’s totally FREE.
