Building the Back Bone

Library Development

Libraries form the backbone of any ECAD system and are crucial to ensuring that the components engineers select are not only fit for purpose but also drive the downstream tools effectively. Our team are highly trained in all aspects of library management from creating library elements through to a complete Library Management environment. We are also conversant with the latest design technologies as well as the standards such as IPC-7351B to help ensure a high quality library.

PCB Library Expertise

The list below outlines some of the aspects that we have expertise in across all systems.

  • • General Library component development
  • • Symbols
  • • Padstacks
  • • Geometries/Footprints/Cells
  • • Catalog/PDB/Database entries

As part of a library development we not only provide the tangible elements listed above but also capitalise on our considerable expertise to configure the library structure to fulfill your company needs – such as logic/thermal simulation, company part number –  to ensure that you achieve your goals.

PCB Library Flows Supported

We have experience with the Altium, Mentor Graphic™ - both BoardStation and Expedition PCB - and Zuken standard library flows. In addition we also have a great deal of experience installing, configuring and using the Mentor Graphic™ Library Management System (LMS). As part of the configuration we have defined

  • • Library structure
  • • Release mechanism
  • • Menu template
  • • Property options to specifications as required to_layout configuration
