Building the Back Bone

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
  • Obsolescence

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 – both Nexus and Concord Pro, Mentor Graphic™ – both BoardStation and Expedition PCB standard library flows. During a library development engagement we will consulted on and then implement the library taking into consideration all aspects of the flow, including by not restricted to.

  • Library structure
  • Release mechanism
  • Component categorisation
  • Property/Parameter
  • Life cycle management

Note: – For legacy flows we have experience installing, configuring and using the Mentor Graphic™ Library Management System (LMS).
