RS Components and Accelerated Designs introduce a new series of free schematic symbols and PCB footprints

RS Components (RS), the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products and the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), and Accelerated Designs today announced the introduction of a new series of component libraries to provide customers with schematic symbols and Printed Circuit Board (PCB) footprints for an extensive range of  products from STMicroelectronics and Microchip Technology.

Thousands of PCB footprints and schematic symbols are available for free download in a vendor-neutral format from the RS online DesignSpark electronics design community and resource centre, and can be exported to virtually any EDA and CAD/CAE system using Accelerated Designs’ Ultra Librarian (UL) translator software, thus saving the design engineer valuable time and effort in the CAD design process.  The UL Reader also supports the free DesignSpark PCB design tool from RS that offers powerful schematic capture and PCB layout software.

Martin Keenan, Programme Manager for DesignSpark PCB at RS Components, said, “RS is committed to supporting the needs of electronics design engineers and to removing barriers to innovation.  Engineers today spend a considerable amount of time creating symbols and footprints for their particular CAD suite. Accelerated Designs’ free UL Reader simplifies this process and helps speed up the ‘Find, Design and Buy’ activities of our Electronics customers.”

"Making our free Ultra Librarian software available through the RS online DesignSpark resource centre means that our customers can easily access all of the critical data they need to begin the CAD design process. This collaboration will help accelerate time to market for their products,” commented Frank Frank, President of Accelerated Designs.

The free Ultra Librarian software, including footprints and symbols, is available now for download at:
