PCB Libraries, Inc. & Samtec develop free libraries
Jun 25, 2007
PCB Libraries, Inc., a rapidly growing CAD library management solutions provider, and Samtec Inc., a leading worldwide manufacturer of PC board level interconnects, joined forces to develop a Samtec library available for no charge - in all major CAD formats - from both SAMTEC and PCB Libraries websites.
The libraries are available in their entirety from www.PCBLibraries.com/Samtec or on a part-by-part basis from www.samtec.com/CADLibrary.
All Samtec parts are created in the following CAD formats:
* Altium Designer
* NI Ultiboard
* PADS Layout
* Board Station
* OrCAD Layout
Samtec connectors can be easily and quickly searched with the free LP Viewer available from PCB Libraries. The LP Viewer has a powerful and flexible search feature that can help locate any Samtec part. It is a scaled-down version of the free IPC-7351 LP Calculator (available at www.PCBLibraries.com) and the IPC-7351 LP Wizard which won the 2007 DesignVision Award from IEC as the most innovative PCB design tool based on its innovation, uniqueness and market impact.
"We are pleased to have had this opportunity to work with Samtec on this project that will benefit anyone in the electronics industry, regardless the CAD tool they use," said Tom Hausherr, CEO and director of technology at PCB Libraries.
