EMA Design Automation has added SiliconExpert to its PCB design portfolio. This provides three new capabilities to the EMA customer base: Part Search for electronic component data and business intelligence for millions of components, BOM (bill of materials) Manager to proactively monitor the supply chain risk factors that affect a business and the CIP Compliance Module for OrCAD, which integrates part search and analysis capabilities directly inside OrCAD, the company states.
The SiliconExpert component database is continuously updated with the latest data on millions of integrated circuits, passives, and electromechanical parts from thousands of leading component manufacturers. Along with BOM management, these tools empower engineers, supply chain and procurement professionals to make the right decisions at the right time, according to a company press release.
“Our customers can now select parts based on component lifecycle status, environmental compliance, inventory and more all without leaving the OrCAD design environment,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “This capability alone has the potential to save weeks of manual part research, while ensuring that parts with the required specifications are used in the designs. This translates to a significant time savings, while managing risk, avoiding redesigns, and mitigating obsolescence.”
