EAGLE and Würth Elektronik eiSos partner on component library
New Würth Elektronik eiSos part library for more efficiency in the design process now available
12.06.2012, London – CadSoft Computer, a part of the Premier Farnell group [LON:PFL] has today announced that it is to partner with Würth Elektronik eiSos to offer an EAGLE PCB component library. The EAGLE WE eiSos library is available on www.cadsoft.de/libraries and contains a complete set of passive components including Cable Ferrites, SMD Ferrites, Inductors, Transformers, RF Components, Varistors and Shielding Materials as per the catalogue 2012/2013 that was released recently.
“We, as a leading manufacturer of Passive and Electromechanical Components, set ourselves the goal to serve our customers in all development stages of their latest projects. This includes for us, that EAGLE layout libraries are available for our complete product portfolio and that those always contain our newest and most innovative products,” said
Lars Fahrbach, Distribution Manager, Würth Elektronik eiSos.
“The availability of component libraries enables engineers a quick realization reference guide of a circuit board layout. Without those libraries we would waste half our time in creating component-compatible soldering pads while doing the PCB layout. That means we as engineers can concentrate ourselves and our resources on the actual layout,” said Oliver Opitz, Teamleader of strategic product development, Würth Elektronik eiSos
“The Würth Elektronik eiSos library can be downloaded and integrated into EAGLE and is a ready to use tool to optimize our customer”s productivity. Furthermore it will be included in the next EAGLE release that we are currently working on,” says Thomas Liratsch, General Manager of CadSoft Computer.
To enhance the customers design cycle CadSoft offers hundreds of component libraries and User Language Programs (ULPs) for feature enhancement and customization on its website for free. Further one click solutions, such as the PCB Services, a direct connection to high quality board manufactures for fast quotes and prototype production, and DesignLink, an interface to the extensive components data base for pricing-, product- and availability information, are included in EAGLE.
CadSoft EAGLE is a key feature of the Knode on element14. Found within the element14 Community, the Knode makes it easy to access manufacturer and industry experts, technical videos, webinars, documents and other engineers who you can connect with to solve real design challenges.
