EMA Design Automation has released the CIS QuickStart app, giving OrCAD Capture CIS customers an automated way to implement a component database.
A centralized component information system has numerous proven advantages; however, the time, effort, and expertise required to setup these systems tends to be a deterrent for many design teams, said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. We created CIS QuickStart to make it easy for design teams of any size to get started on their own.
According to the company, CIS QuickStart removes the need for engineers to become database experts by providing a predefined database schema and setup utility. The database is automatically populated, ensuring that symbol, footprint, and part information is accurate and available for use in a centralized library. This makes part selection and maintenance accurate and efficient, and it allows design teams to share components and component data whether they are across the hall or across the globe. Finally, because the database contains all relevant component information, bills of materials (BOMs) are created automatically and with fewer errors, saving time and reducing production problems.
CIS QuickStart is available from the OrCAD Capture Marketplace and includes 1,000 parts with OrCAD Capture Schematic Symbols and PCB Editor Footprints, complete with all parametric data.
