- Ultra Librarian grants Altair users entry to an extensive database of over 16 million symbols, footprints, and 3D models.
- A shift in electronic design, efficiency and innovation, and providing a streamlined workflow that ensures accuracy while saving time and resources.
Altair has revealed the Ultra Librarian computer-aided design (CAD) model library integration with several of its prominent electronic Computer-Aided Design (ECAD) verification and multiphysics solutions, including Altair PollEx, Altair SimLab, and Altair One UDE. This integration facilitates users with swift access to a vast repository of over 16 million verified symbols, footprints, and 3D models, negating the necessity for manually creating and maintaining these entities.
According to the company’s Chief Technology Officer, Sam Mahalingam, this represents a leap in enhancing the efficiency and potency of ECAD verification and multiphysics solutions. The integration with Ultra Librarian magnifies the robustness of tools and significantly refines workflow accuracy, sparing users considerable time, effort, and financial resources. Users can effortlessly access Ultra Librarian’s validated CAD models directly from the company’s desktop and cloud-based platforms, thereby streamlining the process considerably.
The fusion with Ultra Librarian expedites the components’ search, preview, and placement processes through web interfaces or native CAD integrations, thus diminishing errors and saving time. The models available undergo verification to ensure alignment with industry standards, fostering user confidence in embedding these models directly into their tools. They can visualise the exact manifestation of the designs, components, and systems upon completion, thereby slashing modelling time and guaranteeing that simulations mirror the true digital representation of their designs.
This development allows users to apply Ultra Librarian’s models seamlessly in the company’s multiphysics offerings for tasks such as printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing verification and thermal, structural, and mechanical simulations, enhancing the scope significantly. It helps individuals and organisations design, simulate, and verify PCB and electronic components, offering them a distinct edge in their operations.
The company claims that this venture augments its already technology suite and promises to escalate productivity levels for electronic design clients across various sectors. This partnership underscores the company’s commitment to fostering innovation and efficiency, promising an enriched user experience and an accelerated path to innovation.
