EMA Design Automation, a provider of electronic design automation (EDA) solutions, has released the Component Information Portal (CIP) 5.0 that boasts a tight integration with Cadence OrCAD Capture CIS and EMA EDABuilder for a complete part search and new part introduction flow including automated symbol creation.

Managing part data can be a significant challenge, especially when using shared libraries across a group of engineers. CIP is the only web-based PCB library management solution with integration to component part supplier data from Digikey, Mouser, Farnell, Future and Arrow that allows access within the CAD environment as well as from a web browser. This provides a unique environment for managing OrCAD component data and enables design teams to leverage all of the advantages of a shared parts library without incurring the overhead and cost of configuring and managing the database directly. The enhanced integration in CIP 5.0 adds the ability to preview part symbols from CIP and then place parts directly on the OrCAD Capture CIS schematic canvas, detailed the company.

CIP 5.0 has also added an integration with EDABuilder to help automate the new part introduction flow. Users can launch EDABuilder directly from CIP to quickly and reliably create OrCAD Capture CIS symbols for their new parts. Symbols created using this method are then automatically updated and associated with the correct parametric data in CIP.

Another feature in CIP 5.0 gives users the option to define BOM templates that can then be applied during BOM report generation. Templates can be fully customised including the definition of header sections, selecting which data to include, and defining how to format the data in the report. This gives engineering teams the ability to create ready-to-order "zero touch" BOMs with just a few clicks of the mouse.
