Osram Opto introduces lighting design library
Collaborating with SnapEDA, the electronics design library, Osram Opto Semiconductors has released its entire collection of photodiodes, phototransistors, laser diodes and infra red (IR) emitters on SnapEDA’s website to help PCB designers and electronic engineers integrate them into designs.
Rather than spend days creating digital models for each component in their designs, engineers can simply drag-and-drop Osram components into designs, saving time which can be spent on the design build.
The models can be downloaded without charge from SnapEDA’s electronics design library and from the websites of Osram’s franchised distributors which support SnapEDA models.
Highlights of the library selection include the Synios P 2720 series of high-power IR illumination LED technology with compact packaging, the IR Oslon Black family, for high power density with a small package and integrated lens and the IR Topled D5140 portfolio, a traditional DIL large-area Si PIN photodiode in a compact package.
Electronic design formats that are supported include Cadence OrCAD, Allegro, Altium, Eagle, KiCad, PCB123, Proteus, and Mentor Graphics PADS. The PCB footprints have been created based on Osram’s recommended land patterns or IPC-7351B standards when applicable.
Osram components include LEDs, IR LEDs (IREDs), laser diodes, photodiodes and phototransistors, which are used in automotive lighting, industrial electronics and mobile electronics as well as in general lighting.
SnapEDA is believed to be the internet’s first parts library for circuit board design. It provides ready-to-use building blocks for circuit board design via its website and plug-ins for PCB design tools. The accessibility can save days in product development in products ranging from medical devices, to electric airplanes.
