SamacSys introduces Labcenter’s Proteus PCB software to library
Electronic component CAB models and library services provider, SamacSys has completed a new integration with Labcenter Electronics, the maker of the Proteus Design Suite PCB software. This collaboration will support Proteus customers by directly integrating the SamacSys platform of free design resources, which includes PCB footprints, schematic symbols and 3D models for more than 15 million components.
Engineers using Proteus v8.9 and beyond are now able to search online and download PCB symbols, footprints and 3D models directly from within the tool. Component library management is now fully automated, and models can be imported into a design in a single click. Alex MacDougall, CEO at SamacSys, said: “Our partnership with Labcenter helps Proteus users save critical time during the design process and will further enhance future Proteus versions.”
Iain Cliffe, executive director at Labcenter Electronics, added: “Proteus users can now search and import library parts from a web database with over 15 million parts and can even submit free build requests if a part doesn’t exist. We view this as a best in class solution to the persistent user problem of library part creation.”
SamacSys has over 250,000 users in more than 180 countries, with customers rangingfrom individual makers to professional engineers to international brands.
Labcenter’s Proteus Design Suite software is a professional EDA tool for mainstream PCB design.
SamacSys develops software tools for creating and managing electronic component ECAD data. Headquartered in the UK, SamacSys offers free-for-life access to high-quality PCB library content that integrates with existing PCB design tools, for every component and every engineer.
SamacSys’ customers range from individual maker engineers to international brands. The company is the chosen partner of leading names such as Arrow Electronics, Mouser Electronics, Mentor Graphics, ON Semiconductor, RS Components, STMicroelectronics and Zuken.
Labcenter Electronics was founded in 1988 to develop high quality, affordable CAD software. Since its launch, the Proteus Design Suite has evolved into one of the most cost effective, fully featured EDA packages on the market, says Labcenter Electronics.
Labcenter Electronics Ltd is headquartered in the UK and the Proteus Design Suite is sold through a worldwide network of distributors and directly on the Labcenter website.
