SiliconExpert, a world leader in electronic component databases and parts information, has partnered with Zuken®, a leading EDA software provider, to deliver critical component information to engineers within their design environment. The new integration enables engineers to make better component selection decisions, resulting in higher quality products and lower costs in less time.
SiliconExpert and Zuken now connect the component library to the supply chain through an advanced integration, feeding real time, accurate component information drawn from 34 million components, straight to the desktop.
“Zuken’s advanced PCB development environment offers the quintessential location for engineers to improve their component selection decisions,” said Martin Chatterton, Director & General Manager –SiliconExpert. “Acquiring the latest component information can be an arduous task for an engineer. They want to design exciting new products, not research the latest lifecycle status or part lead-time. Partnering with Zuken will help our customers build better products faster and cheaper.”
SiliconExpert provides the dynamic commerce data to complement the CAD library data. With the new integration, Zuken’s engineering data management system (DS-CR) uses RESTful APIs to pull data updates directly from SiliconExpert on a user-defined frequency. SiliconExpert’s updated data, combined with DS-CR, provide the following benefits:
- Elimination of stale or inaccurate commerce data from the corporate library
- High risk parts are flagged during the component selection process
- Proactive engineering team alerts during the entire development cycle based on critical component status changes (e.g., lifecycle status)
- Consolidation of critical component data reducing component research and selection time
“As products become more complex and competition increases, component selection can make or break a new product introduction,” says Bob Potock, Vice President of Marketing at Zuken USA, Inc. “By partnering with SiliconExpert, Zuken puts reliable and up-to-date component information in the hands of the design team, resulting in better component selection and ultimately better products.”
