Supplyframe’s subsidiary company SamacSys combines its specialisms with Cadence's design tool suites to enhance PCB development. With the OrCAD Capture Cloud and Allegro System Capture solutions in use to supplement SamacSys' platform - offering up a library of PCB graphics such as 3D models and schematic symbols - and both companies hope to open up what's available at hand for embedded engineers.
“Collaborating with Cadence to integrate our eCAD model platform within their next-generation Allegro System Capture and OrCAD Capture products is extremely exciting,” said Alex MacDougall, CEO at SamacSys: “Cadence chose to collaborate with SamacSys to provide a fresh user experience for engineers who are now able to search online and download PCB symbols, footprints and 3D models directly from within these design suites. Component library management has now been extended to allow importing models into a design with a single click. Our collaboration with Cadence helps Allegro and OrCAD users save critical time during the design process.”
“We wanted to make our new generation of Allegro System Capture tools as intuitive and future-proof as possible. Giving our users direct access to the SamacSys eCAD model platform within the design environment helps the design process become truly seamless,” said Dan Fernsebner, product marketing director of PCB solutions at Cadence: “Designers using the Allegro and OrCAD tools can now benefit from the convenience and confidence of accessing high-quality PCB models for components across the entire industry from SamacSys, without having to waste valuable time.”
