Mentor: free schematic symbols, PCB footprints and 3D Models for PartQuest

Mentor Graphics has partnered with SamacSys to provide free PCB symbols, footprints and 3D models from within PartQuest, Mentor’s online platform for finding component information. The SamacSys CAD library content saves companies the time-consuming task of library part creation.

SamacSys has been selected to provide high-quality CAD models for Mentor’s PADS, xDX Designer and Xpedition PCB design solutions. Components found on PartQuest can now be downloaded into any Mentor PCB format without the need for manually extracting information from datasheets to create the CAD models. SamacSys’ tools are unique in the industry because of their capacity to deliver live, IPC-standard quality-checked parts libraries that never go out of date.

Engineers and PCB designers now have access to a library containing more than 13 million components. Users of PartQuest will now see the globally recognised ‘green icon’ from SamacSys next to the components they wish to design-in. This new content significantly reduces library development time and improves design accuracy during any product development cycle – leading to lower costs.
