Press release date: June 17, 2014

Rochester, NY —EMA Design Automation (, a full-service provider of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, today announced Component Information Portal™ (CIP) 5.0 – offering a tight integration with CadenceŽ OrCADŽ Capture CIS and EMA EDABuilderŽ for a complete part search and new part introduction flow including automated symbol creation. “CIP 5.0 fulfills the automated new part introduction vision, EMA pioneered back in 2008,” said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. “Design teams now have a complete methodology to identify, manage, and define their part data, and it is all done within their design tool, OrCAD Capture CIS.”

Managing part data can be a significant challenge, especially when using shared libraries across a group of engineers.  CIP is the only web-based PCB library management solution with integration to component part supplier data from Digikey, Mouser, Farnell, Future, and Arrow that allows access within the CAD environment as well as from a web browser.  This provides a unique environment for managing OrCAD component data and enables design teams to leverage all of the advantages of a shared parts library without incurring the overhead and cost of configuring and managing the database directly.  The enhanced integration in CIP 5.0 adds the ability to preview part symbols from CIP and then place parts directly on the OrCAD Capture CIS schematic canvas.

CIP 5.0 has also added an integration with EDABuilder to help automate the new part introduction flow.  Users can launch EDABuilder directly from CIP to quickly and reliably create OrCAD Capture CIS symbols for their new parts.  Symbols created using this method are then automatically updated and associated with the correct parametric data in CIP.

Another new feature in CIP 5.0 gives users the option to define bill of materials (BOM) templates that can then be applied during BOM report generation.  Templates can be fully customized including the definition of header sections, selecting which data to include, and defining how to format the data in the report. This gives engineering teams the ability to create ready-to-order “zero touch” BOMs with just a few clicks of the mouse.

“My customers are always looking for ways to increase productivity and ensure on-time product delivery,” said Ole Ejlersen, CTO, Nordcad Systems.  “CIP 5.0 provides a reliable and engineering friendly path to manage part data, as well as enabling design teams to connect to corporate PLM/ERP/MRP systems so engineering has insight into purchasing information during the part selection process. Best of all this is seamlessly integrated into the OrCAD Capture CIS environment.
