PCB Libraries Rebrands Flagship Product, Library Expert Pro


Reading time ( words)

Over the past several years, Library Expert Professional has been a leading PCB library automation tool that has had hundreds of new features and upgrades including automation for 3D STEP model creation, footprint designer for non-standard packages, new standard component families, upgraded CAD LEAP Technology (User Preferences) and much more, including schematic symbol support. These features have made the Library Expert as the most powerful footprint and 3D STEP tool in the industry.

The Library Expert Pro, the industry’s original IPC-7351-based footprint generator, has outgrown its name, and is now Library Expert Enterprise. This change better reflects the advanced features it currently has, the new features planned for 2018, and its capacity to provide enterprise-level library solutions. Some of the largest companies in the world are taking advantage of these features at the enterprise level in their organization. 

"The rebranding is a natural step based on past, current, and planned development, and how the Library Expert is used in organizations by our customers," said PCB Libraries CEO Tom Hausherr. "We are extremely proud of the success of all versions of Library Expert and our on-line library content of over 1 million free parts. Despite the advanced features, the Library Expert remains the lowest-priced library solution available."

Libraries: A Must-have for Design

06/17/2019 | Dan Feinberg
I-Connect007 was invited to attend a session of the Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council (DC). Even though I have been an IPC member for over half a century (yes, almost since vacuum tubes dominated design), this was my first DC event.

XNC Format: Gerber Takes Data Into the Future

05/20/2019 | Denis Morin, Karel Tavernier, Jean-Pierre Charras, and Marius Matioc
The problem is that so many NC files are of deplorable quality because the NC format was never designed as a data transfer format. It has always been a machine driver and contains all sorts of information that a drilling machine needs, but that is irrelevant and confusing for data exchange.

Learning to Be More Flexible: Case Studies on Improving FPC Design

05/14/2019 | Todd MacFadden, Bose Corporation
As miniaturization requirements force manufacturers to pack more functionality into ever-smaller packages, it becomes more difficult to conform to IPC construction recommendations. Achieving robust FPCs requires frequent, iterative interaction internally among the mechanical, electrical, and PCB design teams, as well as with the fabricators and assemblers. The sooner in the design cycle you can engage the supplier and assembler, the better.
