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."

IPC Reliability Forum Wrap-up With Brook Sandy-Smith

08/12/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I attended the recent IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore, Maryland. The speakers and panelists focused on a variety of topics, but one issue that kept popping up was the failure of some microvias on military and aerospace PCBs. Fortunately, some smart technologists are focusing on determining the cause of these via failures. I asked Brook Sandy-Smith, IPC’s technical education program manager, to give us a quick wrap-up of this event.
