WEdirekt and CadSoft Start CollaborationSeptember 30, 2015 | Würth Elektronik
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Würth Elektronik, the printed circuit board manufacturer and CadSoft, the software developer are entering a cooperation. This benefits both customers of the WEdirekt online shop and the users of EAGLE software.
“With the direct integration of the online shop into the EAGLE software, we are offering our customers an even faster way to correctly order their circuit boards via WEdirekt”, says Carina Harnisch, Head of WEdirekt.
The automatic application of the technical parameters is performed with only a click of the mouse, with the “PCB - Quote button”. The customer is able to quickly and easily request the quantity, price and delivery time from the configurator and to immediately place an order.
“The EAGLE PCB software is used by many developers, when it comes to PCB design”, says Harnisch, “so we are all the more pleased that we have found a partner in CadSoft that has the same philosophy as we do. Both the EAGLE software and the WEdirekt online calculator are user-friendly and offer an efficient circuit board design in top quality as well as a quick and simple order process.”
David Conochie, European Regional Manager EMEA at CadSoft adds: “The intention of CadSoft is to offer its users easy access to PCB produc-tion. Through the integration of the PCB Quote button into the user inter-face of EAGLE, direct access is provided. This way, we save users the sometimes time consuming search for a suitable PCB manufacturer. With WEdirekt as a partner, we are sure to be offering our customers the add-ed value they desire.”
Both cooperation partners especially focus on quality, as well as the bene-fits and requirements of their customers. Accordingly, usability and user-friendliness is constantly checked and developed.
CadSoft Computer GmbH and CadSoft Inc. are subsidiaries of Premier Farnell plc., one of the world’s leading distributors of electronic compo-nents and industrial products. CadSoft specializes in the development of the popular CAD-Software EAGLE, with which it has impressed design engineers worldwide for over 25 years.
EAGLE is a user-friendly, powerful and affordable software for efficient circuit board design (PCB design) and combines the modules schematic editor, layout editor and autorouter on one single interface.

One of my great joys as a grandfather of eight is spending time with them at the park. It doesn't take too long until I'm getting stuck on a slide that is too small for me or on the seesaw, with me on one side and them trying to lift me. At that point, they learn some harsh lessons in physics and how heavy Grandpa really is. A seesaw is a relatively simple device, but it’s a great way to explain a rather complex concept in PCB design: design tradeoffs. Each decision made throughout a design comes with inherent pros and cons.
Spirit AeroSystems, Inc. announced the grand opening of its Engineering Design Center in Subang, Malaysia, that expands the company’s global engineering capabilities, during opening day of the 2024 Singapore Air Show.
It’s been another busy week in the industry. We lost another old friend last week. The EIPC show happened, and Pete Starkey provided us with complete and compelling show coverage, from start to finish. Recently, we posed the question, “When is it time to introduce embedded components into your PCB design?” which was asked and answered by design aficionado Kris Moyers in the latest issue of Design007 Magazine. We are proud to be a part of the exciting Global Insights weekly newsletter, which Nolan Johnson and Brian Knier explored in their interview, and we rounded out the week with some big merger news. Here are my picks for the past week’s must-read news items.
ROCKA Solutions is pleased to announce its partnership with Vega Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of premium-quality driver bits and fastener driving tools. Under this collaboration, ROCKA Solutions is a distributor for Vega Industries' top-notch tools designed for precision and durability.
Aismalibar will be attending the APEC, the leading conference for practicing power electronics professionals, in Long Beach, California from February 25th to 29th, 2024 in Booth 552. Aismalibar will be presenting new cooling technologies for power electronics, specifically Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) and Insulated Metal Substrates (IMS).
