SiliconExpert and Zuken Deliver Critical Component Data for Small and Enterprise-Level Businesses

SiliconExpert, leader in electronic component databases and parts information, and Zuken, a global CAD solution provider, have combined forces to deliver small business and enterprise-level design engineers access to critical component supply chain data at the conceptual phase of design to mitigate risk and help prevent costly re-designs and time-to-market delays.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Sept. 8, 2020 - PRLog -- "As products become more complex and connected, high-speed design is a key part of the successful manufacturability of printed circuit boards. High-speed components and interfaces are at the heart of today's smart and internet-connected products, and design teams require accurate and up to date component information," says Jane Berrie, signal integrity expert, Zuken Tech Center, Bristol.

Through SiliconExpert's embedded partner integration technology called CONNECT, SiliconExpert now feeds real-time, accurate component information, drawn from a database of over a billion components, straight into Zuken's two PCB design platforms, eCADSTAR and CR-8000.  This integrated CAD tool intelligence helps a design engineer to make the right component selection based on component availability, compliance, risk, and obsolescence criteria.  Enabling engineers to make these critical decisions at the start of the design process can help ensure uninterrupted delivery schedules with an accurate supply chain-ready Bill of Materials.

"SiliconExpert provides dynamic commerce data that reinforces the engineer's CAD library data," says Martin Chatterton, vice president and general manager of SiliconExpert.  "This dynamic data can give every company the ability to build better, budget-conscious products faster."

SiliconExpert and Zuken have a long-standing relationship based on a joint commitment to innovation, efficiency, and single-source solutions for the design engineer community.  Silicon Expert's CONNECT technology, combined with Zuken's state of the art PCB design platforms, brings supply chain optimized design to the product development community.
