The main advantage of a 1K resin is its ease of appli- cation; no mixing is required, and dispensing machine set up is a much simpler affair. Over the coming months, I shall be shar- ing this column with my colleagues who will be covering other areas of electronic circuit protection. In the meantime, I hope to cover a wide range of issues concerning the correct EMA Design Automation announced the availability of symbols, footprints, and 3D models for all Power Integra- tions components and anyone can access for free from,, and "With this new set of models, engineers can download the library components they need for their Power Integrations based designs," said Manny Marcano, president and CEO of EMA. "Having access to these verified models saves engineer- ing time and eliminates mistakes that can occur when manually building part models." Power Integrations' high-performance electronic com- ponents are important to engineers designing high-volt- age power-conversion systems. These integrated cir- cuits and diodes enable compact, energy-efficient AC-DC po wer supplies for a wide range of electronic products including mobile devices, televisions, computers, appliances and smart utility meters. "We chose to provide Ultra Librarian based models for Power Integrations components because we wanted the highest quality design models pos- sible, and we wanted it freely avail- able to the widest audience," said David Chen, director of applications engineering for Power Integrations. "Giving our customers the ability to download design-ready, verified mod- els allows them to easily and correctly create designs using our high-perfor- mance electronic components." All models are created based on Power Integrations specifications, and the symbols, footprints, and 3D mod- els are built to function correctly together. All features such as matching pin names and numbers, accurate cross-probing between symbols and footprints, and 3D models are precisely aligned with the footprints. The models go through more than 30 checks during creation by the Ultra Librarian team and are then verified by Power Integrations engineers. The Ultra Librarian 3D models are more accurate than generic 3D models—important when there are tight space requirements. The Power Integra- tions models are downloadable in over 20 CAD formats and available for almost all EDA and CAD design tools.
