Mentor Graphics is partnering with SamacSys to provide free PCB symbols, footprints and 3D models in Mentor’s online platform for finding component information, dubbed PartQuest.

The CAD library from SamacSys saves companies the task of library part creation, which can be time consuming. The models will be used for Mentor’s PADS, xDX Designer and Xpedition PCB designs. The components that are found in PartQuest can now be downloaded into any Mentor PCB format without the need for manually extracting information from datasheets to create the CAD models.

With more than 13 million components in the library, users of PartQuest will see SamacSys components they wish to design-in with its “green icon.” The new content will reduce library development time and improve design accuracy during product development cycle.
