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

By: SiliconExpert on September 11th, 2020

This week, we announced an integration with Zuken, a global CAD solution provider.  Zuken’s eCADSTAR PCB Editor and CR-8000 use an embedded experience of SiliconExpert, called SiliconExpert CONNECT, to bring the latest component and parts information into the design tools.  Design engineers using Zuken’s design tools now have 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.SiliconExpert CONNECT is the easiest way for our partners to take advantage of the trusted database of information that our electronic engineers have spent the past two decades curating.  It plugs the SiliconExpert user experience into partner applications, becoming part of a more valuable solution.  Zuken customers can perform bill of materials (BoM) risk assessments and part searches.

SiliconExpert CONNECT analyzes BOMs by identifying parts that might put designs at risk. With the click of a button, SiliconExpert proprietary algorithms give a thorough risk review by part and provide cross-referenced replacement parts.  Finding parts has never been easier, with SE CONNECT Search you can search parametrically or direct manufacturers part number and get instant access to billions of data points including cross-reference replacement for at-risk parts.
