Altium announced new component libraries for board-level designs using Maxim Integrated devices. The new releases include board-level component models and corresponding supply chain information, such as real-time price and availability data from distributors and vendors including Digi-Key, Mouser and Farnell, directly to designers using Altium’s electronics design software, Altium Designer.
A component model hosted in AltiumLive includes the schematic symbol, PCB footprint and a detailed 3D model for 3D mechanical integration during the PCB design process. Corresponding component price and availability data is drawn directly from vendor and supplier web services. AltiumLive also provides access to a host of design-related content including training and design tips videos, reference designs and a large range of documentation resources.
More than 3,000 new Maxim Integrated components have now been released to AltiumLive bringing Altium’s coverage of the Maxim catalog to more than 5,500 devices. These include digital potentiometers, sensors, current-sense amplifiers and switched capacitors.
