Arrow Electronics and Cadence Technologies have collaborated to help enrich the OrCAD Capture user experience. This alliance will accelerate the development of designs for engineers; allowing products to reach the market faster and become more affordable for the consumer.
The key components of this merge will be:
- Access to Arrow’s comprehensive online component and reference design data
- Allows users to make sure components are readily available, regulatory compliant, and have life cycles consistent with product regulations
- Shortened time to achieve production ready designs
- Arrow's global support team will have access to OrCAD technology
As part of the collaboration, the companies plan to allow engineers using the Cadence OrCAD suite of printed circuit board (PCB) design tools to access Arrow’s comprehensive online component and reference design data available through SiliconExpert. Access to this component and reference design data early in the design and schematic-capture process can help engineers shorten their time to market by achieving production-ready designs and ensuring that components are readily available, regulatory compliant and have lifecycles consistent with product requirements and cost targets.
“Many of our customers already use Arrow products and services, so the collaboration can provide a seamless customer experience.” said Tom Beckley, senior vice president and general manager, Custom IC and PCB Group at Cadence.
