The faster the better is the overriding value in design these days. To support this, Arrow Electronics and Cadence Design Systems have developed a collaboration to bring integrated design tools to design engineers. The goal is to help design engineers accelerate the pace of new product development and get products to market faster and cheaper.

The collaboration allows engineers using the Cadence OrCAD suite of printed circuit board design tools to access Arrow’s comprehensive online component and reference design data available through SiliconExpert. “This is part of Arrow’s overall digital strategy,” Matt Anderson, Arrow’s chief digital officer, told Design News . “We decided we needed to focus on the work design engineers do online to help them get to market faster and keep up with all the changes in the market.”
Anderson noted that access to component and reference design data early in the design and schematic-capture process can help engineers shorten their time to market. The SiliconExpert tool was designed to help engineers find production-ready designs and ensure that components are readily available. The tool also indicates whether the components are regulatory compliant and have lifecycles consistent with product requirements and cost targets.
