Labcenter Partners with SamacSys to Provide Schematic Symbols, PCB Footprints and 3D Models

Labcenter Electronics Ltd has partnered with SamacSys to provide free PCB symbols, footprints and 3D models for its users. This content will be delivered from the market leading The SamacSys CAD library content saves companies and electronics engineers the time-consuming task of PCB part creation.

SamacSys is the global leader in providing accurate component ECAD data, and has been selected to provide high-quality CAD models for Labcenter’s Proteus design tools. Components found at can now be downloaded into Proteus without the need for manually extracting information from datasheets to create the CAD models. The SamacSys solution is unique in the industry because of its capacity to deliver live, IPC-standard quality-checked CAD models that are future proof.

Electronics engineers and PCB designers now can access a PCB library of more than 15 million components. This new content significantly reduces library development time and improves design accuracy during any product development cycle – leading to lower costs.

When a manufacturer brings a new component to the market, SamacSys’ PCB Library Wizard allows users to create their own IPC-compliant components for instant download. SamacSys also offers the only free part-creation service, with more than 90% of new part requests fulfilled within 24 hours (as measured since the start of 2016).

“The integration of SamacSys tools with Proteus provides a quick and seamless way for our users to search and import new library parts,” said Iain Cliffe, Executive Director at Labcenter Electronics Ltd. “Not only does this make literally millions of existing schematic components and footprints easily accessible but Proteus users will also benefit from a free-to-use part creation service for new silicon devices.”

Alex MacDougall, Managing Director at SamacSys, added: “It’s been a pleasure working with the professional Labcenter team. Proteus is a popular tool so we’re really pleased our partnership can help the Proteus engineering community design their circuit boards more efficiently. ”
