San Francisco--June 15, 1998--OrCAD (Beaverton, Ore.) announced a partnership with component distributor Marshall Industries to provide free component data via the Internet to OrCAD customers.
Marshall has collaborated with OrCAD to provide electronics design engineers with real-time pricing, availability, lead-time, specification, symbol, and footprint information on electronic components. The data is accessible to engineers directly from the Internet via the OrCAD Internet Component Assistant (ICA). The ICA is built into OrCAD Capture CIS (Component Information System) and OrCAD Express CIS software for PCB system and programmable logic design. Access to these new data sources and types is in addition to the OrCAD products' built-in Internet access to the popular 500,000-part ICSelector component database.
Automated Internet access to Marshall data is available now in North America with the purchase of OrCAD Capture CIS or OrCAD Express CIS.
