The Content Team has been busy developing new component libraries throughout May - in this announcement, we see the launch of TI Amplifiers & Linear support with a wide range of Op Amps, and we finally bring our Microchip 8-bit PIC coverage into line for 2013...
From Texas Instruments we have released the first Operational Amplifier libraries covering General Purpose Amplifiers (1448) and High Speed (1100). A total of 2548 new components, all available in the Altium Content Vault and as Design Content libraries available here. We have opted to release TI Op Amps as three main collections, General Purpose, High Speed and Precision Amplifiers. The 4500+ components from Precision will follow in the next release.
For Microchip, we catch up on our coverage of PIC 8-bit microcontrollers, revising PIC10, PIC12, PIC16 and PIC18 collections. A total of 2620 new components released including most of the latest F devices - but please note, source data for this particular release was captured a couple months back, so there’s a follow up in the pipeline and we will address any recently released devices then. If there’s a particular new product that you want to see in the libraries sooner - we’d be happy to hear about it!
The new ‘Content Request Form’ went live during May, and we’ve already seen a flurry of requests. Thanks for taking the time! - we’re processing as many of them into our schedule as possible. You can find the new request form here.
We are also monitoring comments across the Design Content space, and aim to greatly improve the dialog there - please continue to leave your comments.
All component families from this release, along with the rest of our growing collection, can be found under Unified Components in the Design Content section of the website. You can also place these components directly from within Altium Designer via the Vault Explorer - where you will also find live supplier links and pricing information from suppliers such as Digi-Key, Farnell/Newark, Mouser and more - connect to the Altium Content Vault to explore further.
