The electronics company RS Components has created a printed circuit board design tool - the new version of DesignSpark PCS 4.0 - that offers developers comprehensive support from the development phase to the ordering the printed circuit boards. Würth Elektronik's online shop WEdirekt is also linked-up with the new version of the software.
The new software version from RS Components includes many practical functions, such as a component library (ModelSource) and a PCB assembly service. RS Components chose to work with Würth Electrnonik's online shop WEdirekt as one of its partners for the integrated offer feature (PCB Quote).
PCB Quote generates a cost overview based on standard PCBs and the specifications used. The designer can then immediately select a supplier - such as WEdirekt - and continue working based on this direct offer. Once the design for the PCB is finished, the order goes straight to the supplier and enters production.
"We are pleased with this partnership", emphasises Markus Osterberger of Würth Elektronik. "We are convinced that our price-performance package at WEdirekt will attract many DesignSpark users and that we will be able to attract new customers with our know-how and abilities."
