The new engineering eco-system is here!
We’ve been busy over the past few months working to make some brand new developments to the DesignSpark community. You’ll see that the site has a brand new look and feel, improved online forum, navigation and search making it easier for you to share your ideas and find the information you are looking for.
In addition to the release of DesignSpark PCB ver4, boasting some great new features, We’ve also created ModelSource, a unique new web-based component library. Access over 80,000 FREE Schematic and PCB symbols in more than 20 formats, including PADS, ORCAD, ALTIUM and CADSTAR! These libraries are aligned with the RS board-level product offer and enable you to focus on innovation, research and development rather than spending time on creating the basic building blocks of your design.
A new BOM Quote function in PCB Version 4 provides an instant quotation for the components that you put into your PCB design; this cool feature will then automatically generate a BOM user report which will have the RS part number embedded in the new PCB component libraries. There is also a PCB Quote service to provide you with independent quote comparisons from bare-board PCB manufacturers based on your specifications.
So, with all these new great features, DesignSpark tools provide a complete end-to-end design support for users. Don’t forget you can download these tools all for FREE!
After feedback from the DesignSpark community, we have now replaced the old ASK section with a Forum. Here you can more easily engage with peers, partners and industry experts and find solutions and answers. The content from the old ASK section will be migrated into the forum over the next few days.
Please feel free to leave us any feedback about the site in the forum. Like any new site, we know there are a few rouge bugs out there!, so we are working hard to fix these asap. We are also busy migrating the remaining content from the old DesignSpark, so please bear with us whilst we complete this.
We encourage you all to contribute to DesignSpark and share your Knowledge, Tools, Product Reviews and expertise on the Forum. It's easy, just use the "contribute to DesignSpark" menu on the Home Page. If your interested in Blogging, drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have lots of new and exciting features to add in the coming months, so watch this space!
