RS further expands DesignSpark capabilities

September 2023 News

RS Group recently announced a further expansion in the capability of DesignSpark – its fast-growing online community for engineers – with its new Product Design Centre. The design centre includes a rich pool of technical information on more than one billion electronic component part numbers, enabling DesignSpark members to make more informed decisions about the products they use in their designs. It significantly enhances the CAD library that is already available to DesignSpark members, and provides more than 40 different kinds of content, including product data, environmental and lifecycle information, together with 3D models, footprints and schematics.

New product information will be available as part of all DesignSpark subscription options, including product datasheets, RoHS and Reach compliance status (Y/N), and 3D model and footprint data. In addition, further component data is available in both the DesignSpark Creator and DesignSpark Engineer options, including lifecycle risk, environmental risk, RoHS and Reach compliance information, and DRC status. Furthermore, even more detailed product information – including technical attributes, predictive lifecycle, product alternative, export compliance to HTS, ECCN and Schedule B, product change and end-of-life notifications – is available as part of DesignSpark Engineer.

“We have worked closely with Accuris (formerly S&P; Global Engineering Solutions) to deliver this substantial increase in product information, which can be crucial to design engineers that need to ensure components and products are safe, fit for purpose, or have less impact on the environment,” says Mike Bray, VP of Innovation and DesignSpark at RS. “The new Product Design Centre is just one of the comprehensive features now available across all the DesignSpark subscription choices, which provides a package of CAD software, design services, training and support – estimated to be worth than more £1000 – to design engineers, pro-creators and students.”
