FootPrintKu Introduces New Cloud-Based Design Services That Accelerate Time to Market and Increase Library Control

The Industry’s First Digital Design Tools That Use Automation Intelligence and Digitization to Produce Usable Design Files in Hours Not Days.

SAN FRANCISCO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 24, 2018 — Today at the Design Automation Conference (DAC 2018), FootPrintKu, a subsidiary of PalPilot International, announced the first ever cloud-based SaaS platform that allows design teams to launch products faster and easier by utilizing their automation intelligence (AI) software engine. In addition, FootPrintKu is introducing two new products, FPK Studio and FPK Vault. Together they eliminate all the inefficiencies of manually creating, checking and managing component libraries and significantly enhance the design engineering infrastructure.

FPK Studio

Built for engineers, users can easily upload electronic parts requests to the FPK Studio and the system will complete the work and QA the parts with our automation software. Accurate footprints, symbols and 3-D models will be ready by the next day, not weeks. And the platform delivers real time status tracking for all requests.

FPK Vault

Designed to meet the needs of librarians, FPK Vault service allows users to securely store, preview, edit and search their design library from anywhere using advanced search parameters. All files are kept in the cloud, and file changes and updates are kept current and accurate through version control. No additional tools or licenses are required.

“When it comes to electronic design automation (EDA) technology, time-to-market is critical. Semiconductor and system manufacturers are under intense pressure to deliver new product generations with more complex parts in shorter time frames,” said Chico Wu, VP of FootPrintKu. “FootPrintKu is excited to be on the forefront of developing innovative solutions that address the issues our customers are facing,” Wu added. “We currently have multiple customers using our solutions with great success including Omega EMS.”

“Speed and accuracy are huge benefits to my team. Everyone is on a tight schedule and wants it immediately. With FootPrintKu, it’s like adding a shift to my operations. And I know the parts will be built correctly, are repeatable and scalable and the cost-savings are big,” said Ian Grover, VP of Engineering at Omega EMS.
