IHS ANNOUNCES RECAL: PARAMETRICALLY SEARCHABLE DATABASE OF RESISTORS, CAPACITORS AND INDUCTORS

 IHS ANNOUNCES RECAL: PARAMETRICALLY SEARCHABLE DATABASE
 OF RESISTORS, CAPACITORS AND INDUCTORS
 ENGLEWOOD, Colo., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- IHS Inc. announced today ReCaL, a database of passive electronic components including resistors, capacitors, inductors and RCL networks. ReCaL is designed to address the needs of those involved in electronic design, component engineering, purchasing, specification and maintenance. Information from over 280 manufacturers specializing in capacitors and resistors and over 230 manufacturers of inductors is included. With over 1.1 million devices, ReCaL is the largest, most complete database of its kind.
 "IHS is committed to making our customer's time as productive as possible," said Jay Jordan, president of IHS. "With ReCaL, engineers can identify and compare passive electronic devices, find replacement parts and alternative sources and view manufacturers' datasheets. Research that once took hours can now be done in a matter of minutes or even seconds."
 ReCaL's unique organization is analogous to a library of parametrically searchable data books, providing access to unabridged manufacturers' datasheets with complete text, charts and graphics. Information on a device or manufacturer may be located and retrieved by searching on part number, device parameter and/or functions, manufacturer's name, keywords or Mil-Spec data, depending on the user's needs. ReCaL users may also locate needed datasheets by selecting a manufacturer's catalog and browsing its table-of-contents. In addition, ReCaL's Preferred Device Qualification (PDQ) feature permits cross-referencing of in-house part numbers and user defined parameters to manufacturer's part numbers.
 Design engineers will be particularly interested in ReCaL's ability to export vector graphics in a variety of industry standard file formats. These graphics may be viewed, edited and integrated into CAD designs.
 ReCaL is quick and easy to use. "Self-explanatory search menus with scrollable word wheels take the frustration out of component research," said Jordan. "With minimal training, inexperienced users quickly become experts at locating needed information."
 ReCaL will be available for a variety of hardware platforms and operating system environments. DOS and Microsoft Windows 3.x versions will be available for the IBM PC/AT. The UNIX/X Window version of ReCaL will support both OPEN LOOK and OSF Motif interfaces. ReCaL will also be available in SQL relational database format.
 ReCaL will be available in the fourth quarter of 1992 and will be updated quarterly.
