TUALATIN, Ore. — June 27, 2018 — CUI today announced that it has teamed up with SnapEDA, ( https://www.snapeda.com/ ) the market-leading parts library for circuit board design, to provide designers with a catalog of free, ready-to-download PCB footprints and symbols for CUI’s range of board mount electromechanical components.
Circuit board design has historically been a time-consuming and challenging process due to the variety of product configurations and standards. With this partnership, users will be able to prevent footprint errors and design smarter, thanks to a library of verified PCB footprints and symbols readily available in all major CAD formats, including: Altium, Eagle, KiCad, OrCAD/Allegro, PADS/DxDesigner, and PCB123.
The files are free to download from CUI’s CAD model library ( https://www.cui.com/resources/
“This partnership with SnapEDA is a continuation of CUI’s mission to equip our customers with necessary design tools and resources at every stage of the product development cycle,” said Jeff Schnabel, CUI’s VP of Global Marketing. “The addition of these PCB footprint files bolsters CUI’s already extensive catalog of ready-made 3D models, further streamlining the design process for engineers,” Schnabel concluded.
“We are committed to building the industry’s largest, verified library of component models. Adding CUI and their broad portfolio of board level components to our catalog supplies yet another source from which engineers can gather PCB files for seamless integration into their designs,” stated Natasha Baker, CEO of SnapEDA.
SnapEDA is the Internet’s first and leading parts library for circuit board design. By providing ready-to-use building blocks for circuit board design via our website and plugins for PCB design tools, we shave days off product development, so that designers can focus on product optimization and innovation. Over half a million engineers use SnapEDA each year, evaluating nearly two million electronic components. These engineers are making everything from medical devices, to electric airplanes. SnapEDA is funded by Y Combinator and private investors.
