Nexar, SnapEDA Announce Partnership to Increase CAD Model Library Collections in PCB Design Workflows


Reading time ( words)

Nexar, a business unit of Altium LLC announced that SnapEDA has joined Nexar’s growing ecosystem of electronics innovators. As a Nexar partner, SnapEDA will make available their library of computer-aided design (CAD) models to enhance printed circuit board (PCB) design and innovation. The Nexar ecosystem streamlines PCB design workflows to bring tools like CAD models into a single, unified experience.

​​SnapEDA’s platform helps engineers download ready-to-use CAD symbols, footprints, and 3D models.

“SnapEDA is tailored to the needs of professional engineers to find the CAD design resources they need to bring new products to life quickly,” explains Natasha Baker, founder and CEO of SnapEDA. “We are partnering with Nexar as we share a common vision to improve our industry’s PCB design and part selection workflows.” 

“Adding SnapEDA electronics design libraries means PCB designers won’t have to change their current workflows to access content that’s meaningful to getting their jobs done,” said Ted Pawela, Chief Ecosystem of Altium and Head of Nexar. “Octopart, part of the Nexar ecosystem, will be the first to launch this integration. Octopart users will have the ability to search and access 10 million electronic component models that are compatible with nearly all major PCB design tools.”

Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

Hard to believe that a year ago, I was getting ready to attend DesignCon and IPC APEX EXPO and wondering if this Novel Coronavirus was going to cut into attendance from the Pacific Rim. Now, we’re accustomed to virtual trade shows. They’re not ideal, but they’re the best we can do while meeting in person is not possible. We’ve learned to adapt.
