It has been announced by CUI that it has teamed up with SnapEDA, to provide designers with a catalogue 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. The aim of this partnership is to enable users 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 and product pages, or via the SnapEDA website, where they can then be placed directly into a product’s design.
Jeff Schnabel, CUI’s VP of Global Marketing, stated: “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. The addition of these PCB footprint files bolsters CUI’s already extensive catalogue of ready-made 3D models, further streamlining the design process for engineers.”
Natasha Baker, CEO of SnapEDA, added: “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 catalogue supplies yet another source from which engineers can gather PCB files for seamless integration into their designs.”
