Nexar and SnapEDA Announce Partnership to Increase CAD Model Library Collections in PCB Design Workflows
SAN DIEGO, December 2, 2021 -- Nexar, a business unit of Altium LLC (ASX:ALU) announced today 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.”
Octopart is an electronic part search engine powered by part data and intelligence from the Nexar API. For more information about Octopart, visit www.octopart.com. The SnapEDA CAD library will be available in December 2021.
