Samtec releases over 100,000 new models on SnapEDA

Today, Samtec is releasing new digital models for over 100,000 of its products on SnapEDA, the industry-leading circuit board design library.

 

Traditionally, designers have spent days creating digital models - such as symbols and footprints - for each component in their designs. Connectors are especially time-consuming to create models for, due to their non-standard shapes, pitches, pads, and cutouts.

 

With this new collaboration, designers can now easily discover, download, and design with over 100,000 ready-to-use Samtec connector models, helping accelerate the design process. The new models include USB, card edge, board-to-board, headers, and RF coaxial connectors.

 

Created by Samtec’s Signal Integrity Team, these detailed, high-quality models include accurate assembly, silkscreen and 3D features to support high density applications. The footprints employ courtyards, built-in dimensioning, and applicable metadata.

 

“We pride ourselves on being the service leader, which means investing the time and energy into providing models that expedite the design process for SnapEDA users,” said Greg Horlick, ECAD Systems Architect, at Samtec.

 

Downloading the printed circuit board (PCB) models is simple: designers create a free account on the SnapEDA website, and then can download for free. Samtec has made the files available for OrCad, Allegro, Eagle and PADS, and using SnapEDA’s translation technology, the files can also be downloaded for Altium, KiCad, PCB123, Proteus 8.8, and Pulsonix.

 

“Samtec is one of the most in-demand connector manufacturers on SnapEDA, so we know that designers will benefit greatly from these new PCB libraries to bring their products to life faster,” said Natasha Baker, CEO and Founder of SnapEDA.

 

“Their commitment to quality and compliance ensures the reliability that professionals on our platform are looking for in their connectivity solutions.”

 

“SnapEDA has a trusted reputation in the market for quality, which makes them an excellent partner for Samtec. Together, we’re ensuring that engineers can quickly discover and more easily design Samtec parts into their systems. Our model library is constantly expanding, and we’ve been wowed by the speed and support SnapEDA has provided in delivering these to their users,” said Daniel Williams, Digital Marketing Director, at Samtec.
