SnapEDA expands its design library, community


Toronto-based SnapEDA Inc. has introduced new export support for its computer-aided design (CAD) library and community, as it now supports Cadence OrCAD/Allegro and Pulsonix.

SnapEDA accelerates the electronic design process for thousands of professional designers and engineers around the world by providing a library of millions of CAD building blocks they can build on top of to design better products faster. By exporting to popular CAD tools, SnapEDA complements existing workflows, providing engineers with an instant productivity boost in their design tool of choice.

SnapEDA recently announced its support of its vast CAD library for Cadence OrCAD/Allegro and Pulsonix users. These new export formats join existing support for Altium, CadSoft Eagle, and KiCad. In the quickly growing Internet of Things (IoT) market, electronic devices are proliferating and diversifying, and time-to-market is becoming more crucial than ever for electronics companies looking to stay competitive.

“At the heart of every connected device is a printed circuit board, and designers need faster, more efficient ways to bring them to life to keep up with the fast pace of innovation,” says Natasha Baker, founder and CEO of SnapEDA.

With SnapEDA, engineers save time by downloading CAD building blocks instantly, rather than designing them from scratch. This allows them to focus on optimizing their designs, and innovating better products. To ensure quality, SnapEDA pairs powerful algorithms that run a diagnostic test on each CAD building block, with a rating system that allows engineers to vet the quality of CAD parts.

“Engineers need accurate data they can trust. At SnapEDA, the vast majority of our technology in development revolves around making sure engineers feel confident with their design data,” adds Garret Fick, co-founder and CTO of SnapEDA.
