SnapEDA component library incorporated into DesignSpark

23 June 2021 Design Automation

RS Components has integrated the SnapEDA electronic component library and search engine into its award-winning DesignSpark PCB CAD platform. The new search capability gives engineers easy access to free CAD models of millions of electronic components, significantly reducing design times.

SnapEDA provides free access to the essential building blocks for electronic design, including schematic symbols, PCB footprints and 3D models created using proprietary creation, verification and translation technology. As the industry’s only vendor-agnostic search engine, it helps over 750 000 professional engineers each year to discover and design-in devices selected from a comprehensive component library.

RS’ award winning DesignSpark platform is a suite of free-to-use rapid PCB prototyping tools offering schematics unlimited in number and size, unlimited layers, nodes, pads and connections, integration with RS parts libraries, a library editor to create custom libraries and integration with free DesignSpark mechanical and electrical CAD systems.

The SnapEDA online component library on DesignSpark is searchable by entering either a known part number or one or more keywords. CAD models are downloaded for free and can be imported directly into DesignSpark or virtually any other major PCB CAD tool. Datasheets, full specifications, price checks and component sales are available through RS.

Besides DesignSpark, supported CAD formats include Altium, KiCad, Fusion360, Cadence Allegro, OrCAD, Eagle, Pulsonix, DipTrace, Proteus, ExpressPCB Plus, CircuitStudio, PADS, PCB123, Target 3001! and P-CAD.

SnapEDA can be accessed via the DesignSpark website at www.rs-online.com/designspark/snapeda-parts-finder#/
