Open parts libraries gain SnapEDA models

Electronics designers can now access SnapEDA CAD models from within Seeed’s Fusion and Shenzhen Open Parts Libraries (OPLs). Intended for use with the Seeed Fusion PCB Assembly service, the OPLs are a collection of more than 150,000 commonly used components, ranging from ICs to passives. The libraries help designers move from idea to fabrication, while cutting costs and reducing turnaround times for turnkey PCB assembly.

Library parts are carefully selected to ensure they are widely available in the local supply chain, eliminating the need to import parts and undergo lengthy and costly clearance processes. Over 15 PCB design formats are accessible with the SnapEDA incorporation, including Altium, KiCad, Fusion 360, Cadence Allegro, OrCAD, Eagle, DesignSpark PCB, DipTrace, and Proteus.

With this added integration, you can download SnapEDA-approved symbol, footprint, and 3D models right from the OPL into the PCB CAD software of your choice. Simply choose your parts in the OPL. If SnapEDA-approved CAD data is available, a Symbol, Footprint, 3D Model link will be available under the Downloads column. A viewer pops up that allows models to be previewed and downloaded instantly. You will need to login or register a SnapEDA account to complete the download.
