Panasonic and SnapEDA look to accelerate electronics design

1 min read

SnapEDA and Panasonic have collaborated on the release of a free collection of resources for electronics designers.

These new resources include computer-aided design (CAD) models for over 75,000 of Panasonic’s components which will allow engineers to make custom products with Panasonic’s electronics components more quickly and reliably.

“Our new collaboration brings thousands of new high quality CAD models to engineers, streamlining their design process and enabling them to move to scale faster and more reliably with Panasonic components” said Natasha Baker, Founder & CEO of SnapEDA.

The new models include schematic symbols and PCB footprints for electronics design, as well as 3D mechanical models to ensure proper mechanical clearances and design visualization. In addition to the CAD models themselves, engineers can also see a real-time report generated by SnapEDA’s patented verification technology, to gain instant transparency into manufacturability.

The CAD models cover Panasonic’s radial and surface mount resistors, capacitors and inductors. They are compatible with all major electronics and mechanical design tools.

The models are freely accessible to engineers via the SnapEDA website, as well as through its syndication partners which include Digi-Key, RSComponents’ DesignSpark, and Mouser.

These Panasonic CAD models are based on IPC-7351B, IEEE-315, and SnapEDA’s standards. Over 15 PCB design formats are supported including Altium, KiCad, Autodesk EAGLE & Fusion360, Cadence OrCAD & Allegro, Mentor PADS, DesignSpark, Pulsonix, DipTrace, Proteus and more..
