Zuken expands PCB tool with SnapEDA models
Deal allows engineers to access millions of design models from SnapEDA within Zuken’s eCADSTAR PCB design tool

Zuken has added a new capability to its eCADSTAR PCB design tool that gives direct access to SnapEDA’s comprehensive online library. 

Using eCADSTAR’s embedded internet access, PCB designers can search and download from SnapEDA’s library of electronic component models. The models include symbols, footprints, and 3D models that can be placed directly into a PCB design. The streamlined download and place capability eliminates the time and effort required to create and verify the component library. Not only are important time savings realized by this new capability, but the component models are of a high quality benefitting the entire design process.

“Our partnership with SnapEDA builds upon eCADSTAR’s internet-friendly experience by  providing seamless connectivity from within the design tool. With its easy access and proprietary verification technology, SnapEDA provides a valuable extension to our eCADSTAR ecosystem. SnapEDA’s dedication to quality and industry standards is what Zuken’s professional user base requires to bring their products to market,” said Christopher Hambleton, General Manager of the Zuken Technology Centre Bristol.

All component downloads from SnapEDA are backed-up by a real-time quality report generated by SnapEDA’s patented verification technology. This feature helps build confidence and eliminate costly prototype iterations. In addition to finding CAD symbols, footprints, and 3D models, engineers will also be able to view datasheets and distributor stock levels and pricing.

Engineers accessing SnapEDA from eCADSTAR will also be able to use InstaPart to request parts that are unavailable for download. InstaPart is the industry’s original symbol and footprint request service, and is widely used by the world’s largest OEMs for professional-grade CAD models within 24 hours. Alternatively, engineers can build symbols free of charge using SnapEDA’s computer-vision builder, InstaBuild.
