CUI Partners with SnapEDA to Offer Free PCB Footprint Files

TUALATIN, Ore.  — CUI announced that it has teamed up with SnapEDA, a parts library for circuit board design, to provide designers with a catalog of free, ready-to-download PCB footprints and symbols for CUI’s range of board mount electromechanical components.

Circuit board design has historically been a time-consuming and challenging process due to
the variety of product configurations and standards. With this partnership, users will be able
to prevent footprint errors and design smarter, thanks to a library of verified PCB footprints
and symbols readily available in all major CAD formats, including: Altium, Eagle, KiCad,
OrCAD/Allegro, PADS/DxDesigner, and PCB123.

The files are free to download from CUI’s CAD model library and product pages, or via the
SnapEDA website, where they can then be placed directly into a product’s design.

“This partnership with SnapEDA is a continuation of CUI’s mission to equip our customers with necessary design tools and resources at every stage of the product development cycle,” said Jeff Schnabel, CUI’s VP of Global Marketing. “The addition of these PCB footprint files bolsters CUI’s already extensive catalog of ready-made 3D models, further streamlining the design process for engineers,” Schnabel concluded.

“We are committed to building the industry’s largest, verified library of component models. Adding CUI and their broad portfolio of board level components to our catalog supplies yet
another source from which engineers can gather PCB files for seamless integration into their
designs,” stated Natasha Baker, CEO of SnapEDA.
