SnapEDA collaborates with Abracon to release 13,000 new symbols, footprints, and 3D models to help engineers design faster. These new CAD models include coverage for crystals, oscillators, and inductors.
Abracon is an industry leader in passive components. Their products include frequency control devices, antennas, and connectivity solutions. With these new free, ready-to-use resources, engineers can now get a productivity boost for their designs. They can download the models from SnapEDA as well as from SnapEDA’s affiliated partners, such as Digikey and Mouser.
The libraries, created and verified by SnapEDA’s Component Engineering team, are based on IPC-7351B, IEEE-315, and SnapEDA’s standards. These are compatible with over 15 PCB design formats, including Altium, KiCad, Autodesk EAGLE & Fusion360, Cadence OrCAD & Allegro, Mentor PADS, DesignSpark, Pulsonix, DipTrace, Proteus, and more.
The new models bring the total coverage of Abracon’s products on SnapEDA to over 58,000.
