Mentor has teamed up with online components library SnapEDA, which now supports its PADS and DX Designer PCB design tools.

Mentor has teamed up with online components library SnapEDA, which now supports its PADS and DX Designer PCB design tools.

Users can access to SnapEDA’s component library containing millions of symbols, footprints, and 3D models.

All parts are auto-verified with SnapEDA’s proprietary verification technology.

“We’re seeing a shift in the industry where it’s no longer just large enterprises designing electronic products. Today, mid-size companies, startups, and even non-traditional companies, such as apparel companies, are making printed circuit boards,” said Natasha Baker, founder & CEO of SnapEDA.

These smaller design firms often don’t have dedicated librarians helping with parts creation. So there is an attraction in having the SnapEDA library available for PCB design tools.

And Mentor targets its PADS Product Creation platform at small teams and even individual users who are designing electronics systems.

Paul Musto, marketing director at Mentor, a Siemens Business, writes:

“These individuals are attempting to navigate the many disciplines of design, e.g. mechanical, electrical, software, and are encumbered with the creation of so many different parts and libraries. SnapEDA’s solution for providing electronic libraries through an open forum is a huge time and energy saver for this community of engineers.”
