Hirose Electric partners with SnapEDA, the first search engine for electronic design. SnapEDA provides over 1,000 symbols and footprints for Hirose products. March 7, 2023
HIROSE Electric Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Japan), a manufacturer specializing in connectors, and SnapEDA (Headquarters: San Francisco, USA), the internet's first search engine for electronic design, have partnered to release more than 1,000 ready-to use symbols and footprints for a variety of Hirose’s PCB mountable connectors.
● Required Reduction of Man-hours for Design
During the circuit board design process, engineers must create a digital model for each mounted component. This is a time-consuming task, which hinders a smooth product development cycle.
● Contribute to Fast Design and Development
The partnership includes data on over 1,000 symbols and footprints including board-to-board connectors and FPC connectors of Hirose products. This enables designers to easily search for their desired product on SnapEDA and instantly download the data they need, free of charge (SnapEDA membership is required). The digital models are available in over 15 PCB design formats, including Altium, KiCad, Autodesk EAGLE and Fusion 360, OrCAD and Allegro, Proteus, PADS, and more. This collaboration helps streamline and reduce design time, allowing engineers to focus on innovation and development.
● Future Development
Hirose Electric aims to expand the data available on SnapEDA. The company remains committed to provide connector solutions and services that help customers design their products more efficiently.
