SAN FRANCISCO – SnapEDA is launching a Chrome extension to allow electronics designers to find CAD models on every distributor website.

The SnapEDA Chrome extension automatically notifies designers when a CAD model is available. The CAD model can then be added to a desktop printed circuit board design tool with one click.

The extension pairs with the new SnapEDA Desktop application, which creates a bridge between the web for component research and the desktop design environment. It provides three types of CAD models: schematic symbols, PCB footprints and 3D models. Supported formats include Eagle, Altium and KiCad. More are coming soon.

The SnapEDA Chrome extension is helpful on websites that haven’t joined the SnapEDA Syndication Network.

The SnapEDA Chrome extension is free and can be downloaded at
