View the datasheet revision that was used to create the symbol and footprint

 

New Feature

  

Datasheets occasionally change which makes it challenging for engineers to keep track of which revision a CAD model is based on. These changes can include mechanical dimensions and electrical pinouts, which will affect the CAD models.

To help engineers better validate CAD data, we have now added the datasheet revision in our automated verification checker. With this new feature, engineers will now have transparency into the exact datasheet revision used to create the CAD models, with an aim of preventing errors during the manufacturing process.

To prevent errors, engineers should always validate the CAD model they are using against the specific datasheet revision of their product.

To check the datasheet revision for a part:

  1. Go to the part page. You can try this example.
  2. Scroll down and click on Verification.
  3. A banner will appear under the Verification Checker indicating the Datasheet Revision used.

New mobile experience delivers CAD models to your desktop

 

Improvement

  

If you’ve ever browsed SnapEDA from your mobile device, you’ll be pleased to know that you can now request symbols, footprints, and 3D models to be sent to your email. This way, when you’re ready to design your PCB at your desktop, you’ll have the CAD models you need ready to go. Once you receive the email, simply import it into your CAD tool to jump straight to design.

To get started, go to the part page you want to use, click Download, and select your preferred format, as you normally would. On mobile, you’ll now see the option to enter your email upon download, once submitted you will receive an email with the respective files.
