We’re excited to announce that you can now find new symbols and footprints for over 100,000 Samtec products on SnapEDA!

Founded in 1976, Samtec is a privately held, $713MM global manufacturer of a broad line of electronic interconnect solutions. They’re among the most in-demand connector manufacturers on SnapEDA. 

With these new symbols & footprints, designers can now easily drag-and-drop thousands of headers, USB connectors, sockets, terminal strips, RF coaxial connectors and more into their designs, saving a lot of time.

As any engineer can tell you, connectors are one of the more frustrating categories of components to create CAD models for. Whether it’s properly interpreting their datasheets, or figuring out how to define non-circular holes and cutouts regions, they can be daunting to create.

The new Samtec symbols & footprints can be downloaded instantly, for free, and have been created by the Samtec Signal Integrity team. Samtec has made the files available for OrCad, Allegro, Eagle and PADS, and using SnapEDA’s translation technology, the files can also be downloaded for Altium, KiCad, PCB123, Proteus 8.8, and Pulsonix.

These detailed, high-quality models include accurate assembly, silkscreen and 3D features to support high-density applications. The footprints employ courtyards, built-in dimensioning, and applicable metadata.

Samtec’s product line includes everything from IC to board/ultra micro, high speed board-to-board, high speed cables, future proof/active optics, flexible stacking, and micro/rugged components and cables.
