• NC Pins in Integrated Circuits

    October 5, 2020 The SnapEDA Team

    NC pins, also called unconnected or no-connect pins, are IC terminals with no internal connection and no external function.  These are some of the most commonly used pin names for unconnected pins and how you’ll find them in component datasheets:* NC = No-Connect* DNC = Do Not Connect* DNU = Do Not Use What are…

  • Using IEEE Symbols

    September 23, 2020 The SnapEDA Team

    What is IEEE? IEEE (pronounced as I, triple E) stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. This is an association that develops design-based, functional standards to follow in the electronics design industry. At SnapEDA, we create symbols based on IEEE 315-1975 standard (as well as ANSI, CSA and IEC approved symbols) and our own internal…

  • Schematic Symbols for Integrated Circuits

    July 20, 2020 The SnapEDA Team

    Pin naming, pin setting, and pin arrangement are the 3 most important factors to consider in creating a good symbol for your IC devices, being the primary element in schematic drawings. These factors will help designers create a direct and functional design to produce the desired electrical behavior. At SnapEDA, after many years of feedback…

  • Export to Pulsonix is Live!

    June 25, 2015 natasha

    Last Fall, we announced that we would be adding support for Pulsonix. This month, we’re pleased to say that it’s live and ready to go! Pulsonix, developed by UK-based WestDev, is a professional schematic capture, simulation, and PCB layout tool known for it’s ease-of-use, and also as one of the first PCB design tools to…
