Engineers use Digi-Key to find and purchase components for their designs. As a next step in the engineer’s journey, they typically need CAD models for these components.

With this collaboration, engineers can access SnapEDA’s high quality CAD models directly on Digi-Key’s website, further streamlining their design flow.

SnapEDA differentiates itself in the market with its focus on quality, innovation, and user experience. Just this year, SnapEDA’s verification technology - which is used to vet the quality of each model - was granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

“Our users love using Digi-Key to find and purchase parts, and they’ve told us they want better integration with SnapEDA models,” said Natasha Baker, CEO & Founder of SnapEDA. “By providing CAD models right when engineers are exploring components on the Digi-Key website, we can further streamline the design flow to help better serve engineers.”

"We’ve been working with SnapEDA since 2017. They have been a great partner for Digi-Key, dedicated to providing engineers with high quality part models. We’re excited to continue growing the collaboration," said Cody Walseth, Digital Product Owner at Digi-Key. "Our goal is to offer the parts and resources our customers need so they can spend more time on innovation and design.”
