SnapEDA becomes SnapMagic and debuts an AI copilot to help automate circuit board design

SnapEDA, a platform for electrical engineers to easily access electric component data, is rebranding as SnapMagic and introducing a new suite of features that could be a game changer for electronics design. If you’re an electrical engineer, you’ve likely heard of (or use) SnapEDA. The platform has been around for a decade, with a user base of over 1.5 million engineers globally and partnerships with some of the largest component suppliers in the world, including Texas Instruments, Samtec and TE Connectivity. The company was founded by electrical engineer Natasha Baker, who was constantly frustrated by the slow, inefficient processes to build even a simple circuit board. One of the most labor-intensive parts of the job involved creating digital models of each component on the board – a process that could take weeks to finish, depending on the complexity of the design. She launched SnapEDA in 2013 as a third-party digital model database and joined Y Combinator as part of the summer 2015 cohort. But the company doesn’t want to stop there – hence the rebrand …
