How do I obtain PCB Layout models/libraries (for Altium / Eagle CAD / DesignSpark etc.)?

Harwin have partnered with Samacsys, a leading supplier of 2D schematics, PCB footprints and 3D models, to bring you the resources you need for designing our components on your boards. Every product page features a link to the Samacsys library – details are given below.

If you prefer to program your own board layout, all our PCB components provide the necessary PCB layout dimensions on their Technical Drawings, for you to create your own layouts.

How to find the Model

On the product page, you will see a Samacsys logo located just under the introduction text and Samples/Availability buttons. Depending on the existing availability of models, it could be one of a selection of buttons:

Samacsys Button Logos

Clicking on this button will present a popup window (see image right). Some products have already been processed and have the layouts, models and schematics ready to download – others you may need to request using the Samacsys interface.

Downloading the files

To download the required files, you will need to register with Samacsys. If you have already registered on their core site (ComponentSearchEngine.com), you can use the same login information here.

Once logged in, you can download the applicable files you require. For more information on the Samacsys file types and suitable CAD systems, please consult the Samacsys help pages:

Footprints on Harwin Technical Drawings

Technical Drawings are located on the individual product pages.

  • Use the search at the top of the site to find the item you require.
  • The link to the Technical Drawing will be in the lower half of the page, in the Downloads / Technical Documents box.

If you have any difficulties finding the PCB layout you need on a Harwin drawing, please use the Contact form to talk to our Webmaster Team.
