Autodesk Buys Circuits.io for Circuit Design Market Push; Samir Hanna Comments

New Autodesk Logo 1Audodesk (NASDAQ: ADSK) has purchased Circuits.io for an undisclosed amount as part of moves to expand product offerings in electronic circuit design and simulation.

Circuits.io’s technology and development team offers web-based applications and collaboration tools for a community of circuit designers, innovators and entrepreneurs, Autodesk said Monday.

“The rise in affordable, programmable microprocessors like the Arduino, paired with components like sensors and input/output boards, are creating new opportunity for gadget makers and inventors,” said Samir Hanna, vice president at Autodesk Consumer Group.

“We are excited to welcome the Circuits.io team and community to Autodesk, and look forward to developing new tools to help these users unlock their creativity,” he added.

Autodesk already uses Circuits.io’s circuit simulator for the 123D Circuits app, which was released in September 2013.

The acquisition will see all Circuits.io accounts migrated to 123D.
