According to Altium, the platform is poised to transform the electronics industry by bridging the gap between PCB designers, part suppliers, and manufacturers through seamless collaboration as the design evolves.
Altium 365 works with Altium Designer, the industry standard for PCB design and delivers an enhanced connected experience for PCB design and manufacturing, allowing design teams to drastically reduce miscommunication, re-design iterations, and time to market.
"A long-term change in the way that the various stakeholders in the electronics industry work together is taking place,” said Ted Pawela, Chief Operating Officer at Altium. “Whether working from home, office or traveling for business, the need to work from anywhere in the world without being tethered to your desktop is here to stay. Altium is paving the way for engineers and designers to work from anywhere, and connect with anyone by making the Altium Designer user experience more collaborative and more readily available than ever before.”
Altium 365 users can bring together the stakeholders and participants, while keeping their IPs secure and design under control. This cloud-based platform provides a completely new way to share, visualize, and mark-up PCB designs for all stakeholders involved, from design managers to manufacturers, while allowing other designers to connect to the same PCB design with Altium Designer to author changes.
Teams will be able to organise designs, libraries, and participants in one place, and share links to their designs for easy, real-time collaboration. Designs are always accessible at any time, on any device, anywhere. By leveraging CAD-specific intelligence, design data can be stored in a way that makes projects, files and version history accessible and easy to navigate on the web.
Altium 365 provides a built-in co-designer capability between electronic and mechanical domains through native integration with PTC Creo, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor.
It also helps streamline the manufacturing process. Designs can be packaged and shared with internal and external shareholders with just a simple web link that can be accessed via any platform on any internet-enabled device.
