1 min read

Altium has announced that Upverter, its browser-based electronics design environment, is now officially a part of the Coral Partnership Program.

Engineers and product designers will now be able to use Upverter to create and manufacture hardware-accelerated AI boards more easily.

Upverter is a web-based electronics design environment for creating and manufacturing electronics systems and printed circuit boards, all from a single application. Users can design custom carrier boards and order them directly from the Upverter environment. Custom carrier boards are pre-tested, manufactured, and shipped directly to customers.

Current members of the Coral Partnership Program include: Asus, Mouser Electronics, and Arrow.

Commenting on the announcement Ted Pawela, Chief Ecosystem Officer said, "We’re excited to see what our users create by combining Upverter’s web-based, modular design technology with the power of Coral artificial intelligence.”

Coral, from Google, helps bring on-device AI application ideas from prototype to production with hardware components, software tools, and pre-compiled models.

According to Billy Rutledge, Director of the Coral team at Google, “Coral is dedicated to making AI more accessible. Upverter’s powerful design tool makes the benefits of integrating Coral technology more accessible to the engineers and product designers developing solutions. We believe that together, we can empower AI solutions to build a more resilience and are excited to have Upverter join us in our mission.”

Upverter features multiple design templates, which now include a new series of embedded board designs that work with Coral Intelligence. These templates can be easily copied and customised in Upverter.

Featured boards designed with Coral Intelligence include the CM4 Pixhawk FMUv6U and PoE Smart Camera.
