    Expand Supply Chain Control During PCB Design
    10 July 2017

    Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are the heart and soul of many electronic devices, but the complexity of PCB design, procurement, and manufacturing processes creates many opportunities for failure issues. In addition, organizational silos that exist between design engineering, manufacturing engineering, and procurement can exacerbate these risks.

    Altium Focuses on the Designer First
    22 May 2017

    A few months before joining Altium, Judy Warner sat down with Lawrence Romine to discuss the company’s drive to satisfy the individual PCB designer, and not necessarily the OEMs who employ them.

    Ensuring functional safety in embedded software
    17 May 2017

    For those of us in the automotive segment of embedded software, the success – or failure – of our companies depends heavily on meeting safety requirements. If we do not develop code using proven development methods to insure safety, at best we will go out of business; at worst, we could cause destruction of property, injury, or even death. As automobiles evolve toward autonomously driven vehicles, functional safety of hardware and software is the paramount concern of software developers, engineers, managers, and executives. Without uncompromised safety, there will be no autonomous vehicles.
