                                Altium and Valydate Announce Strategic Partnership with New Design Analysis and Verification Technology


                                San Diego, California – January 28, 2015

                                Altium Limited, a global leader in Electronic Design Automation and Valydate Inc., the leader in Schematic, Signal and Power Integrity analysis, today announced a strategic partnership aimed at easing the time-consuming visual inspection and debugging process of electronic schematics with ValydateVERA, a powerful design analysis and verification tool, which will integrate seamlessly with Altium Designer. This new technology will be unveiled January 27-29 at DesignCon 2015 and will aid in streamlining the design process and save designers countless hours from having to visually inspect schematics for errors.

                                “This is yet another exciting extension that expands the current electronics design environment in Altium Designer,” said Daniel Fernsebner, Director of Technical Partnerships for Altium. “Our partnership with Valydate is moving the design process forward with a new set of validation tools that will save designers countless hours and money in schematic inspection checks and streamline the entire design process for improved time-to-market.”

                                Rising Complexity of Electronics Design

                                The rising complexity of modern electronics design has ushered in a multiplying set of rules and verifications that must be manually checked at present for schematic design errors regardless of which design software they use. Throwing manual validation into the mix by a designer has a dramatic impact on time-to-market pressures and the fear of design respins due to missed errors.

                                ValydateVERA has effectively streamlined this entire process. With VERA’s integration in Altium Designer, designers can now automatically inspect their schematics against a pre-defined checklist that takes advantage of an intelligent component library that automatically checks for thousands of error violations in schematic designs.

                                “We’ve seen a steadily increasing number of customers working with complex designs who had no choice but to manually check their schematics for thousands of potential errors which adds up to countless wasted hours," said Jason Hingston, CTO at Altium. “This partnership with Valydate has extended the efficiency of schematic design in Altium Designer and paves a path to greater customer satisfaction and design reliability for all electronics designers.”

                                Moving the Design Process Forward

                                Like other extensions offered by third-party companies for Altium, ValydateVera integrates seamlessly in the electronics design environment in Altium Designer as an available plug-in for all customers. The product is expected to be available later this quarter.

                                Altium and Valydate will be demonstrating this new technology in Altium Designer on January 27-29 at DesignCon 2015 in Santa Clara, CA. Attendees are encouraged to drop by Altium booth #1034 for a live demonstration.
