                                Altium Announces Major Update to Flagship PCB Design Tool at Annual Conference

                                

                                Santa Clara, Calif. – 15, September, 2015

                                Altium Limited is announcing the next major update to their flagship PCB design tool, Altium Designer, at PCB West, an annual PCB design conference in Santa Clara, California. Attendees at PCB West 2015 will get an exclusive first look at all of the new features coming to Altium Designer 16 before its scheduled release in the fall. This update will allow engineers to get their designs done even faster and error-free with the addition of new automation and productivity tools.

                                “The increasing complexity of today’s electronic designs requires the most productive design environment for engineers to remain competitive,” said Christopher Donato, VP Americas at Altium. “Our focus for this release is to provide PCB designers with the most productive and efficient PCB design platform available to meet the demands of every engineering challenge.”

                                Pushing Productivity Further

                                As a long time sponsor of PCB West, this year Altium will be unveiling all of the new features available in Altium Designer 16 to attendees. Visitors to Altium at booth 311 will have the opportunity to demo all of the new productivity and automation features in this major update, including:

                                • A new alternative part choice system allows designers to fully control their component selection process with backup part choices for manufacturing.
                                • Visual clearance boundaries allow designers to understand the impact of their routing decisions in real-time with visual clearance boundaries between objects on a board.
                                • A new component placement system allows designers to create the most organized and efficient board layouts with new component placement options.

                                "The new features we’ve developed in Altium Designer 16 reflect our commitment to the on-going value and growth of the Altium Designer platform,” said Sergey Kostinsky, VP of Engineering at Altium. “This release furthers our goal of creating the best design tool for mainstream PCB designers who need to meet increasingly tight deadlines and budget."
