                                Altium Designer now with Live Links to Polish Distributor Transfer Multisort Elektronik (TME)

                                Altium Launches supply chain data link to TME’s extensive electronic component catalog allowing designers to specify components directly within the design environment.

                                Karlsruhe, Germany - 23 October 2013  –  Altium Limited, a global leader in Smart System Design Automation, 3D PCB design (Altium Designer) and embedded software development (TASKING) announces the cooperation with Polish distributor Transfer Multi Sort Elektronik (TME), one of the biggest electronic components distributors in Central and Eastern Europe.

                                A key to any design is the search for these required circuit components – what is available? What functionality is offered? How much does it cost? How about the lead time? Often, a comparison between multiple suppliers will be undertaken, ensuring the best 'deal' is achieved for the 'building blocks' required by the design. While a printed catalog faithfully obliges with content as you fan its copious pages, to have such information at your fingertips, live as you design, and linked to the components themselves, is a far more attractive proposition.

                                To help electronic designers make the right decision in shorter time, Altium has added TME to the extensive list of live supplier search capabilities in Altium Designer with their new version, Altium Designer 14. The live link to TME's online component catalog allows designers to make better upfront component selections and design decisions. By searching for components with a complete understanding of cost and availability, overall BOM costs can be better controlled leading to cost savings. Visibility of component stock level helps to avoid unexpected delays when going to production. Because the TME's online catalog can be searched at any point during the design flow, wasted time spent in design revisions due to cost control or availability challenges can be avoided completely.

                                "As one of Europe's most innovative companies and Poland's leading distributor of electronic components, TME's commitment to supporting the electronics design industry is what drew us to add support for their extensive online component catalog", noted Frank Krämer, Director of Global Solution Marketing & Partnerships for Altium.

                                The online component catalog link also improves designer productivity by allowing key technical data about components from TME's catalog to be automatically embedded in the design itself. At release time, procurement and buying staff can be provided with a BOM that includes TME's part numbers to facilitate ease of ordering.

                                When using vault-based components, the link to the online component catalog can be managed across an entire design team. Supplier and component alternatives can controlled and managed allowing for a much smooth flow from design team to procurement and production teams.

                                By allowing designers to make component selections which balance the technical requirements with the supply chain implications at design time, benefits are recognized across the entire company.
