                                Altium strengthens leadership team for next step in Smart System Design Automation

                                Karlsruhe, Germany – 29 January 2013 – Altium Ltd., global leader in Smart System Design Automation and provider of solutions for 3D PCB design (Altium Designer) as well as embedded software development (TASKING), announces a global strategic change in its management team. The expanded corporate management team includes long-term Altium veterans Kayvan Oboudiyat (CEO), Aram Mirkazemi (CTO) and Frank Hoschar (CMO).

                                Under this new leadership Altium is set to deliver more value and a richer design experience to Altium users by further opening Altium’s next generation DXP development platform to third-party EDA and Non-EDA tool providers. This includes allowing third-parties to write apps for delivery in the Altium ecosystem, or extending their own ecosystem using Altium’s technologies.

                                In a move to strengthen customer relationships, the Altium team will also work closely with customers to co-create solutions and add value as part of an agile, customer centric strategy. Altium customers will be enabled to leverage the Embedded Internet by building and extending their web based ecosystems for their products and user communities.

                                The Altium DXP platform features the only consistent data model for smart System-on-Board design, a seamless flow for 3D PCB, FPGA and Embedded Software development. Worldwide, over 80,000 users have moved from tool chains to the Altium DXP platform.

                                “By opening our DXP platform and its wide user base to third-party developers, we aim to establish Altium as the emerging hub for the creation of lasting relationships in the Smart System Design Space,” comments Frank Hoschar, CMO Altium Ltd.

                                The calibre of the new leadership team in detail
