                                College students rev up eco, solar and autocross designs using Altium Designer

                                SYDNEY, Australia – June 29, 2010 – Electronic design software company Altium is doing its part to help college students from across North America develop the next wave of automobiles from eco friendly and solar to high-performance. This month, collegiate engineering teams from Missouri University Science & Tech, University of Minnesota, and McMaster University will put their creations – created with the aid of Altium Designer -- to the test against other teams in North America and abroad.

                                “In competitions like these, real-world pressures are often magnified. Everyone is short of time. Repairs are constant, as is fine-tuning,” said Matt Schwaiger, senior vice president of global customer success at Altium. “So it’s great to help tomorrow’s professional engineers innovate before they’re even out of college.”

                                Students at Missouri University Science & Tech are in the second year of the three- year EcoCAR Challenge. Using Altium Designer, they developed a prototype advanced technology vehicle designed to decrease emissions and increase fuel efficiency. Vehicles will be judged in categories similar to the vehicle categories from the California Air Resources Board zero emissions vehicle regulations. The Twitter hashtag for the competition is #ecocar.

                                Every two years, members of the University of Minnesota Solar Vehicle Project (UMNSVP) research, design, and construct a solar vehicle to race against entries from around the world in the 2010 American Solar Challenge. Building off years of work done by previous teams, the team used Altium’s solution to redesign all of the electrical systems on the car with an eye towards reliability and ease of maintenance. “We’re driving over 1,200 miles so the car has to be efficient and reliable,” said Nate Bolyard, UMNSVP Electrical Team Lead. “The car has about 10 discrete systems and each has up to four boards designed with Altium Designer. The software helped us make the car's system really modular and helped with mechanical integration, so inevitably when we have to stop and service the car it’ll be easy to switch things out.”

                                The Formula SAE Team at McMaster University conceived, designed, and fabricated a small, formula-style, autocross racing car that will compete against almost 80 other teams this spring. These high-performance cars are judged in terms of acceleration, braking, and handling qualities at Formula SAE competitions across the U.S.

                                More information on Altium Designer is on Altium’s web site. More detailed information on Altium Designer and the new NanoBoard 3000 is at the Altium Wiki.
