                                Heidelberg Instruments standardises on Altium solutions for next generation lithography systems


                                Altium’s unified design solution brings FPGA programming, design reuse documentation into a single design environment

                                SYDNEY, Australia - October 6, 2008 – Altium, the leading developer of unified electronic product development solutions, has announced that Heidelberg Instruments GmbH has selected Altium as its electronics design standard. Altium’s solution will be used across all electronics design teams at Heidelberg Instruments’ R&D headquarters located in Heidelberg, Germany.

                                Electronics designers at Heidelberg will use Altium to develop key components for the next generation of its direct writing laser lithography systems. These systems will use a focused laser beam to write submicron structures on semiconductor substrates, with areas ranging from a few milllimetres to four square metres.

                                In addition to high precision mechanical and optical components, a large range of specialized electronic components is needed for the systems. These modules are highly sensitive analog sensor amplifiers, high current motor drivers, and boards to generate and to amplify RF signals. Former solutions worked with small scale CPLD devices, but to increase the data rate and volume, Heidelberg will now use FPGAs from multiple suppliers. The purpose is to generate pixel data for the substrate design, which can be up to several terabytes.

                                “The design process for FPGA devices in BGA housings will be dramatically accelerated by using the unified design environment provided by Altium. With our old software tools, several time consuming steps were needed to do pin swapping in a design. This can now be done up to ten times faster,“ comments Roland Kaplan, Vice President of Research and Development at Heidelberg Instruments. “Another reason for choosing Altium Designer is the easy import of our old designs and the support of FPGAs already in use.”

                                Altium supports innovative product development through its unified design methodology. By bringing together the various disciplines of design, electronics engineers have a complete off the shelf solution that frees design from the documentation and formatting constraints of traditional point tools. This approach means engineers can focus on the value-adding aspects of design and deliver differentiated products to market.

                                “Real product differentiation lies in the development of intelligent devices, so it’s wonderful to see a respected innovator, such as Heidelberg Instruments, really embrace Altium’s unified design concept,” comments Frank Hoschar, Managing Director and VP Sales & Support EMEA, Altium. “By bringing together all of the design disciplines, Heidelberg Instruments can now focus on device intelligence and the elements of design that make a lasting impression.”
