    University of Tokyo chooses Altium Designer for satellite programme

    Altium Designer to launch the next generation of electronics designers

    Sydney Australia – January 17, 2008 – Altium Limited, the leading developer of unified electronic product design solutions, has secured a deal with the University of Tokyo’s Intelligent Space Systems Laboratory (ISSL) to become the electronics design platform for its satellite development programme.

    ISSL has recently installed five Altium Designer licenses for use in its student satellite projects. The aim of the programme is to lower the cost and development time of space research by creating a range of sophisticated nanosatellites (satellites smaller than 10kg) for use in high performance missions.

    Students at ISSL will use Altium Designer’s unified platform, which combines hardware, software and programmable hardware, to develop the onboard computers and subsystem interfaces found within their various satellite designs.

    “With Altium Designer we can reduce the student workload of developing electronics, including FPGAs. The simulation tools will be very useful for the evaluation of the designed circuits, reducing the possibility of mistakes,” commented Prof. Shinichi Nakasuka, Director of ISSL. “Altium Designer will reduce development times and costs for nano-satellites and deliver the best design environment for students at various levels of expertise”.

    ISSL is currently completing its third and fourth satellites. The third, PRISM, is a 5kg remote sensing satellite with enhanced bus functions and a refraction-based optical system. The fourth, “Nano-JASMINE,” is an astrometry satellite that can create precise 3D star maps and was developed in collaboration with the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan.

    Altium continues to play an important role in the development of the next generation of electronics engineers, with a particularly strong presence in university space programs. Universities such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Toronto, Aachen University and Tokyo Institute of Technology all use Altium Designer to create the next generation of space system engineers, while over 900 universities in total employ Altium as their software tool of choice.
