Altium is saying to OrCAD® Capture users and those using antiquated point-tool solutions, that they no longer have to feel trapped in the old "divide & conquer" design paradigm or be limited by their tool's scope. They can now secure their future with a low risk path into Altium's unified design solution, and start designing next generation electronic products using a holistic approach to the development task.
Altium believes that the protection of intellectual property (IP) should no longer be seen as a primary issue in China. Chinese businesses, supported by the government, are seeking out and are willing to pay for the best in the market to create economic leadership for the long-term.
Altium will be providing its next generation electronics design solution to the Centro Universitário Salesiano (UNISAL) in Brazil, in an agreement signed with UNISAL's São Jose Campus in Campina.
