Mechanical CoDesign

Turn electronic and mechanical collaboration challenges into a competitive advantage by seamlessly working across domains without loss of intent or time. Bi-directional data transfer between your ECAD and MCAD tools makes it easy to collaborate with your mechanical team and share design revisions as they happen. Native integration with Inventor®, SOLIDWORKS® and PTC Creo® is up to 10x faster than your typical error-prone data exchange methods.

Data Management and
Version Control

All your libraries and design data are in one secure workspace with granular access control so everyone has access to the right design data at the right time. The system is built with the Git version control system under the hood and optimized for hardware development. Enjoy full traceability and transparency by knowing who made changes to the project, when, and why. Quickly identify what changed with a visual diff designed specically for hardware. Easily revert to previous version if needed, and never wonder again whether the “v4_final2” is truely the final version.

Library Management

Altium 365 Library Management hero

The components library is one of your most valuable design assets. Ensure its integrity and manage your components in one central and secure location so that everyone working on a board design can use the same set of validated components. Component templates standardize the components creation process, ensuring all the required parameters are populated. With defined component lifecycles, your team always knows which components can be used in a design and which ones are obsolete.

Supply Chain Management

Bridge the gap between engineering and procurement. With BOM Management, procurement and purchasing teams can actively participate in the design decisions throughout the entire development lifecycle. Proactively reduce risk and manage costs by automatically enriching your BOM with up-to-date price and availability data, manufacturer life cycle information, and alternative part choices. Altium 365 integrates with with leading parts data providers: Octopart, SiliconExpert, and S&P Global (formerly IHS Markit).

Manufacturing Collaboration

Eliminate costly and time-consuming miscommunications with manufacturing with version-controlled release packages that can be shared in a single click. Your manufacturing partner can view and comment on output data directly in a browser, without having to install any additional software. With all of your manufacturing files stored in one centralized location, you’ll have everything you need for a successful production run within easy reach.
