FAQs

How does On-Demand licensing work?

Altium Designer's On-Demand licensing offers a global floating license capability, within the geographic scope of your license and the conditions set out in the EULA, without the need to implement your own dedicated server. This system provides a flexible, streamlined approach to licensing, allowing you to obtain a license in seconds, when and where you want it. For other license types, please contact your sales representative or chat with us.

Can I import my existing Design Data?

Yes! The Altium Designer import wizard allows you to import your legacy design data from other ECAD tools such as ORCAD, PADS, Expedition, Allegro, DxDesigner, Eagle, and Zuken CR-5000.

What is Altium 365?

Altium 365 is the electronics product design platform that unites PCB Design, MCAD, data management, and teamwork together like never before. Design, share, and manufacture, all in Altium Designer without changing a thing about how you already work.

What is included in the price?

You'll receive a perpetual or time-based license of Altium Designer plus a Standard Subscription plan, which includes access to Altium 365 and:

  • The latest design technology updates
  • 24/5 live chat support
  • Access to the AltiumLive community
What are my recurring costs after year one?

After your first year, in order to remain on subscription you will be charged an annual subscription fee.

Are other add-ons required?

No other add-ons are required. Altium does offer robust Component Management and a PDN Analyzer for Visual Power Analysis that requires additional licensing.
