    Altium Previews "First Step" in Connecting Electronics Design to the Manufacturing Floor
    

    San Diego, Calif. - October 4, 2018 - Today at the AltiumLive 2018: Annual PCB Design Summit, Altium announced its new cloud infrastructure that facilitates better, more connected collaboration across all design and product realization disciplines. Altium 365, a cloud-based platform, is the first step in directly connecting desktop printed circuit board (PCB) design with the manufacturing floor. With availability targeted for December 2018, Altium 365 seamlessly integrates with Altium Designer 19 and leverages the power of cloud to connect designers, component distributors, and manufacturing stakeholders and makes it easy and convenient to share information and design collaboratively.

    With the vision of one day providing designers with real-time feedback on the manufacturability of their designs directly from manufacturing equipment, Altium 365 allows designers to share working schematics and 3D board designs with manufacturers who can comment and markup designs in real time using only a web browser. This accelerates the process of going from design concept to manufactured board.

    “Today I have to release a design in flat files, spreadsheets, and images, send it to a manufacturer, and wait two days to get something back — in yet another format — that tells me how to adjust my design so that they can build it,” said Jeremy Blum, director of hardware at Shaper Tools. “And for every design I generally have to do that 3 or 4 times.”

    Altium 365 makes it easy to keep product design and manufacturing in sync. Designers simply share any design with a manufacturing partner, and that partner can interact with the design from any device, on any operating system, and guide the designer towards choices that will assure that the board is manufacturable.

    Component pricing and availability is another common issue that slows product development.

    “Everyone who designs has experienced selecting a part that literally seems to disappear from every distributor in the world when they send it to be manufactured,” said Blum. “That forces you to make more changes and waste more time.”

    Altium 365 — powered by Octopart — provides a live connection between the manufacturing bill of materials (BOM) and component data, to help guide designers toward using parts that meet cost, availability, and lead-time constraints.

    “This is an important - but only first - step towards delivering on our vision for helping to transform the electronics industry,” said Altium’s Chief Operating Officer Ted Pawela. “Altium 365 will ultimately provide direct, real-time connectivity between design, supply chain, and the people and equipment on the manufacturing floor to achieve this.”

    With initial release targeted for December 2018, Altium 365 provides a number of software-based services, accessed seamlessly through Altium Designer or from any web browser. These services include design to manufacturing collaboration, live component supply chain information, library management, and ECAD/MCAD co-design. Altium 365 also provides Altium customers a simplified means to manage their Altium product licenses, subscriptions, and users.

    Exciting New Enhancements in Altium Designer 19

    Along with Altium 365, Altium has also announced the upcoming release of its widely used PCB design software, Altium Designer. Altium Designer 19 builds upon the significant performance and reliability improvements of its predecessor, Altium Designer 18, with further performance and reliability enhancements including a new 3D design engine, basic MCAD capabilities, and more.

    Altium Designer 19 also brings important new capabilities for users, including high-speed design features, improved routing, and microvia support. Altium Designer 19 will also be the first release to be connected with the Altium 365 cloud-based platform, delivering the world’s first seamless design to manufacturing floor experience. Altium Designer 19 will be showcased on the second day of the AltiumLive 2018: Annual PCB Design Summit.
