Electrical Engineering

Tracking design feedback scattered across emails, drawings, and direct messages can be challenging.
Finding affordable approved parts can also be tough without sufficient supply chain information.

Standardize Your Component Library

Standardize Your Component Library icon

The 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. Templates standardize the component creation process, ensuring all the required parameters are populated. With defined lifecycles, your team always knows which components can be used in a design and which are obsolete.

Efficient Design Collaboration

Efficient Design Collaboration icon

Remove silos and inefficiencies in the hardware development process, while delivering higher quality products to market faster than your competitors. Achieve this through transparent design reviews and sharing. Share the real-time state of projects with team members and manufacturers, allowing them to review and mark up your designs without leaving your design space.

Make Decisions using the latest Supply Chain Data

Make Decisions using the latest Supply Chain Data icon

Bridge the gap between engineering and procurement with up-to-date supply chain data embedded into your design flow. Enable engineers and procurement teams to make informed decisions during part research, with details on availability, compliance information, risks, and costs readily accessible. If you need to replace a part at any stage of the design process, you have the tools to trace the part and estimate the impact with the where-used functionality.

Core Features of Altium 365

Cloud Libraries

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 component 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.

Web Viewer

Deliver higher quality products to market faster than your competitors with transparent design reviews and sharing. Share the real-time state of projects with team members, manufacturers, and even customers to review and mark up your designs without ever leaving your design space. Anyone with internet access can view, search, cross probe, and comment on your project from a browser, with no additional Altium Designer licenses required.

Cloud Storage & Hardware Version Control

Cloud Storage & Hardware Version Control

All your libraries and design data are in one secure workspace with granular access control so everyone can access 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 specifically for hardware. Easily revert to previous versions if needed, and never wonder again whether the “v4_final2” is truly the final version.

ECAD-MCAD Integration

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.
