Librarian

It’s a challenge to create and maintain a part library with accurate data and up-to-date
supply chain information, and it’s even harder to ensure our engineers and designers use it.

Standardize Your Component Library

Standardize Your Component Library icon

You’re responsible for the components library, one of the team’s most valuable design assets. Now you can manage all components in one central and secure location, ensuring everyone on the team can use the same set of validated components. Component templates help you standardize the component creation process, ensuring all the required parameters are populated.

Library Health Dashboard

This dashboard provides a summary of your library’s health and allows you to dig into the details. It includes built-in supply chain data sources: Octopart and IHS Markit®. Additionally, optional data sources such as SiliconExpert® and Z2Data® are available. With defined component lifecycles, you and your team will always know which components can be used in a design and which ones are obsolete.

Elevated Design Collaboration

With our central library, you can limit who can create new parts, ensuring that duplicates are not made and that all parts contain the information your team needs. This helps you reduce the need for ‘cleaning up’ duplicates and incomplete parts. With a cleaner library, your team reduces inefficiencies in your hardware development process, enabling faster delivery of products to market faster than your competitors.

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.

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.

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.
