Reading time ( words)

Altium LLC has launched Altium Designer 19, the latest version of the company's flagship PCB design software. Altium Designer 19 introduces new features that make designing complex, high-quality projects easier, faster, and more accurate from concept to production.

Altium Designer 18 took the PCB design experience to a new level by introducing a modern graphical user interface, multiboard functionality and a redesigned bill of materials (BOM) management system all built on 64-bit architecture. Altium Designer 19 expands on Altium Designer 18 with new and powerful design technologies that simplify the process of creating even the most complex designs and bring unparalleled unification to the schematic, layout, and post-design processes.

"Altium Designer 19 builds on the consistent performance and reliability improvements of previous versions with modern PCB design tools that are powerful, easy, and modern," said Sergey Kostinsky, Chief Technology Officer at Altium. "Altium Designer 19 users will also be able to access a convenient and connected design experience that keeps everyone in sync through seamless connectivity with Altium 365.”

Altium Designer 19 leverages new and powerful EDA technologies with a singular focus on elevating the user experience. New capabilities that accurately model high-density interconnect structures, give designers absolute confidence when manufacturing cutting edge high-density boards. An enhanced PCB materials library allows designers to create accurate impedance profiles for routing and manufacturing. The optimized component panel and part search allow parts to be found and placed in the design even if they are not already in the library, with the automated acquisition of supply chain as well as CAD data. 

“Altium Designer 19 is yet another example of Altium’s investment into cutting-edge products that make design easy throughout the entire electrical engineering product development cycle,” says John Watson, senior PCB engineer at Legrand North America. “Altium has always been committed to the PCB designer, and this release is the latest example of how they’ve continued to consistently equip me with the tools I need as a designer to complete my projects.”

Automation and the Smart Factory: Introduction to Industry 4.0

05/13/2019 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
There’s a lot of talk about automation, but I find that there is very little available on automation planning. This is one of my specialties. I started by studying for an MSEE in control theory, which went well with my bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering because I specialized in process control and IC manufacturing.

Smart Design Data Is Essential for Industry 4.0 Manufacturing

05/10/2019 | Patrick McGoff and David Wiens, Mentor, a Siemens business
Almost all of the conversation regarding Industry 4.0 is centered on the manufacturing floor, which is where the effect of the initiative is most felt initially. Little attention is given to the starting data for manufacturing—the data that comes from design. However, you can’t have smart manufacturing if your process begins with dumb data. As Pink Floyd said, “You can’t have your pudding if you don’t eat your meat!”

Nano Dimension Offers Update on Dragonfly 3D Printer a Year After Launch

04/01/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
The Nano Dimension Dragonfly 3D printer arrived in much fanfare a little over a year ago. The company has been selling them to customers around the world, many of whom are using them to print antennas, sensors, and PCBs. At AltiumLive in Munich, I asked Product Manager Robert Even to discuss what they’ve learned in the year since the Dragonfly debuted, and some potential uses for 3D printing technology.
