Altair PollEx for Altium, First in Series, Launched for PCB Design

Reading time ( words)

Altair, a global leader in computational engineering and intelligence, has launched a special edition of Altair PollEx, an electronic system design (ESD) software tool, for Altium users to empower printed circuit board (PCB) designers to predict and maximize overall PCB performance and verify manufacturability.

Altair PollEx for Altium is a free version of PollEx designed to support various electrical computer-aided design (ECAD) software products, the first of which is Altium Designer, as announced at AltiumLive. Altair PollEx for Altium will make board-level simulation and design verification features seamlessly accessible to Altium Designer users.

"The power of Altair PollEx is evident in the broad best-in-class offering for PCB simulation (signal integrity, power integrity, thermal) and comprehensive design verification for manufacturability (DFM), electrical (DFE), and assembly (DFA)," said Stephanie Buckner, chief operating officer, Altair. "We are excited to make this sophisticated technology more broadly available, helping speed up design cycles and improve innovation."

"We are excited that Altair has joined Altium's Nexar partner ecosystem, and very pleased that this edition of Altair PollEx is being made available to the Altium Designer user community at no additional cost to our users," said Ted Pawela, chief ecosystem officer and head of Nexar business unit, Altium.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Mark Thompson

05/12/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I-Connect007 Columnist Mark Thompson of Out of the Box Manufacturing has been in CAM engineering for decades, and he’s also worked as a PCB designer, so we knew he would have a few things to say about working in a vacuum. As he explains, the designer isn’t the only stakeholder in the process who feels like he’s working inside the dust bag of a Hoover upright.
