Altium: Designing Embedded AI PCBs Made Easy with Coral from Google, Upverter


Reading time ( words)

Altium LLC, a global electronics software company, is announcing that Upverter, Altium’s browser-based electronics design environment, is now officially a part of the Coral Partnership Program. Engineers and product designers can harness Upverter to create and manufacture hardware accelerated AI boards quickly and easily.

Upverter is a web-based electronics design environment for creating and manufacturing electronics systems and printed circuit boards—all from a single application. Users can design custom carrier boards and order them directly from the Upverter environment. Custom carrier boards are pre-tested, manufactured and shipped directly to customers. 

“We are thrilled to join the Coral Partnership Program alongside such industry leaders as Asus, Mouser Electronics, and Arrow,” elaborates Ted Pawela, Chief Ecosystem Officer. “And, we’re even more excited to see what our users create by combining Upverter’s web-based, modular design technology with the power of Coral artificial intelligence.” 

Coral, from Google, helps bring on-device AI application ideas from prototype to production with hardware components, software tools, and pre-compiled models. As Billy Rutledge, Director of Coral team at Google, elaborates, “Coral is dedicated to making AI more accessible. Upverter’s powerful design tool makes the benefits of integrating Coral technology more accessible to the engineers and product designers developing the solutions of our future. We believe that together, we can empower AI solutions to build a more resilient world and are excited to have Upverter join us in our mission.”

Upverter features multiple design templates, which now include a new series of embedded board designs that work with Coral Intelligence. These templates can be easily copied and customized in Upverter. Featured boards designed with Coral Intelligence include the CM4 Pixhawk FMUv6U and PoE Smart Camera.

To commemorate this exciting partnership, Upverter is waiving manufacturing fees on all boards designed in Upverter that work with Coral Intelligence; customers only pay for board costs, quantities and shipping. This limited offer runs through June 30, 2021.

Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

Hard to believe that a year ago, I was getting ready to attend DesignCon and IPC APEX EXPO and wondering if this Novel Coronavirus was going to cut into attendance from the Pacific Rim. Now, we’re accustomed to virtual trade shows. They’re not ideal, but they’re the best we can do while meeting in person is not possible. We’ve learned to adapt.
