Altium, a provider of smart system design automation, solutions for 3D PCB design and embedded software development, has launched Altium Designer 13.3, the second major update to its flagship product this quarter, alongside updates to the AltiumLive ecosystem.
The company says the benefits of Altium Designer 13.3 include easier access to ready-to-use design content in Altium’s Design Content Vaults; faster design capture using Altium’s ever expanding range of component libraries; and support in ActiveBOM for selecting currency, and better supplier ranking automation. In addition, design teams can continue to leverage their legacy design IP when moving to a unified and productivity focused design system, while an improved interaction between customers and technical support engineers aims to reduce resolution time for all queries from a streamlined support centre.
'We remain committed to a predictable flow of updates with incremental enhancements and improvements to our core toolset,' said Altium’s director of product release management, Clare Jolly. 'Above all else, designers need a reliable design system and an online ecosystem that deeply supports it. These releases are directly aimed at providing that.'
