About Altium Limited

Altium Limited is anAustralian based software company that provides PC-based electronicsdesign software for engineers. Founded in 1985, Altium has headquartersin Sydney and sales offices in the United States, Europe, Japan, China,and resellers in all other major markets. The company was known asProtel until 2001.


At the heart of AltiumDesigner 10 are new engineering content management capabilities,including an Enterprise Vault Server, aimed at unifying design-relateddata in a secure location. Given the complexity of todays electronicsdesign, enterprise vaulting capabilities are essential to accommodatethe needs of dispersed design teams, to facilitate multi-domaincollaboration and to ensure reusable assets, according to Bob Potock,Altiums director of Americas marketing. In addition, as products becomesmaller and the clearances get tighter, there is less margin for error,hence the need for a central platform to secure IP and to facilitatecollaboration.

Altium Designer 10 debuts a variety of newtechnologies to address these issues. The new releases supports aunified data model so a variety of design data can be captured andstored in a central location, from schematics to PCB layouts andembedded software development data. Altium Designer 10 also ushers inwhat it dubs a next-generation Component Management System, aframework that manages components at the engineering level, in thedesign and across release domains. The framework extends existing modelsof storing and managing ECAD component data to capture businessintelligence along with where-used capabilities for tracking whereexactly components are used across any design or release document.Altium Designer 10 also includes a new live supplier-linking system toprovide real-time updates to pricing and availability information sodesigners can keep up with component changes.

Key highlights

- Via Stitching
Ofparticular importance for RF and High Speed designs, the brand new ViaStitching feature applies a definable pattern of vias between layerswhere the copper areas overlap and share the same net. It helps maintainlow impedance connections and short return loops through the boardstructure for developing high-performance, electromagnetically quietPCBs.
Via Stitching runs as a post-process using an algorithm thatidentifies all Fills, Polygons and Power Planes attached to a specifiednet, then populates free areas of copper with stitching vias to connectthe layers using the specified via and stitching pattern. See the Wikipage for more information or watch the video on this new feature.
- Schematic text overlay rendering
Textcontainer frames placed on the Schematic have been improved to displayand print as the uppermost level, regardless of any electrical drawing
primitives that the frame overlays.
- Improvements to Ansoft Exporter
Inupdate 16 we released improvements to this exporter to make it easierto import and simulate in Ansoft products. With this latest update,weve
continued development and reduced the number of errorsgenerated once imported into Ansoft (object centreline connectionissues, and reducing
differences between metric and imperialexports). Also, a larger array of component values are now imported,making it easier to set up the board for
- Improvements to software update patching system
TheAltium Designer software patching system has been further enhanced tomake the software update process less disruptive. Amongst a range of
improvements,the patch preparation process has been configured to run during theupdate download at a low background priority, allowing Altium
Designerto continue being used with minimal interruption. The update processnow also provides the option to select whether you want to update using
patchesor a full download. This improvement will help those users whoexperience a lengthy update process due to anti-virus programs, whereusing the full download becomes a much faster process. Note: Theseimprovements will only be visible with the next update to AltiumDesigner.

5529 Fixed bugs in loading and saving preferences.
5561 Updated logic for detecting violations for floating net labels, power objects and wires.
- System Components: Altium Designer Installation System
5830The patching system has been moved into the Altium Downloader to run inthe background. Note: This improvement will only be visible with thenext update to Altium Designer.
6012 Included an option wheninstalling an update to use patches or a full download. Note: Thisoption will only be visible for future updates.
- System Components: PCB System
5528 Via stitching has been added. Refer to Altium Wiki for more information.
- System Components: Schematic System
5686 Fixed slow drawing of schematics containing blankets with dashed linestyle.
5886 Junctions no longer display on top of text frames and notes.
5938 Fixed crash when compiling OpenBus documents.
- Importers and Exporters: Exporter - Ansoft
5023The Ansoft exporter has been improved to reduce differences in errorsand warnings between metric and imperial exported files.
5024 TheAnsoft exporter has been improved to reduce the number of warnings givenwhen trace enpoints and pad centres are misaligned.
5027 The Ansoft exporter now includes RLC component values in a format that imports into SIwave.
- Importers and Exporters: Importer - PADS
5928 Importing from Pads Logic libraries now imports arcs correctly.
- Output Generators: Output - Gerber
5911 Offset pads are now rendered correctly when mirror is used in PCB Print / Gerber outputs generation.
- Output Generators: Printer - PCB
5911 Offset pads are now rendered correctly when mirror is used in PCB Print / Gerber outputs generation.
