Altium has told us that it will preview Altium Designer 18 at its upcoming global PCB design conferences, “AltiumLive 2017”. AltiumLive 2017 is a two-day design experience where engineers from all over the World are encouraged to attend this interactive event. The first summit of its kind, AltiumLive 2017 is targeted specifically at those seeking to expand their knowledge and learn about the latest innovations in PCB design.
Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with industry peers and design professionals, learn new skills with in-depth professional development courses, and witness keynote presentations by industry leaders. Those in attendance will also get an exclusive look at Altium Designer 18, the next generation of intelligent electronics design software and the number one professional PCB design solution worldwide
Altium Designer continues its focus on delivering new, easy-to-use and productivity enhancing PCB design tools as part of a single, unified application. Leveraging feedback and suggestions from the design community, Altium Designer 18 features capability updates and performance optimizations to significantly enhance user experience and productivity. In addition to the easy-to-use, modernized user interface, Altium Designer 18 will also feature a much anticipated upgrade to 64-bit architecture and multi-threading for greater stability, speed, and functionality. These updates will not only allow designers to increase their design speed and task execution, but will also provide more flexibility and control, simplifying the overall design process.
“I think what PCB designers will appreciate most about the upcoming release of Altium Designer 18 is a significant improvement to the user interface to increase usability and productivity”, said Mike Creeden, founder of San Diego PCB, and IPC Master trainer. “Altium has really listened to their users and has made improvements and enhancements in all the right places.”
In one of five professional development courses covering design best practices, AltiumLive will host a course dedicated to fundamentals of PCB design using Altium Designer 18.
