Altium Ltd announced an upgraded version of Altium Designer, which provides a single, unified application that incorporates all the technologies and capabilities necessary for complete electronic product development. It integrates board- and FPGA-level system design, embedded software development for FPGA-based and discrete processors, and PCB layout, editing and manufacturing within a single design environment. This, combined with enhanced support for modern design data, document and project management capabilities, makes Altium Designer 6.0 a complete solution for electronic product development.

According to Nick Martin, founder and CEO of Altium, the electronics industry is changing rapidly in response to demands for smaller, faster and more intelligent products. "In the development of Altium Designer 6.0, we have taken a strategic approach to addressing industry trends and the current and future needs of our customers. We are committed to providing our customers with the capabilities they neednot only today, but moving into the future," Martin said.

With this new release, the company has strengthened and enhanced almost all areas of its Altium Designer system. Physical platform design has been upgraded to support the high board densities and high-speed signaling found in today's designs. Programmable design support has also been extended with increased programmable device and processor coverage and higher levels of physical-level integration.

The company added that its Altium Designer recognizes and supports the convergence of traditionally disparate design disciplines. Creating an electronic product involves balancing a number of different processes that must come together to meet business objectives. Projects must be completed on time and within budget. As electronics products become more intelligent, designers must become 'smarter' in the way they develop these products in order to meet these business objectives.

Altium Designer 6.0 is already available for purchase through the company's sales and support centers worldwide.
