    PCB 2020: Altium Brings International Roadshow to a Close

    June 29, 2017

    Altium CEO on podium

    We have officially wrapped our two-month international roadshow, PCB 2020: Altium’s Roadmap to the Future, which gave attendees a glimpse into the future of electronics design. With nine cities on the roster, the event featured live presentations and hands-on demonstrations from the industry’s leading experts discussing the latest trends and technologies that are shaping the course of the electronics design industry.

    With the support of technical experts and guest speakers from around the globe, PCB 2020: Altium’s Roadmap to the Future explored how industry trends will affect engineers over the next few years. We also took this opportunity to connect with our users, provide clarity on the Altium toolset, and share our plans for future Altium products and releases.  By doing so, we were able to remind engineers that within our portfolio of products lies a solution for anyone with the will to create electronics, from professional PCB design teams to the lone hobby engineer.

    “We want to make PCB design software accessible to a much greater number of electronic engineers,” said Aram Mirkazemi, Chief Executive Officer at Altium. “Our mission to place capable tools into the hands of the everyday engineer is what drives us to move forward with the technologies we’re creating in our roadmap.”

    A Solution for Every Engineer

    Our goal has always been to equip the engineer with everything they need to create their designs, regardless of budget or experience. By providing the design community with tools that are accessible and easy to use, the window of opportunity is no longer limited to the professional or enterprise design team, but to anyone that wants to make their vision a reality.

    For the student or hobbyist, we offer CircuitMaker®, a free cloud-based platform that grants users access to an online community of like-minded individuals where they can collaborate and learn from each other in a nurturing environment. In a rising startup where PCB design is only a small part of their daily workflow, CircuitStudio® provides a powerful set of tools that are accessible and easy to use, designed to pick up and go.

    A Glimpse into the Future of Altium Technology

    PCB 2020: Altium’s Roadmap to the Future also presented audience members with a glimpse into future Altium technologies, including a sneak peek at Altium Designer® and the first look at Atina, the highly-anticipated new solution for team-based, system-level design.

    A live demonstration of Altium 18 showcased several new and improved features, such as the powerful 64-bit engine with an updated modern UI, multi-board functionality, multi-threading optimizations, and ActiveRoute®™ length tuning.

    The introduction of Atina proved to be a highlight of the event, giving attendees an overview of the all-new software solution that offers high-powered collaboration tools for enterprise-level design teams. More information will be released on Atina in the coming months.

    If you were unable to attend the roadshow, you can still view the technical presentations on-demand in our virtual roadshow.
