What’s New in Altium 365: Version Control for Hardware, Layer Stackup in Web Viewer, and SOC 2 Type 1 Certification
In February, we hit a new record in the number of users on the platform. The Altium 365 user community is now 20,000 strong!
You can now migrate from an external version control system to Altium 365 preserving the history of commits. We also received the SOC 2 Type 1 certification from KPMG, made layer stack available in the web viewer, and added the brand new capability to track tasks in the context of your design project.
If you have any thoughts or feedback for us, please join the discussion on the Altium 365 forum or simply hit reply (please note it might take us some time to respond. If you have a time-sensitive issue, please contact our support, and if you would like to report a bug, please use Bugcrunch).
Migrate to Altium 365 from External Version Control Systems
You can now easily migrate from another version control system to Altium 365 without losing the history of the commits. Altium 365 provides a version control system specifically built for electronics design. If in doubt about whether it will work for you, check out this blog from Ari Mahpour, an engineer at Rivian. He discusses how Altium 365 compares to a standard VCS.
SOC 2 Type I Certification
System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 is a widely recognized attestation of security compliance defined by the AICPA and is considered the standard for ensuring data security and operational maturity.
Tasks in Altium 365
With Tasks, you will never lose essential action items and will quickly obtain a high-level view of the state of your project, all without leaving your design environment.
Layer Stackup in Altium 365’s Web Viewer
The layer stackup of your board is now available within Altium 365's web viewer, allowing all the project stakeholders to access it without having to install Altium Designer.
Interactive Commenting in Layer Stackup
Altium 365’s interactive commenting function has been expanded to the layer stackup. You can leave comments on specific layers or vias and keep all the communication in one place.
This section highlights the features we might have had for some time, but would like to make sure more people know about.
