Altium has formed a partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to bring transformation to the electronics industry through a digital platform that connects design to the supply chain and the manufacturing floor.
To achieve this goal, Altium has chosen Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host Altium 365, the cloud platform for collaborative PCB design and realization.
“AWS is central to Altium 365’s success to keep the platform, customers’ designs, and data secure, available and accessible,” said Greg Bellasis, Altium’s Director of Cybersecurity. “A broad portfolio of AWS services and the collaboration with their enterprise support team helps us achieve this goal to ensure ongoing stability, security, and reliability for our users to connect with anyone, from anywhere, in any time zone and from any web-enabled device to get their job done.”
As Michael Weston, Lead Engineer in Kinetic Vision’s Product Design and Development Group, explains, “We switched over to Altium 365 in January 2020 because we needed a more stable platform for our data and collaboration methods compared to the local methods we were using, but with the COVID-19 situation, the platform became even more essential because our team members could continue to work remotely. Altium 365 has given us more power to create brilliant work—no matter where our team is working from.”
“There’s a broad recognition that cloud is a more secure place to do collaborative projects than traditional on-premises infrastructures,” said David Pellerin, head of Worldwide Business Development for Infotech/Semiconductor at AWS. “By using the cloud to secure their most sensitive data and improve efficiencies and maximize collaboration, Altium and their customers can free up developers and engineers to focus on innovation.”
The Altium 365 cloud-based platform and Altium Designer elevates PCB design by creating seamless collaboration points across the development process, making it the most connected design experience in the industry.
Teams can organize designs, libraries, and participants in one place, and share links to their designs for easy, real-time collaboration. Designs are accessible at any time, on any device, anywhere, thanks to AWS’s proven global infrastructure.
By combining the flexibility of sharing and collaboration in the cloud with the power of desktop PCB design software, Altium is making a big leap towards modernizing and transforming the way the electronics industry meets the growing demand for smart and connected products.
