A unified electronic product development solution. Altium Designer is the world's first and only unified electronic product development system that allows engineers to take a design from concept to completion within a single application. Altium Designer brings together hardware, software and programmable hardware development within a unified environment that allows all aspects of an electronic product to be designed and managed within a single system. This, combined with modern design data management capabilities allows Altium Designer to transcend traditional tool boundaries, opening up new design possibilities that allow more intelligent electronic products to be created faster than ever before. Altium Designer allows you to harness the potential that exists within today’s electronics technology, giving you design innovation within a unified environment for both today’s and tomorrow’s development needs.
The entire product development process with a single unified design solution * A single solution to develop hardware, programmable hardware and software * Take designs from concept to manufacture within a single unified environment * A single model of the design data, and a single design data storage system
Freely explore design concepts ‘on-the-fly’ * Explore devices from different vendors with minimal design reengineering * Easily explore design concepts and options before committing to final hardware * Use IP from any source, without being restricted to vendor-specific ‘sticky IP’
Rapidly prototype using a live, interactive hardware development system * Develop, explore and debug designs on real hardware, in real-time with ‘LiveDesign' * Harness the full potential of reprogrammable devices with soft-centric design * Change software and hardware with equal ease and on-the-fly
Smooth the path from design to board layout and manufacture * Single centralized data source simplifies version control and component management * Visualize and interact with board designs in real-time 3D, within the PCB editor * Seamless collaboration with MCAD designers and other engineering teams
Easily connect to wider company systems * Single access point for all design data simplifies links for data management systems * Plug-in capability and built-in interfaces for external data management * All involved in product development process access one design environment
Be equipped for the future with the latest design technologies * Expand existing skill sets while harnessing the latest devices and techniques * Make soft design and the creation of device intelligence the focus of design * Immediately access new technology through consistent and frequent updates
Be productive right ‘out-of-the-box’ * All tools and technologies in the box, including parts libraries and royalty-fee IP * No need to purchase costly add-ons to make a complete solution * Continually updated with latest devices and technologies
Upgrading your solution to Altium Designer * Migrate from your existing design platform
Note: There was a DIRFIX for this release, it says 9.3 when in reality is 9.4 (188.8.131.5259).
