Altium 365 introduces Multi-CAD Support, making it the world's first truly ECAD-agnostic electronics development platform. Design, procurement, and manufacturing professionals now have one place to collaborate on their electronics development process.

Companies often use multiple ECAD file formats due to legacy designs in different systems, a mixed-ECAD approach driven by acquisitions or preferences, and contractors working with various solutions to accommodate clients. Historically, design reviews, BOMs, and production designs were stored in different systems, hindering a unified view. Altium 365 Multi-CAD Support enables centralized access to designs, BOMs, and supply chain data.

Have you received a warning that a part is reaching its end of life or is in short supply? You can now quickly identify affected designs across all file formats and devise a solution. No more searching through endless spreadsheets to find a part number and hoping you don’t miss any. This reduces the risk of production halts that could cost your company millions of dollars. 

In this session, learn how to:
