Altium Limited, a global leader in Electronic Design Automation, native 3D PCB design systems (Altium Designer) and embedded software development toolkits (TASKING), announced a partnership with Aras, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), to provide advanced PLM capabilities to ECAD design teams.
Based on Altium’s solutions for collaboration and ECAD design management and Aras’ suite of PLM solutions, both companies work on a new approach to fully integrated MCAD-ECAD PLM workflows for companies with systems engineering requirements and complex mechatronic product development environments.
“Team collaboration and ECAD design management are fundamental needs in today’s electronic design environments,” said Jason Hingston, CTO at Altium. “The partnership with Aras will provide design engineers and the teams in the broader organisation with a new level of integration in an ECAD/MCAD environment.”
“The development of next generation products combining electronics and software is resulting in greater complexity during design and manufacturing,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. “Altium’s perspective on the need to bring together the electronic and mechanical design processes aligns with ours, providing us the opportunity to jointly build better PLM processes for today’s modern manufacturers.”
