At this year’s embedded world, Altium will showcase its latest and most significant product release to date: Altium Designer 18. In addition, Altium will introduce the new and improved visual power analysis application PDN Analyzer, which gives designers unprecedented control over their power delivery networks with the freedom to continuously analyze and modify multiple networks within Altium Designer. Embedded World 2018 will be the first opportunity to see this product and feature in action since its December release, with a live exhibit and presentation over the course of this special 3-day exposition.
As the industry’s first true overhaul to electronics system design since 2002, Altium Designer 18 is pushing PCB design forward with the most advanced, cutting-edge engineering solutions in the PCB design space. As an accompanying feature, Altium will also provide a comprehensive look at PDN Analyzer, an integrated functionality available as part of the Altium Designer package. Altium users now have the ability to simultaneously implement multi-network simulations (as opposed to single networks) and other advanced features like current direction indication, sortable simulation reports, and hierarchical network management all within their design tool.
With Altium’s PDN Analyzer, users can now have greater control over their power distribution networks and can immediately identify and resolve power issues within their PCB design. These new integrated visual power analysis capabilities allow users to visually comprehend and easily manage their multi-network DC voltage and current density from the convenience of their design environment, as well as rerun simulations and test modifications without interrupting their design workflows.
