Altium upgrades Vault to version 3.0

22 March 2017 Design Automation

Altium has launched an all-new version of its PCB component and design data management solution with Altium Vault 3.0, as a complement to its PCB design software Altium Designer 17.

The firm says it recognised that engineers struggle with the necessary but tedious process of managing design and component data on a daily basis. The reality is most engineers are using outdated, ad-hoc processes to manage PCB design data, which led Altium to dedicate seven years of research and development to design the world’s first data management solution designed specifically with the engineer in mind.

Altium Vault 3.0 introduces a secure and centralised system for managing design data that is simple to install and natural to use. Rather than requiring tedious and manual procedures to manage data, Altium Vault utilises powerful automation technology to make data management simple, and aid the design process rather than hinder it. Engineers can easily find the right parts, apply models to their design, make corrections when necessary, and release verified design content and documentation with a single click of the mouse.

Altium Vault streamlines the engineer’s existing workflow by placing verified PCB component and design data directly into their design environment. Engineers can avoid the headache of tracking down parts and capturing design requirements while also ensuring that their designs are equipped with the correct parts. If an obsolete or errant part exists, Altium Vault makes it easy to locate and replace across all library and design instances. With all design and component content securely stored in a single location and used across all projects, designers can release with confidence in knowing that their printed circuit boards have been designed with up-to-date design data.

Altium Vault 3.0 is now available for free trial and purchase, and the new technologies it introduces are available as a free upgrade for existing Altium Vault Subscription customers on the Altium Downloads page.
