Altium extends support for leading chip vendors

2 May 2012 News

Altium has continued to flesh out its support for market-leading board-level components with the addition of new Future Technology Devices International (FTDI), Atmel and Maxim devices to the range of products available through the AltiumLive portal.

AltiumLive delivers board-level component models and corresponding supply chain information, such as real-time price and availability data, from distributors and vendors including Digi-Key, Arrow and Farnell, directly to designers using Altium’s electronics design software, Altium Designer 10.

FTDI specialises in total solutions for converting legacy peripherals to the USB connectivity standard. For designers, FTDI offers an easy route for the addition of a USB port into their system design or the migration from serial interfaces, such as RS-232 or FIFO, to USB.

FTDI solutions are a combination of hardware and royalty-free USB drivers that have been validated with USB host class drivers, so that engineers can be assured of a robust design. All components in the FTDI product families include models for schematic symbol and PCB component with 3D body information.

The extended support for Atmel products now includes a new range of online component libraries for devices including AVR and ARM microcontrollers.

As for Maxim products, the new components include smart building block products such as 1 x 1 mm 4-pin comparators, MEMS-based real-time-clocks, point-of-load (POL) regulators and ‘beyond-the-rails’ multiplexers. Also in this release is a collection of design content for analog signal chain, interface and power devices.
