SYDNEY (Feb. 17, 2014) – Altium Limited announced that DesignCon, part of UBM Tech's portfolio of communities for the electronics industry, has honored Altium Designer 14 with a 2014 DesignVision Award in the PCB Design category. The award program celebrates the achievements of the most innovative electronics companies and the unique tools that support customer needs to improve and simplify the design process.
UBM Tech's editorial staff evaluated products from hundreds of submissions. Winners were selected based on three criteria: how well the product met the market’s vision and offered unique insight into customer needs; the originality of the solution and if it offered a new approach to meeting market needs; and the quality of the implementation and how well it fits the market requirements.
“As evidenced by their receipt of this award, the team at Altium continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with design software,” said Janine Sullivan Love, DesignCon Technical Program Director. “With its 3D PCB design environment and support of flex and rigid-flex design, Altium Designer 14 addresses a range of needs for designers who must be successful in the rapidly evolving world of PCB design.”
“The team at Altium is honored to be recognized by the staff at UBM as the one with the most advanced PCB design software on the market,” said Lawrence Romine, Sr, Manager of Americas Marketing. “But actually we wouldn't be here without our passionate Altium Designer users. Actually I'd like to dedicate this award to all of them, as their requests and feedback played an important role for Altium Designer 14. With its new features, including flex and rigid-flex support and enhanced layer stack management, customers confirm that it meets their design needs for next generation electronics design better than any other product on the market and even enables them to make the next steps.”
