Altium 365 and SiliconExpert integrate to deliver unmatched component data access to designers across the globe

Altium, LLC, a global electronics design systems firm, announced its integration collaboration with SiliconExpert, a provider of electronic component data and parts management software.

What does the integration mean for customers?

This integration empowers engineers, procurement professionals, and other stakeholders using Altium 365, an electronics development platform, with direct access to comprehensive, real-time component data whenever it is needed during the design and product lifecycle.

With SiliconExpert’s data on over a billion electronic parts, Altium 365 users can soon access even more detailed component information than they have had before, from the simplest resistors to the most complex ICs. The data, collected directly from manufacturers, helps ensure unparalleled accuracy and reliability in decision-making. The integration will offer:

  • Comprehensive Component Data: Extensive component details, from lifecycle status to environmental compliance, right within the ActiveBOM.
  • Informed Decision-making: Real-time component data to aid in making informed decisions about component selection, enhancing design quality, efficiency, and compliance.
  • Risk Management: Detailed metrics, including Year-to-End-of-Life (YTEOL) date, multi-sourcing, and inventory risks, allow for proactive risk management and strategic decision-making.
  • Accuracy and Reliability: High-quality, up-to-date data backed by SiliconExpert’s strict data integrity protocols.
