When electronic components become obsolete, design and production can suffer lengthy delays. With an average of 15 end-of-life notices issued every day, part obsolescence is a challenge that most engineers routinely face. To address this design challenge, Altium has partnered with IHS Markit, the world’s most accurate component intelligence source, which provides actionable lifecycle status updates as the PCB is being designed. IHS Markit’s BOM analysis provides current lifecycle status for over 660 million electronic components.
“PCB designers urgently need to understand whether the components they specify are going to be available for the full lifecycle of their end products,” says Ted Pawela, Chief Operating Officer of Altium. “IHS Markit and Altium are partnering to make reliable component lifecycle data and recommended substitutes seamlessly available to them as they design rather than after the fact.”
IHS Markit’s Electronic part and supply chain intelligence is integrated with Altium 365, the world’s only cloud platform for printed circuit board design and realization. Altium 365 works harmoniously with Altium Designer, the industry standard for PCB design, to deliver the most connected experience for PCB design and manufacturing.
The Altium 365 Pro subscription plan provides users with component management capabilities including part and supply chain intelligence powered by IHS, allowing engineers to easily find and replace components that are obsolete or facing end of life.
“By using lifecycle information and alternative part options from IHS, Altium Designer and Altium 365 users can ensure successful supply chain continuity at any point in the PCB design cycle, long before potential end-of-life issues arise,” explains IHS Markit Vice President Bob Braasch.
Altium 365 Pro subscribers can now access IHS Markit technology from within the Altium Designer’s Manufacturer Part Search panel for effortless access to the latest component life cycles, alternative part options and actionable information. With Altium Designer’s ActiveBOM editor, users can harness the latest alternative part choices from IHS Markit, ensuring part availability for the entire Bill of Materials (BOM).
