Altium LLC Announces Partnership With Chandigarh University to Join Upverter Education Program

Reading time ( words)

Altium LLC is announcing that Upverter Education, Altium’s free browser-based electronics engineering essential courses, will now be an integral addition to the curriculum for printed circuit board (PCB) design in the Department of Electronics and Communications at Chandigarh University in Mohali, India. The Upverter Education courses guide students through the elements of design, prototyping, and the manufacturing of electronic engineering from basic to advanced levels.

The Upverter Education program’s collaborative and remote capabilities make it an excellent learning resource to enrich the experience of STEM educators and students engaged in the study of electronic design and engineering technology. The focus on modular board style encourages students to quickly develop their understanding while easily performing elementary concepts in virtual, hybrid, and in-class scenarios. The modular layout plan also delves deeper into electronic design practices, permitting learners to work with a drag-and-fall interface into the development of hardware design patterns.

“We are delighted to have forged a partnership with Chandigarh University, a leading academic institution based in India to provide Upverter Education’s award-winning courses in printed circuit board design along with Altium's professional PCB design tools,” said Rea Callender, Vice President of Altium Education. “A collaboration such as this furthers our goal in supporting the next generation of electronics designers.” 

The Department of Electronics and Communications at Chandigarh University will launch the Upverter Education Program as a six-week course during summer and winter breaks.

The Department of Electronics and Communications will hold a ceremony on December 16, 2021, to formalize the partnership between the University and Upverter Education.

Upverter Education partners with universities around the world to help usher in the next generation of electronics designers not only with the objective to support their educational goals but to also create dynamic innovators who contribute to the future and development of electrical engineering.

I recently spoke with Todd Westerhoff, product marketing manager for signal integrity software tools at Siemens. We discussed a new capability called HyperLynx Apps that offers a new take on traditional signal and power integrity analysis, and how that fits in with the Siemens plan to put SI and PI tools into the hands of more designers early in the design cycle.

Webinar Review: Thermal Integrity of High-Performance PCB Design

08/01/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Electrical and mechanical engineers may be working on the same product development teams, but they speak different languages, and they have completely different objectives. As a result, these folks almost never use the same software tools. But Cadence’s new Celsius Thermal Solver is an exception to the rule. In a new CadenceTECHTALK webinar, “How Static and Dynamic IR Drop Analysis Can Help PCB Designs and Challenges,” product manager Melika Roshandell and SerDes SI/PI engineer Karthik Mahesh Rao explain how the EE and ME can both use the Celsius Thermal Solver to achieve their disparate objectives.

The Great Divide in PCB Simulation Software

07/26/2022 | Zachariah Peterson, NWES
Today’s PCB design engineers have more layout and analysis tools at their disposal than ever before. Over the years we’ve seen layout tools become more automated, rules-driven, and more integrated. Now we even have integration between design tools from different vendors and ranging across domains, starting with basic circuit design, and spanning up to PLM and ERP integration. It really is a great time to be a designer.
