Real-time supply chain information is part of an update that includes 13,000 power management components in AltiumLive

Altium has released a new range of component libraries for board-level designs using Linear Technology power management devices. Available from AltiumLive, the release delivers more than 13,000 board-level component models and corresponding supply chain information, such as real-time price and availability data from distributors and vendors including Digi-Key, Mouser and Farnell, directly to designers using Altium's electronics design software Altium Designer.

A component model hosted in AltiumLive includes the schematic symbol, PCB footprint and a detailed 3D model for 3D mechanical integration during the PCB design process. Corresponding component price and availability data is drawn directly from vendor and supplier web services. AltiumLive also provides access to a host of design-related content including training and design tips videos, reference designs and a large range of documentation resources.

The complete Linear Technology power management catalogue has been covered in this release, bringing Altium’s overall coverage of Linear’s catalogue to more than 18,000 devices. Altium's ongoing expansion of the design content available through AltiumLive brings the total number of available components to over 140,000. The board-level components for new and existing Linear Technology device families, along with other vendors including Texas Instruments, Microchip, Maxim and more - can be accessed online by visiting the Community > Design Content section in AltiumLive at http://live.altium.com/
