Altium, known for its Windows-based electronics design software, has announced the latest release of the Altium Designer Viewer Edition, which enables users to quickly and easily view, print, cross probe and explore design projects and documents that have been created in Altium's unified electronic product development system, Altium Designer.
This latest Viewer Edition license provides users with expanded functionality to support the recent Altium Designer 6 release as well as design projects created in all previous versions of the software. The Viewer Edition installation also easily allows users to keep up-to-date with Altium Designer's new Web Update feature.

The Altium Designer Viewer Edition license boosts engineering design team productivity and accelerates time to market by significantly aiding the communication and sharing of design data. Designed to be installed by all those in a company who are involved in the wider electronic product development process, the Viewer gives users ability to freely interrogate all aspects of a design while preserving the integrity of the projects by preventing editing of the design documents. As a true viewer, it offers members of a team quick, read-only access to a design, allowing them to review and provide feedback to the original Designer. Users can open and securely explore single documents, design projects or multiple projects that have been grouped together as part of a design workspace.

All of Altium Designer's powerful review and inspection capabilities are enabled in this latest Viewer Edition license providing engineering design team members with access to the full complement of query, viewing and inspection capabilities, from checking the parameters in a schematic component, to examining the PCB design rules, through to scrutinizing the routing with Altium Designer 6's new Board Insight Lens feature. Users can also generate reports and printouts, and open and view Gerber, ODB++, NC Drill, and other manufacturing files with the Viewer Edition.

The Altium Designer Viewer Edition License is available free-of-charge and is activated by a license which is registered to the user for 12 months. The Altium Designer Viewer Edition can be downloaded immediately from
