OpenBOM for Altium 365: A Sneak Peek into the Digital Thread Integrated With Cloud-Based Design

In this article, we preview a new integration between OpenBOM and Altium 365. The new integration is purely cloud-based and allows you to integrate with Altium Design data without having Altium Designer installed on your computer. It is a great demonstration of the power of cloud platforms such as OpenBOM, Altium 365, and Altium Nexar. However, it is also part of our strategy for integrated design digital thread. 

Embracing a Multi-Disciplinary Design Approach with OpenBOM

In today’s fast-paced and highly integrated design environment, the fusion of multiple design sources is not just a convenience; it’s a necessity. OpenBOM’s strategy is deeply rooted in this concept, aiming to establish a continuous digital thread in design management.

 This approach is especially crucial in handling multi-disciplinary designs, which encompass mechanical, electronics, and software aspects. Leading the way, OpenBOM has developed integrations with a myriad of systems, as detailed on our website at OpenBOM Integrations.

OpenBOM Design Cloud-Based Integrations

The launch of OpenBOM Design marks the future expansion of OpenBOM cloud-based design integrations. This approach eliminates the traditional requirement for setting up desktop tool connections. The key lies in its simplicity – connect to a cloud-based REST API, and you’re all set. This breakthrough is a testament to OpenBOM’s commitment to streamlining the design process.

Integration with Altium 365 via Nexar API

At OpenBOM, we have a track record of successful integrations with various cloud-based tools, including collaborations with Autodesk Platform Services and Onshape. 

Taking a step further, we’re excited to announce our upcoming integration with Altium 365, facilitated through the Nexar API Platform. This integration signifies a major leap in our journey towards comprehensive cloud-based design solutions.

A Seamless Experience with the OpenBOM Design Dashboard

This integration is not just about functionality; it’s also about user experience. Seamlessly embedded into the OpenBOM Design dashboard, this integration offers effortless access to all your Altium projects.

 It empowers users to generate a Bill of Materials (BOM) for their PCB designs directly from the cloud, streamlining the design-to-production process significantly.

A new era of cloud-based, hassle-free Integrations is coming. Our focus on pure cloud-based/SaaS integrations aims to eliminate the complexities traditionally associated with tool installations. This advancement is a game-changer, enabling integration with a spectrum of design tools – mechanical, electronics, and software – all from a single platform. This integration creates a unified design digital thread, consolidating multi-disciplinary information about the product in one accessible location.
