Electronic Design Automation (EDA)

Altair provides leaders in the electronics industry with electronic design automation (EDA) software to efficiently verify and evaluate their product designs. Our products significantly improve the design-to-manufacturing process, eliminate design iterations, and significantly reduce time-to-market. For printed circuit board (PCB) design, embedded systems development and smart product realization, we provide tools that address the challenges of ever-increasing performance and product complexity.

Integrated Software for PCB Design

Altair PollEx™ is the most comprehensive and integrated set of PCB design viewing, analysis, and verification tools for electrical, electronics, and manufacturing engineers. PollEx transfers data flawlessly between the industry’s most popular ECAD and simulation tools and enables many of the world’s major electronics corporations to quickly visualize and review PCB designs. Its checking tools detect issues early in the design to avoid product failures and simplify manufacture and assembly.


Visual Environment for Embedded Systems

Altair Embed® is a proven tool for model-based firmware development of embedded systems including motor control, IoT devices, and vision systems. With Embed, you can design, analyze, and simulate your embedded system using block diagrams and state charts, then automatically generate compact and optimized code to run on an extensive selection of microcontrollers from Texas Instruments™, STMicroelectronics®, Arduino®, Raspberry Pi™, and others. Hardware-in-the-Loop testing is fully supported using a high-speed bidirectional communication link for data collection and real-time tuning.


Optimize EDA Job Scheduling

Trusted for semiconductor design and EDA, Altair Accelerator™ is the industry’s fastest enterprise job scheduler — with scalable, event-driven architecture for highest throughput. Accelerator maximizes capacity utilization and can run millions of jobs per day with sub-millisecond latency for top performance. It provides scalable, small-footprint architecture and comprehensive policy management features with advanced license scheduling tracks, out-of-queue license usage, and dynamic license checkouts during a job’s lifetime.
