Valispace Joins Forces with Altium in a Strategic Acquisition

📅 Date:

🔖 Topics: Acquisition

🏢 Organizations: Altium, Valispace, HTGF

Altium, a leading provider of design software for the electronics industry, has acquired Valispace. Valispace’s capabilities in Systems- and Requirements Engineering will complement the Altium 365 cloud platform for product and electronics design. High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF), one of Europe’s leading seed investors, was the firstinstitutional investors and has been a close supporter of the team since the seed investment in 2018.

Altium and Valispace are joining forces to accelerate the execution of a shared vision for empowering engineers. Products are becoming more and more defined by their electronics: While in the 1980s a car would contain around 20 chips, this number has grown to more than 2000. At the same time there are continuously higher demands to track regulatory and other requirements down to the component level, and modern systems engineering practices are needed more than ever to manage the rising complexity of products. Engineers therefore rightfully demand modern tools that allow them to develop future products with an end-to-end solution for which Valispace at Altium will be a major building block.

Renesas to Acquire PCB Design Software Leader Altium to Make Electronics Design Accessible to Broader Market and Accelerate Innovation

📅 Date:

🔖 Topics: Acquisition

🏢 Organizations: Renesas, Altium

Renesas Electronics Corporation, a supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, and Altium Limited a global leader in electronics design systems, today announced they have entered into a Scheme Implementation Agreement (“SIA”) for Renesas to acquire Altium by way of a Scheme of Arrangement under Australian law (“Scheme”).

Together, Renesas and Altium, under a shared vision, aim to build an integrated and open electronics system design and lifecycle management platform that unifies these steps at a system level. The acquisition brings together Altium’s sophisticated cloud platform capabilities with Renesas’ strong portfolio of embedded solutions, combining high-performance processors, analog, power and connectivity. The combination will also enable integration with third-party vendors across the ecosystem to execute all electronic design steps seamlessly on the cloud. The electronics system design and lifecycle management platform will deliver integration and standardization of various electronic design data and functions and enhanced component lifecycle management, while enabling seamless digital iteration of design processes to increase overall productivity. This brings significantly faster innovation and lowers barriers to entry for system designers by reducing development resources and inefficiencies.
