Seeed to join the Altium Nexar Cloud in New Partnership

Shenzhen — Seeed Technology Ltd. is to join Altium’s Cloud-based Nexar platform, connecting Altium 365 users and electronics design and manufacturing services needed for smart innovation. As a hardware accelerator specializing in IoT, Seeed is proud to be part of the ecosystem offering its engineering and manufacturing expertise to Altium 365 users.

Even before the pandemic, the trend towards cloud-based services was already rapidly gaining momentum. According to recent reports, 92% of large enterprises around the globe have a multi-cloud strategy and a third of these are spending over $12 million a year on public clouds. The trend is encouraging leading software providers to think ahead and initiate the change towards collaborative workflows and cloud integration in their sectors.

As the leading electronics design software provider for professionals, Altium has already seen over 5000 companies adopt the new cloud-based platform Altium 365. Nexar seeks to expand on Altium 365’s offering, by connecting designers with resources, services and manufacturing partners.

One of those early integrators is Seeed. With the new partnership, Seeed aims to provide resources on all levels, from design resources from Seeed’s own engineers to direct access to Seeed’s online manufacturing services, Seeed Fusion. The partnership opens up a wealth of tools and manufacturing assistance for Altium 365 users in conjunction with services from other providers such as Octopart and Altium’s own powerful “embeds”.

One of Seeed’s key founding goals was to accelerate electronics innovation, and Seeed hopes the new Altium 365 and Nexar partnership will further build on this goal by providing a fully integrated cloud-based solution that connects directly with design teams. Altium 365 users can anticipate increasing contributions from Seeed in the near future to help accelerate their workflow.
