Announcement: FTDI Content Update

As part of our continuing program of releasing design content to AltiumLive, the Hobart Content Team is pleased to announce a board-level update to FTDI’s Communication components which includes their full catalogue of USB Interface devices.

Developed in partnership with FTDI, we have released an update to the complete collection of vault-based components with schematic and PCB models - includes FT Series and Vinculum devices – all brought up to date with the latest source data. To read more about the relationship between Altium and FTDI see the press release here.

These, along with our previous releases of board-level content, are now available from the Unified Components section of the AltiumLive Content Store.

All components in the updated FTDI range include supply chain information from suppliers such as Digi-Key and Mouser, which can be best viewed when browsing these components from the Vault Explorer in Altium Designer 10. In Altium Designer, navigate to the Altium Vault to check them out.

As well as vault based components that are available via Altium Designer’s Vault Explorer, an Integrated Library containing these components is now available for download from the Content Store. Look for the “Download AD10 IntLib” button on the left-hand sidebar.

So take a look, browse through the content store and discover our increasing range of high quality components from manufacturers and suppliers. Then feel free to give us constructive feedback about what’s currently available and what you’d like to see in forthcoming releases (in the comment area below).

The content development team is shifting into high gear, so expect a host of new board-level content to be released throughout the year – and here’s your chance to influence what that content might be!
