Concept Engineering, producers of electronic system visualisation software for the development, manufacture, and service of complex electrical and electronic systems, has been acquired by Altair.
Concept Engineering’s electronic system visualisation and semiconductor design debug technology is available as a standalone solution and is also tightly integrated into more than 40 OEM design automation (EDA) and CAD tools to provide end users with smart debugging functionality while saving time and support for computer aided tool development teams.
Automatic schematic generation tools, electronic circuit and wire harness visualisation platforms that provide on-the-fly visual rendering, and electronic design debug solutions also make up part of the company’s offering, which will be integrated into Altair’s Electronic System Design suite and available via Altair Units.
“Concept Engineering’s advanced, reactive visualisation technology is a best-in-class solution to help organisations accelerate their designs that have specific design architecture requirements, as well as rigorous service needs,” said Altair CEO James R. Scapa.
“Integrating this technology into our electronic system design suite will offer our customers comprehensive and fast visual representations of complex system models and debug capabilities for electronic systems.”
Concept Engineering features in three primary markets: semiconductor design, CAD tool development and industries reliant on complex electrical systems – from automotive to aerospace.
“With more than 30 years of experience, we are proud to have built tools and technologies that help electronic design engineers easily understand, debug, optimise, and document electronic designs” said Concept Engineering CEO Gerhard Angst.
“Being part of the Altair ecosystem will expand access to our tools at a time when the complexities surrounding electronic systems are greater than ever. We also look forward to continuing our deep and longstanding partnerships with our OEM clients.”
