Altium Accelerates IoT and AI Hardware Development through Geppetto and Seeed Collaboration

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 25, 2020 — (PRNewswire) —

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Altium (ASX: ALU), announces that Seeed, the IoT hardware enabler, has embedded the Geppetto electronic design application into its Seeed platform. Seeed users can now go straight from creating a design, to manufacturing a working printed circuit board in just one session.

Geppetto is a ground-breaking cloud-based design tool that allows anyone to design electronics. Until now, Gumstix was the only company using Geppetto to create and manufacture custom electronics. Now users can create Geppetto-based designs and have them manufactured by Seeed. A hardware design can be completed in minutes, and ready to ship from 7 – 20 working days.

"We are thrilled to see Altium has simplified electronic engineering to a new standard. Geppetto is lowering the barrier for everyone to turn their sketch into a real board, thus enabling emerging applications on AI, IoT, Automations for wider deployment," said Eric Pan, CEO of Seeed. "Seeed is honored to join the adventure by supporting our latest collection of open source hardware and agile manufacturing services!"

Geppetto Key Capabilities:

  • Custom Web-design tool – embedded directly into the Seeed ecosystem, Geppetto provides a simple drag and drop design platform for all levels of designers enabling them to quickly build production-ready prototypes for IoT and AI applications.
  • Design to Build – Geppetto allows Seeed users, makers or professional engineers, to design custom hardware from the Seeed component library. The Board Builder is a menu driven application that allows users to rapidly populate a Geppetto board, making the design/prototype process trivially easy.
  • Rapid Manufacturing – Seeed can manufacture and deliver custom hardware directly, or with partners.

"Exciting new electronics are being conceived by programmers who are putting their innovative software in specialized devices," said W. Gordon Kruberg, M.D., head of Modular Hardware, Altium, LLC." We are thrilled to be working with Seeed to put Geppetto's power of authorship and design in the hands and minds of this new generation of makers."
