OverviewNote: Altium is only available for Reykjavik University students and staff. If you are not affiliated with Reykjavik University, you will not be given access.
Altium is a Windows high-power Electronic CAD system for taking a circuit concept, turning it into a Schematic Capture diagram, then to a Printed Circuit Board layout suitable for sending to a manufacturer or fabricating in the RU Electronics lab (V207). Questions, concerns and problems should be sent to cad-admin AT RU.IS.
Important News 2022-01-18
All Altium licenses and content has been moved into the official Altium Cloud called Altium 365. The university no longer has a vault nor license server. Instead of a Vault, you will be using Altium 365 Workspaces detailed at https://www.altium.com/documentation/altium-365/workspace. One large benefit is that you will be able to access Altium off campus without needing to use the VPN.
To get started: please email cad-admin AT RU.IS and we will create the account for you. You will need to send us your full name and RU email address. Once your account is created, you will be able to login to https://live.altium.com and inspect your account.
Altium has 2 main applications:
Your altium live account is used to access your Altium 365 workspaces (including the Reykjavik University Workspace) and get a license. You should also be able to download the latest release once you have logged in (at https://live.altium.com) at https://www.altium.com/products/downloads
It is generally recommended that you uninstall previous versions of Altium Designer before installing a new version unless the major number is the same.
