Founded in Australia in 1985, Altium Limited, known as Protel Systems until 2001, is a pioneer in providing computer-based electronic board design environments. The company foresaw the success of Windows early on and fully relied on this operating system.
Today, Altium markets Altium Designer, Altium Concord Pro and Altium NEXUS. Concord Pro and NEXUS emerged from the former Altium Vault. All three systems are used in the development of printed circuit boards.
