Morfik and Altium

Hi Everyone,

I'm Nick Martin - I'm the guy who started Altium (known then as Protel) some 25 years ago.

I would like to share some of my thoughts on the whole Altium + Morfik equation, why we are doing this, what we are trying to achieve here and how this might all pan out.

As some of you now know, Morfik and Altium share a deep common heritage. This is based on the friendship and collaboration between Aram Mirkazemi and myself that dates back to the early days of Protel and before.

The intertwined nature of the development of technology and the explosion of infrastructure of the Internet, has been a spectacle that we have both been fascinated with for many years. Its clear now that this is the foundation of the next step for the evolution of our global society and we are seeing this unfold before us.

Morfik to join forces with Altium

You might have noticed my low profile on the forum in the past few weeks and perhaps thought that I might have finally decided to give myself a break and take some quiet time away from work. Well, nothing could be further from the truth!

In the last few weeks I have been involved with an exciting development that I think can be a game-changer for Morfik and its loyal developer community. Specifically, I have been involved with a series of discussions with Altium, a maker of software and hardware development tools for electronic devices, to build a cloud-based web-application platform for electronic devices built by Altium tools.
