Altium Designer is known as one of the most modern technology PCB design software available today. With an intuitive, simple interface, users have the option of adjusting to personal preferences, thereby making design work on complex boards easier.
The software possesses “one-of-a-kind” features such as: interactive routing, DRC, which helps increase accuracy in designs.
Routing features are often set up based on the shape or hierarchy of the software to facilitate faster topology access.
Features of Altium Designer
- Fast design processing speed
Compared to its predecessors, Altium 2023 is upgraded with fast processing speed. Speed is optimal from the moment you start designing until you use the full set of tools for an output.
- The software has flexible options, making it easy for users to adjust, thereby greatly improving the processing speed of the entire project.
- Flexible chain information forwarding
Altium Designer provides users with all the details directly from the vendors. From there you can create an Invoice of Materials and keep track of updates related to each part, ensuring uninterrupted execution.
- Multi-channel and hierarchical design
The software allows designers to work on multiple layers, advanced hierarchies easily. Then, with the equipped feature, it also helps to simplify many layers based on: structural relationships, electrical … to create easier-to-read worksheets.
- Extended Library Access
Altium Designer version 2021 gives designers access to growing libraries of content. Accordingly, the number of ingredients to use will amount to more than 400k+ components. In addition, users can also create additional components to suit individual preferences and requirements using the collected templates.
- Interactive Routing Tool
The software’s routing engine allows users to define a path to connect nodes in each of the different networks. Designers can use a variety of routing features such as: go around, bypass obstacles, hug and push …
