Printed Circuit Boards are the central nervous system for every electronic product. The backbone of every great PCB design is the tools and talent of the designer. That’s why we take PCB design so seriously. Altium Designer combines precision, usability, Native 3D, and collaboration to enable engineers and designers to get complex PCB designs done right, the first time.
“While the different design and technology disciplines are getting more and more interconnected, it is absolutely important for an institution like ours, but also for our researchers and our students – the future engineers – that we all have access to state-of-the-art design technology and tools. With Altium Designer, we managed to reduce the number of iterations in prototyping (mechanical and electronic) on the way to the final product significantly: Thanks to its 3D design capabilities and the interactive data exchange with a variety of mechanical CAD systems, Altium Designer facilitates the integration of the printed circuit boards in their mechanical environment right from the very beginning, even with ever more demanding mechanical constraints.

Low Stress, Native 3D PCB Design for Professionals
Altium Designer is productivity focused electronics design software for professionals, incorporating unified stress-free schematic and Printed Circuit Board CAD functions with design verification, validation and formal release and reuse capabilities. Altium Designer is used by PCB designers and engineers to create new electronic gadgets for entertainment, industry, defence, and the well-being of people and society.
Altium Designer is powerful and flexible, making it much easier to do highly constrained PCB designs faster. By keeping the schematic and PCB in sync, all design domains share a common interface increasing usability and reducing effort. Collaboration beyond PCB layout is essential in today’s engineering teams: Native 3D, importers, formal validation and PCB release process will give you big efficiency gains.
Stress-Free design environment
Of all the most powerful PCB level electronics design tools, this one is easiest to learn and use.
