    Upgrade to Altium Designer 18 | Visual Transition Guide

     

    High Performance Made Simple

    Interconnected Multi-Board Assembly

    Connectivity management and enhanced 3D engine allows you to render design models and multi-board assemblies – faster and with better shading and realism.

    Modern Interface Experience

    New, cohesive user interface provides a fresh and intuitive environment, and optimizations that enable unparalleled visualization of your design workflow.

    Powerful PCB Design

    64-bit architecture and multi-threaded task optimizations let you design and release large, complex boards faster than ever.

    Fast and High-Quality Routing

    Visual Constraints and user-guided automation enables you to route complex topologies across layers – routes at the speed of a computer, but the quality of a human.

    Real-time BOM Management

    Latest supplier part information linked to the BOM enables you to make educated design decisions – on your own timeline.

    Seamless PCB Documentation Process

    Document all assembly and manufacturing views in a single, cohesive design environment, with linked source data for updates at the push of a button.

    Altium Designer 18 enables you to create interconnected multi-board projects and render high density, complex PCB assemblies quickly and accurately. The modern user interface, along with updates to enhance routing, BOM creation, rule-checking, and manufacturing hand-off capabilities, enable you to design more efficiently and productively than ever.
