New Design Possibilities
View all of the new features in this release.
Intelligently Automate Your Documentation
Easily create your fabrication and assembly drawings with fully customizable documentation templates.
Offline Design System
Always remain in complete control of what network data you share with the outside world with the Offline Design System. Easily specify connectivity for specific applications within Altium Designer including preferences sharing, licensing servers, part supplier connections, and more.
Streamlined Design Rule Editor
Easily create and manage your advanced design rule queries with the new Design Rule Editor. Understand exactly how your queries interact together and avoid any conflicting rules with an organized query validation interface.
Hole Tolerance Definitions
Guarantee reliability when manufacturing your PCB by defining specific hole tolerance values for pads and vias. Specify precise hole tolerances as part of your manufacturing documentation to ensure you get it right the first time, everytime.
PADS® Logic Exporter
Save time exporting your design files from Altium Designer to PADS® with the PADS® Logic Exporter. Design the most advanced board layouts in Altium Designer, then instantly translate your schematics and board layouts to your workspace in PADS® Logic.
Integrated TASKING Pin Mapper
Share design data instantly between your PCB and embedded software project with the integrated TASKING Pin Mapper. Seamlessly share pin assignments, processor chip identifiers, and symbol names between Altium Designer and your TASKING toolset.
Enhanced Pin Length Definitions
Accurately and efficiently route your high-speed design layouts with enhanced pin length definitions in the component pin properties. Enhanced calculations for pin lengths include the length of the internal bond wire without requiring time-consuming manual calculations.
Net Color Synchronization
Ensure documentation accuracy and visual color notifications with net color synchronization between schematic design and the PCB layout. Instantly sync net colors to your board layout through a managed Engineering Change Order.
Technology-Aware xSignals Wizard
Easily Design accurate high-speed board layouts with technology-aware configurations in the xSignals Wizard. Automatically create xSignals classes and match length rules for DDR3, with other advanced high-speed technologies being added in the future!
