Over 35 years of electronics design expertise,
built to meet today’s design challenges.
Quickly capture your design intent with a rich set of wiring tools, design verification, transparent netlist creation, and variation management.
Effortlessly design advanced electronics with intuitive navigation through all hierarchy levels, nets, and components.
Make the best part choices at design time with an intelligent platform that brings together schematic symbols and PCB footprints, lifecycle status, and supply chain planning in one centralized location.
Explore ideas before committing to manufacturing with fast and accurate simulation in an advanced SPICE engine.
Efficiently explore an optimal layout with intuitive board planning technology. Native 3D support, layer stack management, and high-end controls including etch factor and surface roughness models give you all the power you need in a single design space.
Rapidly verify connectivity and design flexible circuitry for multi-board setups with product-level wiring, mating, and Native 3D. A clear definition of flex zones and bending lines makes it easy to verify fit for Rigid-Flex designs.
Route your way with a high-performance engine that lets you push, slide, hug, walkaround, and tune for delay at any angle.
Expertly design high-speed electronics with a powerful tuning engine. Includes advanced pattern support, an EM solver for accurate propagation delay, impedance extraction, and Easy HDI structure integration.
Effortlessly collaborate with your mechanical designer with bi-directional data transfer between Altium Designer and your MCAD tool. Supports industry-leading MCAD suites including Solidworks, Inventor, and Creo.
Connect your team and design data together in one centralized location for easy access. A scalable platform meets the needs of growing companies, including design workspaces, project lifecycle and release management, and team collaboration.
Ensure that your design is ready for production with support for every file that your manufacturer might need. We’ve got you covered with ODB++, IPC-2581, and Gerber X2 with a built-in CAM editor.
Instantly create detailed fabrication views of your board and components with Draftsman. MCAD-like dimensioning and intelligent reports make it easy to communicate design intent.
Use Altium Designer for as long as you pay for it. Includes a Standard Subscription for the latest updates, Altium 365, and more.
Buy an Altium Designer license once, and use it forever. Includes a Standard Subscription for the latest updates, Altium 365, and more.
Altium Designer's On-Demand licensing offers a global floating license capability, within the geographic scope of your license and the conditions set out in the EULA, without the need to implement your own dedicated server. This system provides a flexible, streamlined approach to licensing, allowing you to obtain a license in seconds, when and where you want it. For other license types, please contact your sales representative or chat with us.
Yes! The Altium Designer import wizard allows you to import your legacy design data from other ECAD tools such as ORCAD, PADS, Expedition, Allegro, DxDesigner, Eagle, and Zuken CR-5000/CADSTAR.
Altium 365 is the electronics product design platform that unites PCB Design, MCAD, data management, and teamwork together like never before. Design, share, and manufacture, all in Altium Designer without changing a thing about how you already work.
You'll receive a perpetual or time-based license of Altium Designer plus a Standard Subscription plan, which includes access to Altium 365 and:
- The latest design technology updates
- 24/5 live chat support
- Access to the AltiumLive community
After your first year, in order to remain on subscription you will be charged an annual subscription fee.
