All Inclusive Design Environment

Design Review Use Case

Design reviews are critical to being successful. Capture design discussions through contextual commenting in the web browser or in Altium Designer to ensure feedback is recorded and actioned effectively.

Electronic Collaboration Use Case

Work together with other engineers, anywhere in the world. With Git based version control and visual differencing capabilities, you can ensure designers remain in sync at all times.

Customer Interaction Use Case

Keep your customer up to date with progress by sharing design snapshots or work in progress, accessible in the web browser, from anywhere, on any device.

Manufacturer Collaboration Use Case

Release your fabrication and assembly data with confidence and enable your manufacturing partner to view and comment on your manufacturing output data directly in the browser.

MCAD Collaboration Use Case

Stay synchronized with your mechanical engineering counterparts with fileless, bi-directional collaboration through native integrations with SOLIDWORKS, Creo and Inventor.

Software Collaboration Use Case

Debugging hardware effectively requires access to the design. Embedded software engineers can now search, select and cross probe schematic, layout and 3D in the browser.

Remote Working Use Case

Remote working is no longer the exception, but the norm. Whether you are at home, on a customer site, at the airport, or anywhere else in the world, remote working has never been so simple.

Anonymous Sharing Use Case

Experience ultimate freedom with the ability to share snapshots of your design anonymously with anyone in the world using a simple link. All they need is browser access, no sign up required.

Embedded Viewer Use Case

Want to show off your design on your blog? Embed your design onto your site with just a couple of lines of code, providing an immersive, fully interactive design experience for your users like no other.

Unified interface

Altium Designer has been built from the ground up as a powerful, single-application electronics development environment that contains all the advanced design tools you’ll need to complete your design project.

Global Editing

Altium Designer puts flexible and powerful global editing tools at your fingertips. Make changes to all or specific components at once. Versatile selection tools allow you to find, filter and change the components you need, fast.

Simple and Intuitive

Altium Designer gives you the power to effortlessly create multichannel and hierarchical designs. Simplify complex designs into something visually pleasing and easy to follow.

Schematic driven design rules

Design starts from the schematic which is why Altium Designer allows you to define high-tech interfaces and their constraints all from the schematic editor.

Hierarchical and Multichannel design

Simplify any complex or multichannel design into manageable logical chunks with Altium Designer Hierarchical Design tools.

Interactive Routing

Design the highest quality PCB layouts in a fraction of the time with Altium Designer's advanced routing engine that includes several powerful routing options such as walk around, push, hug and push, ignore obstacle, push and shove, and differential pairs.

Stackup Planning

The layer stack manager has been completely updated and reworked including impedence calculations, materials library, and more.

3D visualization

Clearly visualize and interact with your designs in native 3D with the advanced 3D engine in Altium Designer

Variants Support

Manage any number of your design variants without having to create separate projects or versions of your design.

Real time BOM Management

ActiveBOM provides you with automation by supplying part information such as availability and price from selected suppliers, so there are never any surprises.

Powerful Part Search

Directly place and migrate electronic parts that meet design, availability, and cost requirements with global parametric supplier search.

Multiboard Assembly

Eliminate the challenge of ensuring the form and fit of multiple boards in an enclosure.

Automated project release

Altium Designer empowers you with a controlled and automated design release process that ensures your documentation is easily generated, complete, and well-communicated.

Professional PCB documentation with Draftsman

Improved features in Draftsman make it even easier to create your PCB fabrication and assembly drawings.
