At Altium, we build leading tools and solutions that enable Engineers and PCB Designers to reach new heights in productivity and creativity. We're constantly working to meet the changing needs of our users and that's why we've consistently delivered major annual releases for the past 7 years straight.
Meet the next generation of Easy, Modern, and Powerful PCB design.
Take a glimpse at some of the new and exciting functionalities coming soon in Altium Designer 20!
Expertly maneuver around obstacles on a densely populated board, routing deep into your BGA, eliminating the need for extra signal layers. With an intelligent obstacle avoidance algorithm, you're able to avoid obstacles using tangential arcs, making the most efficient use of your board real estate.
Editing traces to improve signal integrity can be time-consuming, especially when you have to edit individual arcs and serpentine tunings. This is why Altium Designer 20 incorporates a new gloss engine and advanced push and shove capabilities to help speed up this process so you can improve your productivity.
High-speed digital circuits depend on signals and data arriving on time. If traces are improperly tuned, flight times vary and data errors can be abundant. Altium Designer 20 calculates the propagation time on traces and provides synchronized flight time for high-speed digital signals.
High-speed signals create electromagnetic fields that can cause cross talk, data errors or be radiated unless proper return paths are provided. Proper return paths allow noise currents to return to the ground through a very low impedance, eliminating the problems. Altium Designer 20 will monitor return paths and check the return path integrity of all reference polygons so that you won’t have to manually do it.
