See What's New

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.

Coming Soon

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!

Coming Soon
Any Angle Routing

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.

Coming Soon

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.

Coming Soon
Interactive Properties Panel

Have complete clarity to design objects and functions with the updated properties panel. View pertinent properties, supplier info, and even life-cycle info all in real-time.

Coming Soon
Schematic Rendering

A smooth and fast schematic experience awaits thanks to DirectX in Altium Designer. This new implementation smoothes out zooming, panning even dramatically speeds up copy and paste functionality.

Coming Soon
Schematic Dynamic Data Model

Unnecessary re-compiling of large schematics can take up a lot of time. This is why Altium Designer uses a new dynamic data model, which incrementally and continuously compiles in the background eliminating the need to perform a full design compile.

Coming Soon
Time Based Matched Lengths

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.

Coming Soon
Creepage Voltage Rule

In high voltage circuits creepage can be a problem, causing leakage current that can jeopardize your design. Altium Designer 20 has new features that can help you avoid creepage

Coming Soon
Return Path Checking

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.
