Altium Designer Software Subscription Levels
Choose the level that’s best for you.
Maintain access to the latest Altium Designer updates as they are released.
Create board-to-board connectivity and verify net-to-pin assignments and pin-to-pin interconnects. Changes and updates can be pushed down into affected PCB projects or bought back up to the source system schematic. A system-level BOM can be created to provide a single source BOM across the multi-board project, eliminating the need to manually combine individual sub-project BOMs.
A physical counterpart to the logical system design in a multi-board schematic which is populated with imported PCB data from the multi-board project. Each PCB module in the system design schematic is represented by a physical PCB.
Multiboard Mechanical Integration
Allows each separate board to be rotated and aligned with each other. Additional parts, boards, assemblies, or STEP models can also be imported and positioned within the multi-board assembly.
A Workspace is a secure and private environment for all of your data and the people you invite to work together.
Set up separate workspaces for a variety of teams and departments.
Design Review & Sharing
Live Design Sharing
Share your projects with as many people as you need at no additional cost. All of your project stakeholders can view, measure, search, cross-probe, and comment on your live design, seeing all of the latest changes and updates right in the browser. Learn more
Comment to an entire document or a specific object, highlight the problem area directly in the design, and tag people and get them straight to the context of your comment, all without leaving your design environment. Learn more
