Basics Of Pcb Designing
In today’s world of “smart” devices and wearable technology, there is an ever-growing need for smaller, more efficient ways to power electronic devices. Advanced PCB design is more in-demand than ever. But even as technology grows by leaps and bounds, the basics of PCB designing are still the same. A designer starts by creating a schematic of the circuit design. Then, using EDA or ECAD design software, the board is laid out. The design gets exported into an industry standard format and the resulting file acts like a set of instructions for the manufacturing phase. Finally the PCB is printed, fabricated and manufactured. There are many software programs available to help you through these multiple steps and processes, but only one allows you to complete everything on a single unified platform– Altium Designer.
Altium Designer’s modern easy-to-use user interface and powerful 64-bit processing speeds make designing your PCB– from schematic capture to assembly– fast, easy and error-free, so everything works the way it’s supposed to the first time. Altium’s powerful tools, features and resources are delivered in an integrated design environment, allowing you to move seamlessly between design elements without having to switch between software programs.
