There are a variety of printed circuit board (PCB) platforms available to choose from. While some may come at a low cost, they might not necessarily have everything a designer needs to complete their board.
There is one platform available, however, that allows designers to rapidly design boards by providing them with all the resources they need to get the job done: Altium Designer.
Altium Designer is different from other platforms because it gives you all the editing tools you need in one environment, so you can shift from being tool-oriented to design-oriented. With Altium Designer you can easily move back and forth between the schematic and PCB, so moving design changes from the schematic to the board -- or vice versa -- is simple and non-intrusive. Altium Designer also lets you go back and forth from a 2D view of your board to a highly realistic 3D view. Other features and benefits of Altium Designer include:
Design error checking and reporting
Advanced routing technology
ECAD libraries containing thousands of components
Real-time cost estimation and tracking
