PCBs used to be made of a simple insulated core layer with a single thin layer of copper on one or both sides. Those days are gone. Today’s modern high performance PCB stackups have anywhere from 2 to more than 30 layers, and the overall thickness can vary greatly. Defining your board thickness might seem complicated, but Altium Designer 18 makes it simple.
The latest release from Altium– Altium Designer 18– is the most modern, powerful, easy to use PCB design software available today. With advanced features and flexible tools at your fingertips, it is possible to design even the most complex PCB in record time. The Layer Stack Manager enables you to quickly configure and define the layer stack, configure drill pairs and even add sublayers. A built-in impedance calculator and Impedance Formula Editor makes calculating impedance and defining board thickness easy. .
