A circuit board is comprised of a variety of parts with various names and purposes. For instance, some of the names of the real-world parts that are placed on a circuit board are resistors, inductors, microcontrollers, and more. Designers choose these parts for their function. But during schematic capture, designers have to create the footprints for those parts and name them, and with the right software, both of these processes can be far less tedious than usual.
Altium Designer is a true all-in-one circuit board design platform. From schematic capture to creating output files, users can do it all. Altium Designer makes handling naming your footprints to selecting the real-world parts a cinch with its innovative technologies.
Altium Designer features:
ActiveBOM for selecting parts based on function, price, and availability
ActiveRoute for quickly creating a schematic
Native 3D for viewing the circuit board both inside and out
Draftsman for updating documentation and assembly files easily
