Circuit Board Symbol
During the process of designing your circuit board, you will have to place symbols on the schematic to represent a component. The symbol’s shape usually reflects the component’s function and perhaps one or more pins. The look of the symbol is generally up to the designer. In order to quickly create these symbols for your circuit board project, you need an agile, easy-to-use circuit board design software.
Altium Designer can help you quickly create your schematic by facilitating easy symbol design and placement. You can store and manage your symbols in a library as a simple domain models, or you can save them as unified design components.
Altium Designer has a number of ways you can store your symbols and footprints:
Schematic and circuit board libraries
An Altium Vault lets you reuse your symbols to save time and money on future circuit board projects and makes all of your components available company-wide. Interested in learning more about Altium Designer, the best circuit board platform on the market? Request your free trial today.
