You’ve successfully completed your circuit board design and you’re ready to send it off to a manufacturer. But first you need output documentation such as drill files, net points, layer stack data, and BOM. Traditionally, gerber files are the most common method used to share design data and communicate design intent to a manufacturer. But gerber files can be less than desirable– files and data information must be generated separately, then detailed notes must be added to each. This can be tedious, time consuming and missing documentation can cause manufacturing delays. Fortunately Altium Designer 18 has the powerful PCB solution you need.
Altium Designer 18 implements powerful tools like the Gerber X2. Gerber X2 empowers everyone involved in the PCB design process– from design teams to assembly– with shared access to output documentation. Effortlessly create highly detailed assembly and fabrication renderings, initiate team reviews, request feedback and organize data in a file format that is easily interpreted.
Altium Designer 18 includes 20 new features, and 100 platform improvements, promising a smooth design process from start to finish.
Altium Designer’s powerful Gerber-X2 file format allows users to:
Create your PCB design rules to reflect your manufacturer's requirements by implementing a design for manufacturing (DFM) strategy
Easily view, cross-probe share and print design documentation
Quickly perform searches of supplier data in real time
Real-time BOM management and a seamless documentation process
