We can define electronic components as “basic discrete devices in an electronic system that are used to affect electrons or their associated field.” In terms of a circuit board, electronic components include resistors, transistors, capacitors, switches, diodes, relays, integrated circuits, LEDs and more. Within each component, there are hundreds of variations that might affect PCB design and function.
Altium Designer 18 delivers a powerful all in one PCB design platform, with the tools, features and design environment you need to gain knowledge about and access to the electronic components in your own PCB designs. Altium’s real-time supply chain data provides information about parts and component pricing, availability, and suppliers so you never waste time searching for an obsolete or out of stock part. And Altium Designer 18 supports single-setup library migration so that you can easily access and utilize your existing component libraries while working in Altium.
Altium Designer 18 offers these benefits:
Powerful schematic, PCB editors and Board Layout with layer stack templates
A Robust Layer Stack Manager with built-in impedance calculator
Visual Power Analysis with PDN Analyzer
Advanced Design Rule Checker and Design Verification
Interconnected Rigid-Flex and Multi-Board Assembly
User-guided, constraints driven routing with ActiveRoute®
Seamless Documentation Process with OutJobs, Draftsman® and ACTIVEBOM®
Altium Designer 18 simplifies component management so you can focus on designing.
