Today’s electronics designers and engineers face many decisions while creating high performance PCBs. Choosing between stripline and microstrip routing is one such decision and each method has its pros and cons. To make the best choices for your design needs, you need the most modern, powerful PCB design tools available. From differential pair routing to a built- in impedance calculator, Altium Designer 18 is the PCB design software you’re looking for.
Altium Designer 18 features an easy-to-use Layer Stack Manager that allows easy visualization and configuration of board layers and drill payers. The Layer Stack Manager includes a simple Impedance Formula Editor, allowing you to view, modify and calculate Impedance and Trace Width formulas quickly. Altium has worked hard to ensure we’ve equipped you with everything you need for success. But if you’re still looking for a differential impedance calculator, Altium recommends a 3rd party calculator, such as those available from Polar Instruments and In-Circuit Design.
Altium Designer 18 includes these key features:
A Robust Layer Stack Manager with built-in impedance calculator
Powerful schematic and PCB editors
Advanced Design Rule Checker
Interconnected Multi-Board Assembly
Fast and High-Quality Routing
Real-time BOM Management
