Not validated? You just received the dreaded call from your manufacturer. Back to the drawing board! Did your current PCB software lead you to believe your circuit was validated and it wasn't? Are you looking for a free software download to help make your PCB drawings accurate? Altium Designer 18 is the solution.
Altium Designer 18 is the most widely used electronics design solution that delivers the most powerful, modern, and cohesive design environment for schematic and PCB. The ERC (Electrical Rules Check) integration allows professionals to define the reporting level for each of the possible violations that can exist on a source schematic document, such as the ones associated with buses, code symbols, components, harnesses, nets, parameters, documents, etc. When users perform ERC, many issues are checked in addition to the before mentioned violations, such as duplicate designators, net labels not touching wires, and duplicate sheet numbers. This sophistication eliminates any possibility for ERC violations.
Other features of schematic capture include:
Hierarchical design to manage large, complex projects
Multi-channel design capabilities provide a platform for design reuse
Synchronization between different parts of the design with simple automated design annotation
Altium Designer 18 includes a modern and powerful unified schematics capture editor where professionals are equipped to handle any design challenge. Request your free trial today and rest assured your design is verified and validated.
