Electronic Component Parts
An electronics design is a collection of connected components. As an engineer, it your job to connect those components to complete the design. Then you have to link those components to real-world parts. Creating the components can be a time-consuming endeavor, but those components can be saved and used again with the right software.
When you use Altium Designer, you can quickly create custom component models in each of the electronic design domains that you want to use it in.
Your component can include valuable information:
A symbol for the schematic
A simulation model for the circuit simulator
A pattern or footprint for the PCB layout
An IBIS model for signal integrity analysis
A 3D model for visualizations and clearance checking
You can then bring all that information -- the models, parametric component data, and live links to part suppliers -- together and save it in the Altium Vault where it can be used in future electronic projects.
