Selecting components for design should be an easy process. After All, the best PCB layouts start on a foundation of great electronic component placement. What happens when your design starts to come apart due to supply issues with components? With Altium Designer 18, the Component Management feature ensures that these kinds of scenarios don't happen by leveraging complete control over the component selection process.
Altium Designer 18 integrates supply chain information directly in the bill of materials (BOM) to minimize supply issues, designing with components with unknown lifecycle states, or selecting unapproved parts. Leverage price, availability, and real-time supplier information to meet your design goals by linking components with real-time pricing and availability from your parts suppliers and over 200 verified Altium suppliers.
Develop next-generation electronics in one end-to-end design environment with high-performance, easy-to-use solutions that significantly increase design productivity, such as:
Component Libraries containing over 300,000 ready-to-use parts
Powerful design reuse tools
Real-time cost estimation and tracking
Dynamic supply chain intelligence
Native 3D visualizations and clearance checking
Taking the time to place your components efficiently with Altium Designer 18 will get you a board back from manufacturing that works right out of the box. Request your free trial today!
