There is a place for everything, or so you hope! Avoid errors and place your components right the first time with a cohesive, end-to-end design environment. Placement of electronic components on the PCB layout is quick and easy using Altium Designer 18.
Altium Designer 18 allows you to quickly maneuver objects on the board layout with controlled component placement and create layer stack templates for reuse. With organized and efficient design, PCB design professionals can place and drag components that push, avoid, and snap-to alignment with other objects on your board layout.
Where your component is located on the board can impact the board’s functionality, reliability, and manufacturability, so consider applying the following guidelines as you place your components:
Adhere to board edge clearance rules from your manufacturer
Follow component spacing rules from your manufacturer
Do not concentrate high-temperature components in the same area of the board
Separate digital and analog signal components
