Free PCB Layout Software
Proper placement of components on your board is oftentimes one of the most time consuming tasks you need to do. And for good reason. Good placement leads to good routing and ultimately, less time spent cleaning up your PCB. Although Altium Designer software can’t do the board layout for you, it can assist you in terms of organization and efficiency, giving you high quality results in less time.
With Altium Designer you get the flexibility and control to design your layout in ways that best suit your individual needs. For instance, utilizing “cross select mode” you can select components in your schematic and have them automatically populate your cursor in the PCB.
Altium Designer also allows you to:
Specify the component order, or
Have Altium Designer pick the order for you
Organize your components into rooms before moving them onto your PCB layout
Create these rooms in the schematic, view in the VCO and place on your board
Whatever your layout preference, Altium Designer has the tools to make the process run smoothly.
