Manage Interconnected Multi Board systems with Strong PCB Design Software
Make sure to keep your interconnected multi board PCB systems in order with the right PCB design software to track your progress from schematic to layout and then to production.
TOPICS IN THIS SOLUTION
Design software working to get your electronic systems design process through to manufacturing.
When working with any number of circuit board, components, or printed circuit in a system-level design, you’ll want to be sure of your design process. With HDI Printed Circuit Board, multilayer PCBs, PCB stackup, board-to-board connectors, impedance, and manufacturing, PCB designers have plenty to worry about. Imagine if your circuit layers could be arranged, maintained by in-circuit test, and have the copper foil placement or surface mount components necessary without worrying about the capabilities of your design software.
Tired of running into system errors and overloads during design of complex interconnected Printed Circuit Boards? With Altium Designer’s clever 64-bit system architecture, you’ll never run into a system problem again. Render final products with ease and precision using minimal memory storage to view life like products prior to production. Using Altium Designer, your product design stage will be as seamless as the designs produced.
When the time comes in every designers’ career when they will need to create complex multiboard systems, the environment in which they design inevitably shifts. Memory issues, long load times, and clunky handling to say the least. These however are mitigated by Altium Designer’s software architecture.
With hierarchical design features integrated into the software, you can easily manage complex, high density PCB designs leaving you even with room to breathe. System performance becomes the least of your worries with Altium Designer PCB design software.
Added Features Make System Design Easy
There are a number of built in features into Altium Designer that make system design management as smooth as it is. With the ability to customize each feature to make it efficient for you, you’ll be able to effectively maximize workflow.
- The tighter your design density gets, the more complex system management becomes. Here are a few ways Altium Designer deal with that. Learn more about creative routing solutions in Altium Designer.
- Improving efficiency with Altium features is easy. Learn more about schematic capture, layout and database efficiency .
- Altium Designer’s user interface is also a great feature making the design flow more seamless.Learn more about Altium Designer’s user interface.
So often we forget about the aesthetic of the product we build. How will it look aside from its schematic layout? Again using Altium Designer’s powerful system design, final layout assemblies can be viewed and rendered quickly and effectively. No more running to third party rendering software as Altium Designer can handle it all.
Whether you are presenting rendered images to a potential investor, or simply wanting to navigate the design in real time with a mechanical engineer, you’ll be able to quickly fly through designs. Altium Designer has very advanced 3D engine architecture taking the memory problem out of the equation.
Whether it’s visualizing the layout of your solder and solder mask, or complementing your design process by having a degree of viewability for other team members as you prep for manufacturing and design review, having the design tools to easily switch between modeling and layout is beyond helpful.
Real Time Realistic 3D Designs
Altium Designer’s visualization capabilities extend from routing, to final rendering and everywhere in between. No more guesswork until the end, you’ll know how the physical design is looking all the way throughout the design lifecycle. When you are ready to send off 3D designs, you can be confident your file will play nice with other viewing software.
- Drafting made easy with visualized drawing tools. Watch a webinar on easy drafting in Altium Designer.
- With interactive routing, you’ll be able to visually see real time routing while ensuring proper design look and feel. Learn more about interactive routing tips.
- When you send 3D files with Altium Designer, you can easily export the PDF to the common Adobe viewer to ensure other design houses can view properly. Learn more about exporting your PDF’s to Adobe.
Make sure to track your design progress with the 3D image viewer
With Altium Designer being an all inclusive design software, the question of system performance may arise, especially with elaborate, multi board PCB designs. In order to handle such a tall bill, Altium Designer employs very stable 64-bit architecture to keep things running smoothly while at peak performance. This means that even when you are running ultra high density PCB interconnected multi board systems designs at full tilt, your system will run fast and stable.
As an experienced designer, you can begin to see how design time can add up quickly. Now begin to consider the cost of design downtime, or even slow time. Cost savings is just another excuse to go with more efficient design software saving you and your company a load of time and resources.
Testing the Architecture
We’ve stated that Altium Designer’s design software is, in fact, advanced and stable, but is it truely? And does it even matter? Taking a look at the following articles, you can decide for yourself if the software stands up to the hype and if it is in fact worth the plunge.
