Microvia For Impedance Controlled PCBs
Today’s high performance electronics depend on high-speed data transmission, with cutting edge designers constantly pushing the limits of what is possible. The size limits of modern PCB boards have led to multilayer design and the use of microvia technology in order to place more components on a single circuit board. Creating a controlled impedance PCB relies on multiple factors and PCB designers need access to the reliable routing tools, impedance calculators and flexible editors required to get the job done. Fortunately, Altium Designer 18 has everything necessary for professional quality, high speed PCB design, integrated into in a single unified design platform.
Altium Designer 18, the latest software release from Altium, includes 20 major features, and 100 platform improvements for superior design performance, with a modern, easy to use platform for fast implementation. And Altium’s template libraries make managing microvias simple. Define, name and store microvia base configurations with just a few clicks. Everything is at your fingertips.
Design features of Altium Designer 18 include:
64-bit architecture and multi threading for functionality, speed and stability
A simple design verification process
Rigid-flex and multi-board assembly integration
Seamless PCB Documentation
Real-time data, component and BOM management
User-guided, constraints driven interactive routing
