Parts of Library
Most designers and engineers spend too much time searching for components for their PCB designs. Managing several libraries in multiple locations can be cumbersome and time- consuming. But what if you could have PCB design software that allowed you to organize models, parts and components into libraries that work best for you? You can have all that and more– with Altium Designer 18. Altium makes it simple to manage your PCB library.
Altium Designer 18 includes schematic, PCB, integrated, and database libraries, making it easy to create, save, and organize your components into libraries that you control. How things are structured is entirely up to you. Plus, Altium gives you full access to Altium Vault, a system for quickly creating and reusing design content that can be placed directly into your new designs with confidence.
With Altium Designer 18, you have access to the following library types:
Schematic Library– the simplest level of library; can be used as a model library (holding
component symbols) or a component library
PCB Library– used for storing PCB footprint models; a 3D model can be added to each
Integrated Library–for users who prefer their components pre-packed and pre-verified in a single file
Database Library– this library couples design data with your company’s data
Altium Vault– for simple, company-wide access and management of your components, with revisioning, and real-time supplier information
