Parts of the Library
As an electronics designer, you probably manage several libraries for your PCB designs. But searching for components, parts and models through multiple libraries can waste a lot of your time– time you’d rather spend designing. Altium Designer 18 empowers you to access, organize and structure your components and models into libraries that work best for you.
Altium Designer 18 includes PCB, schematic, database and integrated libraries, allowing you to easily create, save, and organize everything into libraries that you have complete control over. And Altium Designer includes full access to Altium Vault, Altium's own Design Data Management solution, working in harmony with Altium Designer to handle design data with secured integrity.
Altium Designer 18 gives you 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
Integrated Library–for users who prefer their components pre-packed and pre-verified in a single file
PCB Library– used for storing PCB footprint models; a 3D model can be added to each
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
Altium Designer 18 puts the control over your libraries back in your hands. Sign up here for more information and start your free 15-day trial.
