The PCB library is where you store your PCB footprint models. This can include 2D models as well as 3D models. You should be able to easily organize and manage your PCB library, especially considering the number of footprints that are generally included in a design. Altium Designer makes it easy to manage your PCB library and assign various properties to each footprint.
You can also use Altium Designer to manage other libraries. It offers a Schematic library, Integrated library, Database library, and Altium Vault. The Altium Vault is a unique technology that lets you effortlessly create components and footprints and link them to actual components with real-time supplier data.
Using Altium Vault through Altium Designer you can:
Control the complete journey of your PCB project from design to manufacturing
Pair your designs with the right real-world component using a centralized platform
Reuse trusted custom components in future PCBs
Increase communication and collaboration across projects
Whether you want to efficiently use traditional schematic and PCB libraries or want to access the Altium Vault, let Altium Designer help you work smarter. Download a free software trial now to get started.
