Pcb Population Service
When you’ve successfully completed your PCB design, it’s time to place the components. “Populating” the board can be done manually by a skilled technician, but for most most modern manufacturing, this is done by machine through PCB assembly services. Your component placement requires significant consideration and can be a challenging process, because PCB population determines how easily your board can be manufactured. Don’t trust your design to just any software. Trust Altium Designer.
When considering factors such as component orientation, placement and organization, you need reliable design software to help ensure you’ve got everything where it needs to be– and an easy process that supports output documentation for your manufacturers. With the Altium Designer Gerber X2, everyone involved in both your PCB design and in the manufacturing process, have shared access to output documentation, allowing you to easily initiate a review, request design team feedback and quickly create detailed fabrication and manufacturing drawings.
