If you’ve ever had your PCB damaged due to heat issues, you know how important it is to consider the temperature of your circuit board. Today’s high power PCB’s can generate a lot of heat inside, so designers and engineers need to know early in the design process which components will dissipate the most heat and which thermal interface material (TIM) will work best. When you need up-to-the minute materials information and supply chain data, trust Altium Designer.
Altium Designer gives you access to more than 300,000 ready to use components with all of the necessary data information you need, including thermal resistance, recommended guidelines, parts availability and real-time cost estimation tracking. So when you’re struggling between the advantages and disadvantages of thermal pads and thermal paste, let Altium Designer show you the way.
Altium Designer makes it easy to keep everything in check with these tools and features:
Electrical Rules Check (ERC)
