PCI Routing Guidelines
As the demand for more complex electronic devices increases, engineers and designers must push the boundaries of PCB design and technology. This isn’t a simple undertaking. High speed PCI design makes PCB layouts and routing much more challenging, requiring awareness of critical specifications, PCI guidelines and the use of dedicated tools for impedance calculation, differential pair routing, length matching and interactive pin swapping. But you don’t have to waste time and money buying separate tools and software to meet your needs– Altium Designer gives you everything you require in a single unified design platform.
Altium Designer 18 features powerful intuitive routing technology called ActiveRoute®. ActiveRoute® makes routing multi-layer, high density, high speed boards an easier process. When you launch the command, simply click on a pad, select the connection you want to route and the interactive router defines a routing path. Altium knows that all of the careful component placement and planning still means nothing if your board won’t work, so ActiveRoute includes built-in features such as Routing Conflict Resolution, Walkaround, Hug and Push, Stop and Ignore to give you the options you need for dealing with existing objects.The powerful PCB Editor also includes a net analyzer that continuously monitors locations of objects on the board, and automatically updates connection lines when any object is moved or edited so you can make changes and corrections easily.
