Polar Impedance Calculator
A well-planned stackup is crucial to the operation of your multilayer PCB. It not only allows you to place substantially more circuits on a circuit board, but also helps you to check for circuit vulnerabilities, signal integrity and to make sure you have proper routing impedance. To complete this process, you need advanced, yet easy to learn PCB design tools and editors. Altium Designer 18 delivers everything you need in a single, unified design platform, including an advanced Layer Stack Manager with built-in impedance calculator. And while Altium Designer doesn’t include a differential impedance calculator, we recommend the Polar Instruments stackup impedance calculator in conjunction with Altium Designer 18.
Altium Designer 18 includes a powerful, advanced and simple to use Layer Stack Manager with built-in impedance calculator to simplify the design process from beginning to end. Easily visualize and configure PCB layers, add sublayers and configure drill pairs in no time.
Altium Designer 18 features these capabilities:
Powerful PCB Design and Board Layout– controlled component placement, simple maneuverability of the board and the ability to easily create reusable layer stack templates
Easy Design Verification– verify your PCB design using built-in mixed analog and digital circuit simulation; analyze pre- and post-layout signal and DC power delivery
Interconnected Rigid-Flex and Multi-Board Assembly– modify and define rigid-flex layer stacks using electrical checking and synchronization of multi-board connections.
Real-time BOM management and a new seamless PCB documentation process
ActiveRoute Interactive Routing– user-guided, constraint-driven routing automation
