In the past, fabricators and manufacturers weren’t always concerned about whether or not a PCB was lead-free or not. But with the introduction of RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) in 2004, things changed dramatically. Today, when it come time for manufacturing, it’s important for you to indicate where RoHS specifications are and are not needed in your design.
With Altium Designer, properly documenting your PCB with RoHS or non-RoHS specific designators is a simple step that can prevent you from dealing with unnecessary production delays. Altium Designer works hard to ensure you have everything you need for successful PCB design– from schematics capture to production– and that everything meets stringent compliance standards.
Altium Designer includes release/data management tools which include the following capabilities:
Version control each design, and compare differences textually and visually
Create templates for documents and design rules
Use configuration management and track all design changes through ECO
Create and release design and assembly variants
