Routing topology simply refers to PCB connections. There are several types of topologies which are dependent upon component placement on your PCB board. To determine the best topology for your design, it’s a good idea to do a pre-route analysis, because what works for one design might not work for another. Component placement and routing can be a time-intensive task and might seem overwhelming. But Altium Designer 18 has the solution you need to route complex topologies across multiple layers with ease.
Altium Designer 18 features ActiveRoute®– user-guided interactive routing technology– empowering you to route quickly and accurately for optimum PCB performance. With Altium’s powerful PCB Editor, users can manage connectivity, define topology by apply the Routing Topology design rule and easily monitor object locations with the net analyzer. Additional features include a differential pair router, a topological autorouter and length and phase tuning with Guide Path Spacing. So no matter how dense or complex your PCB is, you can rest assured knowing your routing will be accurate, thanks to Altium’s intuitive platform.
