Schematics design is usually the first step in designing a printed circuit board– where you create a roadmap of your PCB design layout. Typically, schematic capture has been done separately from the rest of the design process; once the schematic has been captured, it is translated using EAD or ECAD software. But there’s no need to waste time or money on multiple software programs for your PCB designs. With Altium Designer, you get everything you need to complete your entire electronic project, from start to finish, in a single unified platform.
Altium Designer 18 is Altium’s newest and most advanced design software yet! Integrate your schematics with your PCB layouts, review MCAD constraints, access Electronic Rule Checking (ERC) which enables you to catch errors early in the design process by performing automated checks specific to your design.
Altium Designer streamlines your workflow and enhances your design experience with features such as:
The ability to change a model link, symbol or footprint at the graphical-level
Grammar checking enabling you to fix underlying design issues
The ability to design specific rule configurations
Customized selection of board components and PCB layouts using a synchronized, unified interface
