If you’re like most engineers and designers, before designing the layout for a multilayer PCB, you probably start by creating the layer stackup. A well-designed stackup allows you to place more circuits on each board and enables you to check circuit vulnerability, signal integrity and correct routing impedances. But to achieve this, you need powerful, easy to use design tools and editors. With Altium Designer 18 you get the advanced Layer Stack Manager with built-in impedance calculator.
Altium Designer 18’s Layer Stack Manager makes it simple to visualize and configure board layers, drill pairs, and even add sublayers. Altium Designer 18 boasts 20 Major Features, 100 minor improvements and more than 600 bug fixes over the last software release. With powerful 64-bit architecture and a fresh, modern user interface, Altium promises increased productivity thanks to streamlined workflow, and improved speed and stability.
The powerful features of Altium Designer 18 include:
Powerful PCB Design and Board Layout– easily maneuver objects on the board layout with controlled component placement and create layer stack templates for reuse
Simple 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.
ActiveRoute Interactive Routing– user-guided, constraint-driven routing automation
Real-time BOM Management and a seamless PCB documentation process
