When you’re talking electronics, the thermal pad is a key element in ensuring your PCB doesn’t overheat. But managing your thermal pads and Vias can be an overwhelming and tedious task. You may have dozens in your design and it’s easy to make an error that could cause your device to overheat.
With Altium Designer Via and thermal pad management is automated with templates, libraries, and Via and pad management panels.
You get expanded Via stacking options with Altium– saving you time by allowing you to manage your thermal pads and Vias within a given library. Your templates store base configurations. These configurations are then automatically named and used to define Vias and pads placed in your PCB design file.
Altium Designer enables you to: :
Quickly access your templates directly from the PCB using the pad and via template panel
Access templates in your routing rules
Make Via and thermal pad changes within your design with just the simple click of a button using our global editing features
