Managing and defining the thermal pads and Vias on your PCB is no easy task. There may be dozens of pads and Vias in your designs and you don’t have the time to manually create (and recreate) them all for each project.
Altium Designer introduces automated pad and Via templates, template libraries, and pad and Via management panels.
Altium’s expanded Via stacking options save you precious time by allowing you to manage your thermal pads and Vias within a library. Templates store the base configuration– including its shape and size, pad stack type and more. These configurations are automatically named and used to define pads and Vias placed in your PCB design file.
With Altium Designer you are able to:
Easily access your templates directly from the PCB via and pad template panel
Access pad and Via templates in your routing rules, allowing you to place your various Vias on the fly using templates from your specified range
Make pad and Via changes within your design with the click of a button using Altiums’s global editing features
