What Is A Printed Circuit Board
A Printed Circuit Board is a board that connects electronic components. Over the years it has become a sophisticated component from the start as a basic building block of any electronic design. The PCB has moved from being one layer boards, to the multiple layers used today such as the 20 + layer boards found in your smartphone.
Altium Designer differs from other applications in that it brings all of the editing tools that you need, into one environment. What does that means for you? You can edit the schematic and layout the printed circuit board all in the same software application. Having all the tools inside one environment allows the designer to shift their focus from being tool-oriented, to being design-oriented.
Features Altium Designer provides to engineers are:
Learn as you go - Wherever you are in the environment, over a menu command, a dialog, a panel, or a design object, you can display comprehensive information about whatever was under the cursor.
Editors, Panels and Toolbars - Each editor has its own set of panels, menus, toolbars and shortcut keys while the panels can be enabled via the buttons down the bottom right of the software
