Design With Purpose, Create With Passion

Designing electronics isn’t just your profession, it’s your passion. Yet the majority of your day is dedicated to mundane tasks that stifle your creativity and pull you away from the actual design. Altium Designer leverages innovative technologies to help you focus less on process, and more on design. With more time to concentrate on the creative aspects of your daily workflow, you can produce more inspired designs and rediscover your passion for the art of engineering.

UNIFIED DESIGN ENVIRONMENT

Altium Designer consists of all the tools required to produce a PCB from concept to manufacturing. A suite of comprehensive design editors resides in a single all-encompassing environment allowing the seamless exchange of design data between them. Whether you're capturing a schematic, laying out a PCB, or reviewing MCAD constraints, it truly is a unique experience that provides a natural electronics workflow.

UNIFIED SCHEMATIC
Quickly design PCB layouts and custom-select board components with a synchronized, unified interface.

UNIFIED PCB
Learn how to easily manage and modify various elements of your design from schematic to board layout with a unified design environment.

UNIFIED DOCUMENTATION
Automate the creation of fabrication and assembly drawings with active documentation linked to your PCB design.

TRUE NATIVE 3D AND MCAD INTEGRATION

A PCB development platform injected with MCAD DNA with one database supplying both the electrical and mechanical view. Multi-model support, component placement, clearance checking, and rigid-flex design take a lifeless 2D setting into the 3D realm. Mechanical data exchange provides integration between ECAD and MCAD, which were once segregated engineering disciplines.

3D ENGINE
Create and manage 3D design prototypes with clearance checking, 3D measurement, and STEP model import/export.

MCAD CODESIGNER
Learn how to effectively communicate design objectives with synchronized features that offer real-time collaboration.

RIGID FLEX
Save time on flexible designs with simplified, integrated circuitry solutions and 3D visualization.

SUPPLY CHAIN AND DATA MANAGEMENT

Integrated access to over a hundred suppliers makes it easy to select the best parts for your design. Supplier information can be applied at the library, Altium Vault, or schematic level furnishing links back to the source. Revision control provides a design history and the ability to compare one version to another. A push button release process provides an easy, repeatable means to generate a comprehensive release package. All the pieces together produce a complete data transparency and management solution.

PART SELECTION & SOURCING
Save time locating components and maximize design time with intelligent, data-rich sourcing analysis.

VERSION CONTROL
Protect, manage, and track PCB design file versions ensuring data transparency and integrity.

VAULT
Easily manage PCB work in progress with an automated environment suited to your workflow.
