Altium Designer 20 PCB design software

Monday, 21 October, 2019 | Supplied by: Altium Limited



Altium Designer provides a complete software environment for the design and realisation of PCBs. The latest release, Altium Designer 20, offers major upgrades to the unified design environment, user experience and PCB design capabilities.

Designing as an individual or within a team, users can design boards from simple to complex, from single PCB to multiboard systems, from low-frequency to high-speed, and from logical design all the way to physical board and bill of materials. Users can create schematics and PCB layouts, run circuit simulations, select and source electronics components from various manufacturers and document designs for manufacturing.

The product includes interactive routing for complex HDI boards, said to accelerate design times by over 20%. High-speed PCB routing capabilities enable efficient design of high-density and high-speed boards using modern SerDes like PCIe 4.0/5.0, USB3.2, 100G Ethernet and parallel buses like DDR3/4/5.

Multiboard design leverages ActiveBOM capabilities, including supplier search, BOM rule checking and live part choices. Users can export 3D PDF files of the multiboard assembly to view and manipulate 3D assemblies. The software also has high-voltage design capabilities, with creepage rules that help maintain high-voltage clearances across the PCB surfaces to prevent electrical arcing hazards for power supply and mixed-signal device designs.

The user experience has been enhanced with quick access to data across schematic, layout, BOM generation, design documentation and other elements of the unified design environment. Over 200 user-suggested enhancements are available.
