Electronic Design with Altium Designer


Note: This is a module belongs to the classes, billing features separate for this module will be allowed if the content matches. The classes using this module are listed below.

Altium Designer is a PCB design software, an electronic design automation software package for printed circuit board, FPGA and embedded software design, and associated library and release management automation. It is developed and marketed by Altium Limited of Australia.

In 1985 Altium launched the DOS based PCB design tool known as Protel, and later named Autotrax (and a limited feature-set low cost version Easytrax). Originally sold only in Australia, it has been exported to the United States and Europe since 1986.

In 1987, Altium launched the circuit diagram editor Protel Schematic. The launch of Protel 98 in 1998 saw the consolidation of all components, including Protel Advanced PCB and Protel Advanced Schematic, into a single environment.

Protel 99 introduced the first integrated 3D visualization of the PCB assembly, and Altium Designer version 6.8 from 2007 was the first to offer 3D visualization and clearance checking of PCBs directly within the PCB editor. In April 2011 Altium moved from Australia to Shanghai in China.

  • SPICE mixed-signal circuit simulation
  • Pre-layout signal integrity analysis
  • Netlist export
  • Reporting and BoM facilities
  • Multi-channel, hierarchical schematics and design re-use
