Altium Designer is a Printed Circuit Board and electronic design automation software package,which is widely used by electron designer and PCB manufacturer. It is developed by Australian software company Altium Limited,who developed another brand of PCB design software Protel. It is a powerful integrated electronic design software no matter what demand you need: HDI PCB design, embedded copper coin PCB design, PCB impedance, high frequency PCB design etc. But by now it only can be operated on windows system.
It is perfectly functional integrated with: schematic design,circuit diagram simulation, PCB edit,topology logical,auto PCB layout,Signal Integrity Analysis,and other technology such as design generation, etc.By using Altium designer,it enables electronic engineers to effortlessly and Qualitatively connect with every facet of the electronics design process.
Except inheriting the previous advantages and features of Protel 99SE, Protel DXP, the new Altium Designer has embedded some new improved function and high grade application.
It’s platform expand the traditional design interface for board to board. With global integrated design features from FPGA and SOPC,it enables electronic engineers to effortlessly integrate the designs of FPBA, PCB design, and embedded design development. Thus it require high powerful computer system due to the integrated extra design function on FPCB and embedded software with basically inheriting the previous advantages and features of Protel.
