Reading time ( words)

Altium LLC has launched Altium Designer 19, the latest version of the company's flagship PCB design software. Altium Designer 19 introduces new features that make designing complex, high-quality projects easier, faster, and more accurate from concept to production.

Altium Designer 18 took the PCB design experience to a new level by introducing a modern graphical user interface, multiboard functionality and a redesigned bill of materials (BOM) management system all built on 64-bit architecture. Altium Designer 19 expands on Altium Designer 18 with new and powerful design technologies that simplify the process of creating even the most complex designs and bring unparalleled unification to the schematic, layout, and post-design processes.

"Altium Designer 19 builds on the consistent performance and reliability improvements of previous versions with modern PCB design tools that are powerful, easy, and modern," said Sergey Kostinsky, Chief Technology Officer at Altium. "Altium Designer 19 users will also be able to access a convenient and connected design experience that keeps everyone in sync through seamless connectivity with Altium 365.”

Altium Designer 19 leverages new and powerful EDA technologies with a singular focus on elevating the user experience. New capabilities that accurately model high-density interconnect structures, give designers absolute confidence when manufacturing cutting edge high-density boards. An enhanced PCB materials library allows designers to create accurate impedance profiles for routing and manufacturing. The optimized component panel and part search allow parts to be found and placed in the design even if they are not already in the library, with the automated acquisition of supply chain as well as CAD data. 

“Altium Designer 19 is yet another example of Altium’s investment into cutting-edge products that make design easy throughout the entire electrical engineering product development cycle,” says John Watson, senior PCB engineer at Legrand North America. “Altium has always been committed to the PCB designer, and this release is the latest example of how they’ve continued to consistently equip me with the tools I need as a designer to complete my projects.”

Design Data: File Naming Conventions

12/03/2018 | Kelly Dack, CID+, EPTAC
Working for an EMS provider, I am often asked to make sense of customers’ PCB design data packages that must be audited for completeness and manufacturability. Quite often, EMS operations receive data to produce a PCB design and begin the auditing process, only to be called off due to customer changes. Sometimes the data is incomplete, or it is missing one or more of the data files required to fabricate the PCB at the supplier. There are also occasions where a customer has sent files that were supposed to be the updated version but were not changed at all.
