Evaluation Guide Intro
Welcome to the Altium Designer Evaluation Guide!
We’d like to congratulate you on taking the first step towards learning how to use Altium Designer. There’s a lot to learn, so strap yourself in for a rewarding journey.
If you’re completely new to Altium Designer, then you might find some differences when compared with your current PCB design tool. Altium Designer combines the overarching design process into one seamless, unified design experience, integrating the distinct PCB design phases including:
- Schematic capture
- PCB layout
- Manufacturing output documentation
- Component library creation
As you can see, there’s a lot to soak in before your design can be transformed from concept to completion. But don’t worry, you’re in the right place. Let’s get started.
