Altium Designer
The new release of Altium Designer 22.6 brings important schematic capture improvements that further align Altium Designer with the needs of modern design engineers. This month’s announcement focuses on new schematic capture upgrades:
Altium Main Image
Multi-functional Pins - Many modern integrated circuits have multifunctional pins. Now users can program pin names into parts and select pin configuration directly in a schematic sheet.
Altium Main Image
More Support for Alternative Parts - Instead of being constrained to the same part across all channels in a multi-channel design, you can easily specify alternative parts in schematics when defining a variant.
Altium Main Image
Active Links in Text - Need to place a reference to another net or component in a schematic sheet? Now you don’t need to use the search through your schematics, you can place a clickable link directly in text to make navigation quick and easy.
To upgrade your AD22 to the newest version and take advantage of all available upgrades, navigate to the Updates page from the Extensions and Updates window. We’re always focused on improving the functionality and user experience of Altium Designer, giving users everything they need to be productive and successful. Upgrade today to get access to the newest productivity features in Altium Designer.

Joe Fjelstad, an industry veteran with a 50-year career, talks with Zach about solderless assembly on the OnTrack Podcast. Known as the Occam process, this solderless assembly methodology builds up conductors on PCB layers through direct conductor deposition rather than through application of solder on a finished board.
