The Best Results Come from PCB Design Services Using Altium Designer

The power of Altium Designer combined with the professional services and resources recommended by Altium will give you your best design results.


Software for PCB design services to make circuits come easy.

You have an important design project ahead of you, but what you don’t have is the resources to get it done on time. Not only do you need help, but you also need a powerful PCB design system to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. Fortunately, Altium has the answers to your problems. With Altium Designer, you have the most advanced PCB design software system available today that can handle all of the requirements of your design. Additionally, Altium also has service and resource recommendations for you so that you can connect with the most skilled and experienced help possible. You don’t need to look any further for help, Altium has got you covered.

Your Key to Getting Design Help; Altium’s Partnership Program

With the amount of effort that goes into the design of electronics, most companies will need additional resources to help with their excess workload. Sometimes help is needed with printed circuit board design and engineers will turn to a service bureau for help. Other situations may require additional software and tools to complement the existing PCB design process. Whatever is required, these companies are looking for the help of qualified industry professionals with skills and solutions that they can rely on. The problem is finding those skills and resources that will fit the need. For example, outsourcing a PCB design to a service bureau could result in a mismatch of data if the service bureau uses a different set of CAD tools. This could ultimately lead to confusion, missing data, and unexpected delays.

With their partnership program, Altium provides service recommendations to their customers who are seeking outside services and resources. You can be assured that the services, products, and resources that Altium recommends will meet stringent requirement levels. These requirements include a standard of skill and proficiency levels with Altium software, as well as general experience in the industry. You no longer have to worry whether or not the PCB layout services that you are looking for are competent with the design tools that you are using. If you have chosen them based on the Altium partnership program, they will have the software skills and expertise that you need.

The Advantages of PCB Design Services Equipped with Altium Designer

When you need the help of outside design and layout for printed circuit board services, you probably are on a tight schedule with a deadline coming up. You don’t have time to worry about data translations and the resulting redundant data integrity checks to verify those translations. Here is another area where Altium Designer is a real benefit.

With Altium Designer’s signature unified printed circuit board design environment, you can be assured that the data format that you start your design within the construction of your libraries will be maintained throughout the design. Your schematic and layout will easily synchronize with each other, and you can pop in and out of Altium Designer’s simulation and verification tools with ease. Then when sending your PCB layouts to an outside design service, you won’t have to worry about translations and interfaces. With your service bureau equipped with Altium Designer, their team can pick up your work at any phase of the printed circuit board design; whether it is schematic capture or PCB layout design, they will work smoothly with your design data.

Outside design services offer many benefits to your design process as well. Their PCB designers have years of experience with different design technologies including high-speed design, FPGA design, high-density routing as well as working with many different board types. Their design team will have a wide range of extensive experience ranging from electronic design to PCB prototyping and PCB fabrication, to manufacturing processes and PCB assembly services.

With Altium Designer, Working with Your Service Bureau is a Natural Work-Flow

Armed with Altium Designer, your service bureau can focus its experience on getting your design done right.
