Design Rule Basics to Get You Ready for Manufacturing

Design rules are a must for any PCB design, but for them to be active and effective they need to be properly scoped and prioritized. Too often designers construct rules only for them to create conflict or be completely ignored or overtaken by another rule.

The updated Altium Designer rules and constraints editor allows designers to easily define and save design scope for any scenario. And to combat unused design rules, the new rules interface validates and checks your design rules for any conflicts or usability issues. Getting started with design rules can sometimes be a difficult task, but it doesn’t have to be. 

Watch this video to learn the topics covered below:

  • The new design rule interface
