Altium Designer

Altium Designer is the PCB design tool of choice for a large number of the UK's leading electronics companies. 

Design professionals tell us how they appreciate the software's joined-up approach which lets them concentrate on design and deliver their world-leading products accurately, on time and on budget.

Altium Designer combines:

  • Schematic 
  • ECAD libraries
  • Rules & constraints
  • BoM
  • Supply chain management
  • ECO processes
  • World-class PCB design tools

We believe Altium's role is to help liberate designers to tap into their ability to innovate. After all, your job is to be creative. 

Altium Designer is not a conventional design system. It approaches design differently to the traditional design systems that struggle to meet the current challenges, yet alone those of the future. To see the benefits in Altium Designer you need to look beyond the traditional concepts.

“It’s a very user-friendly tool. Altium Designer has the flexibility that allows you to do your quick, turnaround designs as well as your complex, multi-layered designs. And up to high volume. You’re happy with the data you send out. You know that data is going to be good for one board or for one million boards.”

NB - PCB Designer, Roke Manor Research Ltd.


Electronics design matters. Anyone who wants to make a difference should be able to. With Altium Designer you are not being constrained by your design tools. To meet your requirements right first time, Altium comes in multiple license options and configurations.
