In this video, explore the topic of component libraries and add a pre-created library that holds all components required for the course project.
- [Instructor] Libraries are a critical aspect…of Altium Designer.…So a library is really any pre-built component…and in Altium we're going to be using pre-built…electronics components very often throughout our project.…So just take a look at some of our libraries and just…navigate over to my righthand side here and should be able…to find my Libraries panel.…And this will show me some of the currently installed…libraries on my specific machine.…
Each machine could be different depending on which…company you may be working for they'll probably have…some of their own custom libraries and so on.…And just the default install I should be able to see…two main libraries, miscellaneous devices and miscellaneous…connectors just to start with.…So let's take a look at miscellaneous devices here.…And what I have here is just a whole number of different…components and I can navigate through these here…and I get a nice visual preview of the schematic…representation as well as the PCB footprint…of that specific component.…
