Learn how to use Altium in electrical engineering projects. Find how to generate printed circuit board (PCB) designs in this introductory Altium course.
- [Justin] Altium is a global leader in electronics, engineering, and design software used throughout numerous industries. Altium Designer is a powerful design package that helps simplify the design and development of electronics and printed circuit boards. Hi, I'm Justin Flett, and welcome to Learning Altium Designer. In this course, we'll take a look at the entire process of generating a PCB design project from the ground up.
First, we'll learn the basics of the software and how to generate simple electronics documents and drawings that can be used in our project. We'll then look into creating some PCB layouts, and finally, we'll learn how to generate some industry-standard final reports and outputs. Not only can Altium generate electrical schematics and documents, but it also has an immense, continuously growing electrical library with millions of electrical components and symbols pre-built.
Now let's get started with Learning Altium Designer.
