A Tour of Altium Libraries

The Libraries can play a major factor in design process efficiency.

When a good library is in place:

  • Knowledge of a component is captured and shared by all members of the design team.
  • The generation of the Bill of Material is automated.
  • The look and feel of the company's schematics and PCBs are consistent, professional, and organized.

There is no doubt that every designer wants a good library; however, the big question is, "What's necessary to make a good library?" In this webinar series, we will introduce the necessary building blocks to create a library structure that can help your organization improve its workflow.

This webinar will briefly walk you through all of the libraries that Altium Designer offers:

  • Schematic Libraries
  • PCB Libraries
  • Integrated Libraries
  • Database Libraries
  • SVN Database Libraries
  • Component Libraries and their association to Vault
