Hello, I've been designing a pcb with an RF chip. There's a few polygon pours around the board and I want to place another one, a whole Ground, over the whole board to fill the rest gaps. I set the polygon's order to lowest, because it's over the rest polygons and everything looks good. Gaps are now filled with the "ground polygon" The problem i
I am a Electrical engineer and have over 3 and half years of experience of professional pcb Designing.I gained wide exposure on all aspects of pcb layout expertise is on altium designer, Eagle,PADS,P-CAD and Allegro. I worked with many local and international clients and hands on experience of working on high speed (...)
Hello , how or better in what simulate and optimize RF pcb trackt on pcb? pcb is createt in altium designer. Why do I ask? I must create a low cost pcb (FR4 2layer ) with 50ohm track on power 75W. I'd like to see what will be where the impedance and loss. For example, around relays (...)
I have updated an 'old' design that was originally created using the summer '08 release of altium designer. The project compiles with a few warning related to IO ports and pins, which make little sense (xxxx contains IO pin and output sheet entry objects). I retained the critical aspects of the old pcb, the outline and connector positions, (...)
Hi, I am looking to convert an .brd file for use in altium for a student project. I tried using the method on the altium website but it did not work. The link for reference is posted below. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thank.
While giving netlist in altium designer 6.6, one pin of the IC remains not connected on pcb although it is connected to GND in schematic. I came to know about this error after troubleshooting n board itself. Even this error also not shown in DRC. Can anyone please explain how this type of errors can be corrected or reason for this error?
Hi all, Can someone explain the difference between electrical type of pins for components like passive, open collector etc? Generally which type should be used in which scenario? I was working with a schematic of a component with both AGND and DGND tied to one common ground. Is it ok to use electrical type as 'power' for both pins? or should I u
Hi everyone, I am going to make Arduino sensor shield with 2 current sensors and one temperature sensor. That's why, I need to make double sided pcb by using altium designer. Can you suggest or give me a website,video,book,textbook something like this to understand how it is done? Thank you.

Let's cut to the chase, I' m using altium designer 14.3 and I can't find a solution for a problem that confuses me for days. The problem is that when I try to print my pcb the printing size (...)
I am a new altium designer user, and I only have five days to finish a flyback power supply design project assigned by my advisor. Basically, it is a very fundamental and common scheme. But I didn't use this software before. Can anyone give me suggestions to facilitate my using of this software? I mean, five days later, can I make it true to genera
Hello together, i have problem with altium designer: The button "Favorite Interactive Routing Via Size" is missing??? Normally it should be under Preferences->pcb Editor->Interactive Routing But there is nothing, i´ve attached some picture how it should be and how it is.

Hello, I'm using the altium designer 16 and i making a small board. I have done with routing and i trying to check it through eurocircuits online pcb checker. But unfortunately i found that some annular rings have different size from others. Althrough, all vias are the same, same diameter and same hole size! What may it could be? I (...)
Hi I would like to make a groove on pcb, which cannot cut through the pcb, instead it should have a small depth which can be user defined. So which layer in altium designer shall I draw the groove on? and how to define its depth and width? Thanks

i think altium is easy to start with since alot of online resources (in youtube) available. I chooses correct path or not? If i am not means give me some option? Please friends help me to start my new carrier Thanks in advance K.Bhoobalan looks like you have alot of interest in pcb design. but i be
Hello , I Know if It can import the netlist from Orcad to modify the circuit Printed Already Made altium ? I file orgine made ​​orcad capure . While the pcb was made ​​of altium . I would like to know if there is a way to make changes in orcad and import altium pcb ( Layout ) (...)
hi dear,i know that AI is very important today. when i uses altium designer and select Auto route and rules are strict it don't work perfectly and i had to use manual route???? why AI is not in altium designer that can be very powerful in routing! it is impossible????8-O thanks for reply.
Hello, In altium designer 15.1 there is a new field "Type" when create a new blank component sheet. Do you knon which is the use of this field and if for example the "mechanical" choice is for components like relays?
I'm going crazy here. I was given a pcb design to fix for a client. I opened it up and Something is screwy and I can't fix it... Problem 1) When looking at the long layer names (Right click on a layer tab -> select "use long layer names"), the yellow layer reads "Silkscreen Bottom". After Right clicking and selecting "use medium layer names"
Does any one know if there is a feature in altium designer 15 or can someone recommend filter "line" to easily detect the following case: * High Speed track as microstrip that has a segment that run over discontinuity in reference plane (example running over a gap on the split plane reference or large polygon voids created by some high voltage t

If I understand right, you want to design a flex pcb to be used with FFC connectors, not the pcb where the connectors are mounted. If so, you'll start to sketch FFC copper pattern, either as a library component, or directly in your design. It doesn't make much sense to start the design without any knowledge of pcb layout in general and (...)
I can open the files without a problem in altium designer v. 15.1.9. However, exports to Eagle or DesignSpark are unavailable.
Hi, I've installed altium designer 14.2.4 on windows server 2008 r2 and it works good but when I want to create new pcb file, it crashes and give a "Information" title box that says "Please wait a moment" forever and also give "access violation error" for Core3D.dll . do you know what is the problem? please help me to solve the problem Thanks

I guess you are asking about operation of a specific pcb tool, but you forgot to mention it. Is it altium designer?
you can draw any shape in altium. example you can use "Place>Full circle" command for circle. You can make Arc, straight line, etc., Make sure you have selected a net from the object property menu(By double clicking the object). Another way, you can import 2D outline from anyother software in DXF format and pour "polygon" inside the layout. Dr

I am beginner in the altium, and need guidance on how to proceed with the schematic and pcb layout mainly. The board will keep all the components welded on one side only. The other side will need to be free to be engaged in an LCD. I have many doubts, did just a basic course to know and use the basic tools available in altium. It will be (...)
Anyone know how to make a half pad in altium designer? If exist one easy way, pls tell me. I will be glad!:grin:
For simple 2-layers pcbs Proteus is a best tool that can let you trace and prepare for production in 2-3 hours. If you want to work with differential pairs, parallel busses you better use altium designer. But it need very powerfull PC also.
Hi, I need a pcb designer for one of my project. The design should be on altium. I can provide you with the Schematic dwg and the part #s of ICs. One important thing, the Arduino Due Board will be placed on pcb board, so the Arduino Due Pins will be printed on the board. If anybody is interested, please let me know. Thanks
Hi, all I am new for circuit design. now I have some questions for it: 1. I want to design a four-layer board, and I am confused how can I place the ground line, ground plane or others? 2. No error when I compile the schematic, but it shows error when I add ground net? 3. when I draw the schematic, I just place a power ground on it. Whether I c
