Fortunately, PCB design systems like Altium Designer have been created to make design reuse easy. A unified design environment really helps so that the sheets, the schematic, and the layout all easily synchronize with each other without having to be forced. Altium gives you different options to work with when doing design reuse including:
In this webinar, we will explore the following areas:
- Managed Schematic Sheets: This allows you to keep sheets of circuitry available for use in a managed content server for all in your organization to have access to.
- Device Sheets: Sheets of circuitry are stored as a normal schematic sheet in a designated location giving your users the ability to place a symbol on their schematic that will access these sheets.
- Design Snippets: This allows you to save any selection of schematic or layout circuitry to be reused elsewhere.
- Copy and Paste: You still can use the standard copy and paste functions to recreate circuitry as needed.
