Altium and Rosenberger partner to help PCB designers save time
Altium Ltd., a global leader in Smart system design automation and provider of solutions for 3D PCB design (Altium Designer) and embedded software development (TASKING), released a new range of PCB component libraries for Altium Designer supporting a wide range of Rosenberger’s board-mount connectors.
Rosenberger develops and produces a wide range of standard and customized connectivity solutions spanning high frequency and fiber optic technologies. Their product portfolio includes RF connectors, cable assemblies, RF test and measurement devices, automotive products, fiber optics, and custom copper and fiber optic assemblies.
“With Altium now supporting Rosenberger connectors in Altium Designer, our customers can create designs with a new level of confidence,” commented Josef Gramsamer, Product Marketing Management at Rosenberger. “With precise and validated 3D footprints, now available from Altium, designers can create quality connectivity solutions with a greater focus on the design itself. We are very happy to be working with Altium to deliver such a high standard of detailed Rosenberger footprints.”
By releasing board-level components to support Rosenberger connectors, Altium eliminates the need for engineers to spend time developing PCB footprints, schematic symbols and complex 3D models. Using STEP models provided by Rosenberger, Altium can also ensure the quality and precision of the footprints, making them ready to use immediately.
The board-mount connector series covered in this Rosenberger release include:
- SMP, P-SMP, Longwipe-SMP and mini-SMP coaxial connectors
- SMA (screw-on) and SMB (snap-on) coaxial connectors
- 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm BNC connectors
- FAKRA SMB RF connectors
- RosenbergerHSD® automotive interconnects
- DIN 41626-II mixed card edge connectors
- QMA coaxial
- Mini-Coax Inserts
- RoDI® - Rosenberger Diagnostic Interface Products
With the need to keep up with shorter design cycle times, Altium Designer subscriber customers enjoy access to Altium’s extensive Content Vault which includes board design support for more than 150,000 components, which now includes Rosenberger along with other vendors such as Texas Instruments, Microchip, FTDI and more.
More information on board-level components and how they are accessed in Altium Designer is available from AltiumLive and in the related blogs. All connectors in this release are available from Rosenberger directly and via their global sales network. For more information, go to www.rosenberger.com.
