Altium Video Tutorial – PCB Layout

Posted by in on 5-15-13

This is the third post in our Altium Designer PCB design video tutorial series.  The first video showed you the basics of creating a PCB project in Altium.  The second demonstrated how to work with schematics.  In this video we’ll be building on the schematics we drew up last time and create a PCB layout for our design.
