Migration from Altium to PADS Professional

Complete instructions for translating a project created with Altium Designer

The challenges of electronic design have changed a lot in recent years, and will continue to change in the future.

Those who design PCBs with Altium Designer know these challenges very well, and know where the tools they use could do more.

PADS Professional is the most powerful of PADS' tools for PCB Design, easy to learn, cost-effective.

Steps to follow

The following diagram illustrates the main steps to be followed to transfer projects made with Altium Designer into PADS Professional. The steps include creating a centralized library, translating cells into that library, creating a new project in PADS, importing the schematic, running the translator, and finally packaging and synchronizing the project.
