Evaluating the Software

15-day evaluation to get you started

Before requesting an evaluation, think about why you want the software. It is important for you to get a feel for the software and be happy with its operation.

Altium Designer is a modern Windows tool so the environment is familiar. There are a few things you should consider:

  • Watch the clock
  • Familiarise yourself with the environment
  • Keep notes
  • Take advantage of our sales team

The countdown starts when the evaluation license is activated. Ensure that you have the time and prevent interruptions throughout the evaluation period.

During your evaluation, you will discover some cool stuff, not-so-cool stuff and build up a lot of questions. Make sure you note them down so you don’t forget. You can drop us a line via our free telephone and email technical support throughout your evaluation. Don’t be scared to ask for help.
