Altium Limited has released 3D footprints for Altium Designer, supporting a range of Rosenberger's board-mount connectors.

Rosenberger develops standard connectivity solutions in high frequency and fibre optic technologies. Its product portfolio includes RF connectors, cable assemblies, RF test and measurement devices, automotive products, fibre optics, and custom copper and fibre optic assemblies.

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, readying them for immediate use.

Josef Gramsamer, product marketing manager at Rosenberger, said that this range of PCB component libraries from Altium will enable designers to focus on their design itself, sparing them the trouble of creating their own footprints for the connectors they use.

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 and 75 BNC connectors
  • FAKRA SMB RF connectors
  • RosenbergerHSD automotive interconnects
  • DIN 41626-II mixed card edge connectors
  • QMA coaxial
  • Mini-Coax Inserts
  • RoDIRosenberger Diagnostic Interface Products

Altium also said that Altium Designer subscribers can access its Content Vault that covers board design support for more than 150,000 components including Rosenberger, as well as other vendors including Texas Instruments, Microchip and FTDI.
