What is Altium CircuitStudio?

Altium Circuit Studio is an entry-level but professional PCB design suite. Which offers interactive automated routing, intuitive ECAD-MCAD collaboration, integrated SPICE simulations, and unparalleled design efficiency at an affordable price point.\"\"

Often compared to KiCad because of the small difference in price point. Altium CircuitStudio comes with a perpetual licence fee of $495. With its native 3D, version control and over 300,00 component library and the Altium promise. This software will definitely prove to be better than others in its class.

Opening up this software showcases a deliberately minimal interface that requires lesser resources to run on your computer. This showcases the demographic this product is aimed towards. Exactly as it says on the box entry-level professionals or freelancers or undergraduate students.\"\"

This is not a full-professional product which is made evident by some things like, not being able to multi-object drag and drop, remapping hotkeys (this is a very mouse-heavy program), and no.DbLib support.

CircuitStudio is unable to define its place, for a perpetual license fee of $495 you get 90% of the features of Altium Designer but those last 10% are the real challenge, this means that software is limited to designing low-level PCBs, which can be good for a freelance, but the price at which you get this software may just be too high for a graduate student willing to pay $120 per year for the Altium Designer student version, but without the ability to sell your designs, which CircuitStudio offers.

The best thing which circuit studio offers at this price point is the Altium component library. This software is a good investment to start your PCB design and schematic journey while getting hands-on lessons and tutorials straight from the Altium community.
