Altium Designer – Testing Satellite Vault (Screenshots)

Here are some  screenshots from testing of Satellite Vault.

I created a component lifecycle: New, Checked, Used:

  1. When I create a component, it is marked as New
  2. After I finish schematic I go through checking procedure which includes component checking. I compare pin names/numbers/footprint with datasheet. Once I am sure the component is correct I mark it as Checked.
  3. When a board is build and I am sure the component is 100% correct, I mark it as Used.

When I double click on a component in library, I can immediately see what is status of the component. This way I know which components I have to check, also useful when more people are using one common library. I will continue testing this feature to see the real usability.
