I am new in PCB design, so excuse me if this is a bad question! I know the basic electronics and how to draw schematics in Altium. But about SMD parts, I am a little confused! How can I find SMD transistors, diodes, resistors, inductors and capacitors? Is there any specific library for them? If not, how should I find them?
Probably the easiest (and fastest) way is actually building up your own library. You could use the vault too, but don't ask me how that works ;).
File > New > Library > Schematic Library to build a symbol library. If you open your [library].SchLib theres a handy wizard (
Tools > Symbol Wizard).
File > New > Library > PCB Library to build a footprint library. The two IPC Wizards you'll find in your [library].PcbLib under
Tools > IPC Compliant Footptrint ... are, at least in my daily worklife on of the killer features of Altium.
