Pete Starkey continues with his review of the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit held recently in Munich, Germany. The second day commenced with a new product launch. “Working together is hard” it read on the screen. Statistics indicated that 33% of new products were late getting to market, of which 28% were late due to insufficient collaboration, and up to 50% of potential revenue could be lost through being late to market. Then the screen read “NEXUS makes it easy!”

For this month's issue, we invited a sampling of professionals whose experience centers on the electronics industry in the military and aerospace world, including experts from design, PCB manufacturing, and the assembly arena to sit down with us for a frank discussion. Our discussion centered on the challenges associated with military work, including the new regulatory requirements for cybersecurity, dealing with leaded vs. lead-free components, and the differences and similarities with the commercial world.

Among Jewish theologians of the 1st century AD, there was a significant debate about whether or not resurrection was possible. PCB designers in the early 21st century have had a similar concern about future availability of nonwoven aramid laminate and prepreg. The stakes may be somewhat less (depending on your theological bent), but the future of a wide variety of programs designed around the properties of (Dare I mention the name?) Thermount(R) hangs in the balance. What was Thermount exactly and why was there such a furor when DuPont announced its premature demise?
