Nine Dot Connects, the only nationwide VAR for the SOLIDWORKS PCB design suite, along with representatives from SOLIDWORKS, will be presenting "The Age of the Fabricated Mechatronics Board" in 12 cities throughout the U.S. starting in September. This lunchtime presentation will review the key innovations that drive the PCB as we know it today, and the migration and inevitable integration of ECAD and MCAD tools. This is a must-see for anyone who wishes to embrace the next generation of technologies that will tightly couple both electrical and mechanical elements of the design.
