Dates for Nine Dot Connects’ Rise of Mechatronics Free Technical Seminar Still Available


Reading time ( words)

Does mechatronic design equal 3D design? When we look back at the concept of 3D, we can see that it has already been a game changer in the way we design products. SOLIDWORKS became the dominant mechanical engineering tool by making it very easy to design in the 3D space. In 2008, Altium Inc. revolutionized the EDA industry by allowing the ECAD world to readily communicate with the MCAD world through 3D design. Prior to this capability, there was a process chasm between these two disciplines. 

There has been lot of talk as of late about mechatronics, with the simultaneous blending of electrical and mechanical aspects of the design. This will not only require a new thinking in the way we design in software, it will also require new ways of thinking in manufacturing. If we really step back and think about it, to make mechatronic design feasible, we have think beyond the 2D world in which we design our electronics. 

Nine Dot Connects has teamed up with SOLIDWORKS for a 12-city roadshow to explore this topic of mechatronic from a process, software, and manufacturing view. During this lunch & learn presentation, attendees will learn how the electronics industry has changed, where it is going, and the tools that are available to enable them to become part of this new age of mechatronics, regardless of your current trade or skill. With change comes opportunity, with opportunity comes growth. The field of mechatronics is open to those who want to expand their horizons. Anyone who has a role or interest in PCB / FMB design should attend. For those who are currently immersed in it, this is an opportunity to see where the industry is going. For those new to or interested in the field, it is a chance to see where the opportunities lie.

Dates still available are as follows:

    • September 19, Tuesday - Livonia, MI
    • September 20, Wednesday - Minneapolis, MN
    • September 21, Thursday - Bellevue, WA

AltiumLive to Feature Altium Designer 19 Release

10/03/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
This week, Altium Designer 19 will be officially launched to the public during AltiumLive, which takes place October 3-5 in San Diego. I asked Altium COO Ted Pawela to give us a preview of Altium Designer 19, and to explain how AD19 fits in with the company’s long-term plans. He also discusses Altium Live’s plan to provide PCB design content that is not vendor-specific to help support the entire industry, not just customers.

Institute of Circuit Technology Hayling Island Seminar

10/10/2018 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
After an extreme summer heat wave had left trees dehydrated and struggling to morph into their customary display of reds and golds, the leaves were brown and brittle as the great and good of the UK printed circuit board industry crossed the bridge from the mainland of the south coast of England to Hayling Island for the autumn seminar of the Institute of Circuit Technology on September 20, 2018.

Mentor Preparing for Next-Gen PCB Designers

08/20/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Millennials are the future of our industry. What does this mean for the PCB design community? How do we attract more of these smart young people to the world of PCB design? I asked Paul Musto, director of marketing for Mentor’s Board Systems Division, to explain the company’s initiatives aimed at drawing more young people into PCB design
