Join Nine Dot Connects on November 29 for a free webinar, "Spelunking in the Altium Schematic Preferences."
What’s interesting about the preferences in Altium Designer is that they provide options and flexibility, making the tool more customizable for the user. However, many of us do not go spelunking into the preferences because we do not feel we have full command of the tool, or we simply choose to accept the default settings. This defeats the purpose of the preferences.
It dawned on Nine Dot Connects that the preferences are a powerful feature of Altium Designer, but they are generally overlooked. They also realized that trying to show all the preferences in one hour would not allow the topic to be covered adequately. In this webinar, Nine Dot Connects' focus will be specific to the schematic preferences, and will demonstrate and explain all of these schematic preferences.
This free webinar will be held on November 29 at 2:00 pm Eastern.

DesignCon is always a great place to check out the latest PCB layout and simulation software tools. During DesignCon 2018, Guest Editor Kelly Dack met with Sam Chitwood, a product engineer with Cadence. Sam explained how the Cadence Sigrity simulation software now allows users to make decisions early in the design process, and how this can help optimize the design of the power delivery network and ensure signal integrity in complex PCBs.
