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.

In order to understand the current climate, we have to look at the division of labor that took place in electronic design about 40 years ago. The labor was divided into two processes, with the first being the design itself. This process was (and still is) owned by the electrical engineers. Though circuit design has changed, the methods for representing the circuit have not. Paul Taubman of Nine Dot Connects explains.

Bay Area Circuits is on a quest to help PCB designers and design engineers. For the past few years, the company has been holding facility tours and open house events to help designers understand more about the fabrication process. Now, Bay Area Circuits has upgraded its free design tool, InstantDFM.com, which allows customers and non-customers alike to check manufacturability and request pricing of their jobs. At PCB West, Andy Shaughnessy spoke with President Stephen Garcia and COO Brian Paper about the new tool update, and some of the other services they offer for PCB designers.

Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.
