EIPC Chairman Alun Morgan will deliver a keynote speech at this week’s AltiumLive event in Munich, Germany. He gave us a quick preview of his keynote, and explained what his new job entails as technology ambassador with Ventec International Group.

Andy Shaughnessy: Alun, you’re one of the keynote speakers at AltiumLive in Munich this week. In your talk, you focus on what PCB designers need to know about materials and their properties. Can you give us a preview of your keynote?

Alun Morgan: Yes, I plan to let designers know a little more about the base materials used in their designs and the critical properties of the base materials that impact performance to help them better specify and choose appropriate materials for their needs.

Shaughnessy: Tell us about your new position at Ventec. Technology ambassador sounds like a good fit for you.

Morgan: Ventec is an organization whose reputation and global recognition is built upon its innovative culture, something that fits very well with me. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to help promote and develop Ventec’s position as a leading provider of electronic materials solutions across many technology sectors.

Shaughnessy: Why should PCB designers attend AltiumLive?

Morgan: AltiumLive offers a unique opportunity for PCB designers to gain access to a wealth of knowledge and information to enhance their skills.

Shaughnessy: Thanks, Alun. Congratulations on your new position.
