Altium LLC has announced the AltiumLive 2019: Annual PCB Design Summit in San Diego, California from October 9-11. AltiumLive 2019 brings together several hundred designers, engineers, supply chain professionals, makers, students, and industry leaders in one location where they can expand their knowledge, connect with fellow professionals, and get inspired by the innovators that are altering the landscape of our world. 

“We designed AltiumLive, the industry’s only conference dedicated exclusively to PCB design, with the sole purpose of building a community of electronics professionals. Now in its third year, the conference has more than tripled in size and our community continues to grow,” said Lawrence Romine, vice president of global marketing at Altium. “This year, AltiumLive’s line-up of speakers and events has expanded to align with Altium’s vision of transforming the electronics industry, which is at the core of all the new technology applications that are changing our lives, from inside the doctor’s office to the far reaches of space.”

AltiumLive brings together a diverse group of industry experts and innovators covering a wide breadth of topics that expand beyond PCB design. Key participants of the event include hacker and co-host of “Prototype This” Joe Grand (“Kingpin”), Signal Integrity Evangelist Eric Bogatin, FEDEVEL Academy founder Robert Feranec, “Wizard of Make” Bob Martin, and more. The conference will also feature professional development courses taught by industry experts and Altium staff, along with technical presentations from Altium users and supply chain professionals. 

Like last year, the AltiumLive three-day summit will include an optional University Day, offering 12 Altium Designer-centric educational tracks on PCB design best practices, plus two parallel full-day courses covering EMI and DFM. Rick Hartley, Principal Engineer at RHartley Enterprises will host the EMI track, while Gary Ferrari, President of Ferrari Technical Services, Inc. will host the DFM track. 

Bil Herd, MCG LLC CEO and designer of the Commodore 128 said of AltiumLive 2018, “It wasn't just about Altium. AltiumLive is about how things work, and that's what you get here, from the university day and all of the other events to the speakers and the entire community."

The AltiumLive 2019: Annual PCB Design Summit will take place October 9-11 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego, California. To register for the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit, please visit https://www.altium.com/live-conference/san-diego.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

04/08/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Spring has definitely sprung, and the trade show season continues to roll right along. Managing Editor Nolan Johnson just returned from DesignCon 2022, and as he says in his review, the attendance was up from last year’s event, which had been at the McEnery Convention Center in the waning days of the pandemic. I hope we’re getting back to normal, whatever that means. This week, we have a few articles about Industry 4.0, as well as a column on setting your priorities. We have a cool article about methods for measuring the breakdown of resins during multiple thermal laminations, and a conversation with an EMS company president who realized that he was actually running a data collection firm that happened to make circuit boards. Can you say the same about your own company?

DesignCon 2022: Back to Business as Usual

It was something of a homecoming as DesignCon returned to the Santa Clara Convention Center this week for DesignCon 2022. It’s been two years since the last DesignCon was held in this venue just before the pandemic began. I attended DesignCon 2021 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in July of last year, and I could see a big improvement in attendance as DesignCon moved back into its usual venue.

Setting Goals for Your PCB Design Education

03/30/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
For our March issue of Design007 Magazine on planning your design education, we spoke with Bill Brooks of Nordson ASYMTEK, a long-time PCB designer, CID instructor, and fantastic sculptor. He is also one of the first to ever teach standalone PCB design courses in a college. After he earned his certification to teach the IPC CID workshops, Bill served as an adjunct instructor at Palomar College near San Diego, teaching beginning and advanced PCB design classes for 10 years. I asked Bill to share his thoughts on setting up a PCB design education career plan, and the need to stay on top of your game as a PCB designer.
