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.

‘The Trouble with Tribbles’

06/17/2021 | Dana Korf, Korf Consultancy
The original Star Trek series came into my life in 1966 as I was entering sixth grade. I was fascinated by the technology being used, such as communicators and phasers, and the crazy assortment of humans and aliens in each episode. My favorite episode is “The Trouble with Tribbles,” an episode combining cute Tribbles, science, and good/bad guys—sprinkled with sarcastic humor.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.
