DesignCon Kicks Off Its 25th Anniversary Show

Reading time ( words)

DesignCon’s 25th anniversary show got underway yesterday, and the I-Connect007 Editorial Team was there, meeting with some of the industry’s top electronics engineers, technologists and managers.

The trade show and conference that is literally “by engineers, for engineers” rang in its silver anniversary with a busy show floor and a variety of keynotes, panels and sessions. Most of the attendees and exhibitors we’ve met with say that their companies are still expanding, and many are still in hiring mode. If anyone in this segment is looking for a job, even for a lateral move, this is a great time for you.

The first day closed with a champagne toast to the show’s first 25 years.

Enjoy the slide show below from the first day of DesignCon 2020.

I spoke with Joe about his upcoming keynote at AltiumLive in San Diego, “When Hacking and Engineering Collide,” which will focus on the lighter side of engineering and the benefits of thinking like a hacker. Can Joe convince PCB designers to adopt a hacker’s outlook?

Albert Gaines: Design All Comes Down to Documentation

06/28/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During SMTA Atlanta, I spoke with Albert Gaines of HiGain Design. We discussed Albert’s belief that everything starts with design and that too many engineers and designers focus solely on the final board at the expense of the documentation, which is a designer’s most important product. Do you consider your documentation to be a critical product?
