Altium to Host PCB Industry's Premier Virtual Event


Reading time ( words)

AltiumLive, Altium’s annual flagship printed circuit board (PCB) design conference, is transitioning from a live, three-day event into a virtual summit. The free event is open to all, and meticulously curated to preserve the quality and content the electronic design community has come to expect.

“We’re very excited to deliver our unique AltiumLive experience for the first time ever in a virtual format. As always, we will provide a dynamic approach to learn, network and collaborate - but this time, from the convenience of either your home or workplace,” said Ted Pawela, Altium’s COO. “By making our conference both virtual and free of charge, it will remove the limitations of time, travel, workload, and budget, enabling many more members of the design community to attend.”

Now in its fourth year, AltiumLive coalesces the electronic design community’s best and brightest, featuring luminary keynote speakers, panels and ample opportunity for attendees to network with their peers from all over the world.

This year’s event also features some of the biggest speakers yet, including David Pellarin of Amazon Web Services and Picotest’s Steve Sandler, as well as major fan favorites like Teledyne LeCroy’s Dr. Eric Bogatin, Jeremy Blum, founder of Shaper Tools, and Rick Hartley, president of RH Enterprises.

The three-day event will also include exclusive sessions that can be viewed on-demand, live Q&A sessions, interactive electronics education and networking, daily happy hours, virtual tours of manufacturing facilities and more.

With half-day live events plus optional sessions and activities, attendees will be able to customize their AltiumLive experience, while balancing work-from-home needs.

AltiumLive will be held across six days in October to best accommodate North American and European audiences. The North American dates are October 6-8, 2020; the European dates are October 20-22, 2020.

What Happens When You Assume?

07/05/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
What is design with manufacturing and what does true DWM look like in operation? In this interview, I-Connect007 columnist Dana Korf explains what it will take to achieve total communication among all the stakeholders in the PCB development cycle. He also stresses the need for everyone involved in PCB design and manufacturing to stop making assumptions, even at the risk of being labeled as “that guy” who asks too many questions.

Master the Art of Communication With Manufacturers

06/30/2022 | Kyle Burk, KBJ Engineering
As mentioned in the May issue of Design007 Magazine, design is performed, at times, in a vacuum. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Whenever circumstances allow, design should be performed by communicating with all stakeholders throughout the design process, hence the emphasis on the word with in DWM. Communication can occur through personal correspondence such as email and voice conversations or through more formal design meetings—in person or through videoconferencing. No matter which means of communication you prefer, it’s important to communicate early and often with stakeholders involved in the downstream processes as you bring your project to realization.

Altimade Puts Designers and Manufacturers Together

06/24/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Despite all of the talk about the need for communication between designers and manufacturers, many PCB designers still do not talk with their manufacturers for a variety of reasons. Altium and MacroFab aim to change this dynamic. In this interview, Ted Pawela, chief ecosystem officer of Altium and head of Altium’s Nexar Business Unit, and MacroFab CEO Misha Govshteyn, discuss the new Altimade manufacturing service that Altium is introducing in partnership with MacroFab. Ted and Misha provide an overview of the Altimade process, how it links designers to fabricators, assembly providers, and component distributors, and they explain how it could pave the way for true design with manufacturing, or DWM.
