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.

TTM’s Approach to Stackup Design: Train the Customer

01/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team, TTM’s Julie Ellis and Richard Dang drill down into stackup design, detailing some of the common stackup challenges that their customers face when designing for both prototype and volume levels, and offering advice to designers or engineers who are struggling with stackup issues. They also discuss why having too many different prepregs in a stackup can be asking for trouble, and how proper stackup design can optimize both the fabrication and assembly processes.

Cutting Respins: Journey to the Single-spin PCB

01/07/2021 | Chris Young, The Goebel Company
PCB design is more than a short sprint to the finish line; it is a journey best suited for the prepared adventurer. According to a study by Lifecycle Insights, the average PCB design project requires 2.9 respins. These respins can cost anywhere from tens of thousands to millions of dollars—each! As an engineer/business owner, I find respins frustrating because I would rather spend my time and money applying scientific principles inventing, improving technology, and solving problems. I am not an advocate for perfectionism, but rather I focus on becoming a better adventurer. Sometimes I get to taste the sweet wine that is a single spin PCB. As fellow adventurers, let’s discuss some topics that influence unnecessary return trips on our PCB design journey: simulation, technical reviews, and interest in PCB design.
