Real Time with… AltiumLive 2020: Cross-Disciplinary Thinking With Eli Hughes



Eli Hughes, co-founder of TZero, discusses his AltiumLive presentation "Crossing the Chasm: The Road to Becoming a Full-Stack Hardware Engineer" with Andy Shaughnessy. Hughes explains the value of understanding multiple engineering disciplines, and he used his company's work with the beer fermentation process to highlight the need to avoid "staying in your lane" to succeed as an engineer.

Wild River ISI-56 Platform Accelerates SerDes Testing

02/02/2021 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently spoke with Al Neves, founder and CTO of Wild River Technology, about the release of their new ISI-56 loss modeling platform. Al explains why it was so critical that this tool meets the stringent requirements of the IEEE P370 specification (which he helped develop), and why he believes this is currently the best tool for SerDes testing and characterization.

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.
