AltiumLive 2018 a Mecca for PCB Designers


Reading time ( words)

AltiumLive 2018 San Diego is now in the history books. This is the second annual AltiumLive (North America), and it was even better than the first. With nearly 300 hundred participants, from all parts of the country and industry, the event was a huge success.

The event took place in San Diego, California at the Lowes Coronado Bay Resort. Located right on the water, the venue was perfect. The attendees were provided excellent meals throughout the entire event and the views were spectacular.

The Navy even flew a few WWII-era airplanes past during dinner one night.

APCT Moves into Rigid-Flex with Cartel, Cirtech Acquisition

06/18/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy
When I spoke with APCT President Steve Robinson a year ago, he said he was interested in adding flex and rigid-flex capabilities, and working closely with designers and engineers. With the recent acquisition of Cartel and their subsidiary Cirtech, APCT now has a flex and rigidflex facility, along with military and aerospace certifications. At DesignCon 2018, I asked Steve to discuss these acquisitions and what they mean for APCT and their customers.

Sensible Design: Thermal Management—The Heat is On

09/25/2017 | Jade Bridges, Electrolube
Thermal management materials are designed to prolong equipment life and reduce incidences of failure. They also maintain equipment performance parameters and reduce energy consumption by reducing operating temperatures, and minimising the risk of damage to surrounding components. Indirectly, they maintain brand reputation, as the reliability of the equipment will be very dependent upon the effectiveness of the thermal management technique used.

Must Work Well on a Team; CID a Bonus

06/07/2017 | Kelly Dack, CID+
Throughout my decades-long career in PCB design, I have been fortunate. I’ve only had to search for a job out of desperation once. I had no idea my IPC Certified Interconnect Designer credentials would come in handy when I hit the pavement. It also helped that I am known to "work well on a team." It turns out that being able to play well with others is a real plus in the PCB design community.
