AltiumLive 2018 a Mecca for PCB Designers


Reading time ( words)

altium-DSC00951.jpgAfter the classes on the first day wrapped up, Altium held a Happy (Holden) Happy hour. This special event took place on the outdoor patio where Happy Holden held a book signing of his HDI Handbook and introduced his latest book on automation, Automation and Advanced Procedures in PCB Fabrication.

The second day began with an overview of the new Altium 365 tool. This tool will give designers the ability to easily collaborate with their team in real time. The tool also has a companion app that provides a mobile experience, so designers can enjoy instant access to their projects anywhere in the world. A key driver behind Altium 365 is convenience, an important attribute that the Altium team strives for in each tool update. They want their user experience to be as convenient as possible.

The second day was also filled with great keynote speakers who inspired the group with their ideas and accomplishments. Between the keynotes, the attendees enjoyed their breaks with refreshments and visits to the tabletop exhibits of the event sponsors.

The sponsors’ tabletops displays included exhibits from PCB design services and fabrication providers, OEMs, and of course the I-Connect007 tabletop. There was also a special Altium user experiences room that allowed attendees to meet the Altium team and have a hands-on look at the suite of offerings provided by Altium.

Once day two’s educational tracks came to a close, a cocktail party began on the beautiful patio and tabletop exhibit area.

TUM Hyperloop Team Learns PCB Design on Way to Setting World Speed Record

02/14/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At AltiumLive Munich, I met with Tobias Bobrzik, a Technical University of Munich student and member of the TUM Hyperloop team. In 2018, the TUM Hyperloop team’s prototype pod set the world speed record of 290 miles per hour, which lead to their meeting with Musk. Tobias designed some of the PCBs used in that vehicle, so I asked him to tell us more about this experience, and what he hopes to do after graduation.

AltiumLive Munich: Day 1 Keynotes

01/28/2019 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The weather forecast was wrong! Despite my apprehension and winter clothes, there was very little snow at the Hilton Munich Airport. It could have been any season of the year inside the splendid convention facility, which was also the venue for the second European AltiumLive design summit. AltiumLive brought together a family of over 220 electronics engineers and designers eager to learn from top industry experts and applications specialists who were equally eager to share their knowledge and experience freely.

AltiumLive Munich Draws Designers from Around Europe

01/24/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I’m finally unpacked after last week’s AltiumLive PCB design summit in Munich. Much like the AltiumLive event I attended in San Diego last October, the conference drew hundreds of PCB designers. This marked the second AltiumLive PCB design summit held in Munich, and Altium seems to have it down to a science. I spoke with designers from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and Belgium, just to name a few countries. Many of them were involved in the automotive segment but some were in medical and industrial controls as well. It’s great to be at an event that is full of PCB designers, because designers are few and far between at most PCB industry events.
