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.

This week, Altium Designer 19 will be officially launched to the public during AltiumLive, which takes place October 3-5 in San Diego. I asked Altium COO Ted Pawela to give us a preview of Altium Designer 19, and to explain how AD19 fits in with the company’s long-term plans. He also discusses Altium Live’s plan to provide PCB design content that is not vendor-specific to help support the entire industry, not just customers.

John R. Watson Returns to AltiumLive in San Diego

10/03/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
When AltiumLive launched last year, John R. Watson, CID, of Legrand signed up as an instructor. He’ll be presenting at this week’s AltiumLive in San Diego as well. I spoke with John recently about his AltiumLive class, and the state of PCB design. He also discussed a few tricks for designing boards with components that are currently on an 80-week lead time, and why this problem is likely to get worse before it gets better.

Institute of Circuit Technology Hayling Island Seminar

10/10/2018 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
After an extreme summer heat wave had left trees dehydrated and struggling to morph into their customary display of reds and golds, the leaves were brown and brittle as the great and good of the UK printed circuit board industry crossed the bridge from the mainland of the south coast of England to Hayling Island for the autumn seminar of the Institute of Circuit Technology on September 20, 2018.
