UP Media Group Inc. announced more than 40 technical sessions have been selected for PCB West Virtual 2020 this fall. The conference, which is moving to an online platform because of the novel coronavirus, takes place September 7-10.
This year’s conference features a pair of extended talks from Lee Ritchey on power delivery system design and stackup design, two talks from Dr. Eric Bogatin, and three full days of classes from Rick Hartley. The conference covers everything from RF/microwave and mixed-signal design, circuit grounding, understanding material choices, flex circuits, signal and power integrity, to fabrication and assembly processes. Talks are aimed at the spectrum of backgrounds, from novice to advanced.
“Like most conferences, we are putting the safety of our speakers and registrants ahead of any other priority. That said, we are elated to bring the best of the industry together for this unique technical conference,” said Mike Buetow, PCB West conference director and editorial director, UPMG. “Even those with severe travel restrictions will be able to participate in this year’s show. We will have more than 125 hours of training available – and the best part is, since it’s all on-demand, attendees won’t have to pick and choose which presentations to see.”
“As an added bonus, some of the speakers will be available for live question/answer sessions following their presentations,” Buetow added.
New presentations will be made available throughout the week and will be available on-demand for 30 days. Attendees will also receive certificates indicating the number of hours of training received at PCB West.
PCB West annually provides a conference and exhibition focused on the design and manufacture of PCBs, HDI, electronics assembly and circuit board test. The event annually attracts nearly 2,000 attendees.
