Reading time ( words)

Throughout 2020, we asked you to send us your questions for Happy Holden, John Mitchell, Joe Fjelstad, Tara Dunn, and Heidi Barnes. You all had plenty of questions for these industry experts.

These five luminaries have seen it all. Happy, also known as "Mr. HDI," pioneered many of today's PCB design and fabrication processes while working at Hewlett-Packard. John Mitchell is president and CEO of IPC, and he co-founded the Alpine Electronics research company that introduced navigation systems into the U.S. Joe Fjelstad founded Silicon Pipe and Verdant Electronics, and he has over 185 patents issued or pending related to electronic interconnect and packaging technologies. Tara Dunn is the VP of marketing and business development for Averatek and founder of Omni PCB, and she specializes in additive processes, flex and rigid-flex, and RF/microwave applications. And Heidi Barnes is a signal integrity engineer with Keysight Technologies. She was named 2017 DesignCon Engineer of the Year, and Heidi also won NASA's coveted Silver Snoopy Award.

Last year’s IPC APEX EXPO, which took place in sunny San Diego, seems to have taken place in a different world.
