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.

Embedded Inductors with Laser Machined Gap

12/12/2018 | Jim Quilici, Radial Electronics
The power magnetics are often the largest and most expensive devices in the circuit. Integrating them into either a power converter module or system board can significantly reduce size and cost of the power converter function. This work presents the fabrication of embedded inductors and the experimental laser machining of gaps in the underlying ferrite structure.

Design Data: File Naming Conventions

12/03/2018 | Kelly Dack, CID+, EPTAC
Working for an EMS provider, I am often asked to make sense of customers’ PCB design data packages that must be audited for completeness and manufacturability. Quite often, EMS operations receive data to produce a PCB design and begin the auditing process, only to be called off due to customer changes. Sometimes the data is incomplete, or it is missing one or more of the data files required to fabricate the PCB at the supplier. There are also occasions where a customer has sent files that were supposed to be the updated version but were not changed at all.
