Welcome to the July edition of the Altium OnTrack Newsletter!

In Rock Stars and Superheroes, we talk with veteran PCB Designer Bill Brooks, who has been designing boards since 1969.

In Next Gen Designers, we introduce you to the WARR Hyperloop team from the Technical University of Munich, who won the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition II in 2017, and broke the world record as well!

In the OnTrack video series, Ben Jordan teaches part three of his multi-board series, this time focusing on signal and power integrity issues.

Lastly, we have fresh Brain Food.

Enjoy and always...stay OnTrack!
