Welcome to the May edition of the Altium OnTrack Newsletter!

AltiumLive 2018: ANNUAL PCB DESIGN SUMMIT is coming in October to sunny San Diego, California and pre-registration is now open! By pre-registering now, you will qualify for a 10% early-bird discount once registration officially opens in June (Stay tuned for more information about our European conference). Once again, we will be featuring powerhouse keynote speakers and loads of training. Here is a video recap of last year’s summit...and trust me you don’t want to miss all we are planning for you this year!!

In this edition of the OnTrack newsletter, you will learn from manufacturing pro Duane Benson of Screaming Circuits about important things to look for during the design process to make sure you get it right in PCB assembly.

In Next Gen Innovators, you will learn about the Formula SAE team at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

In the OnTrack video series, Ben Jordan goes to the white board again to talk about multi-board design. In Part 2 of this series he discusses connections and connectors.

Last but not least, we’ve got some healthy Brain Food and a bit of Regional News to top things off. Your feedback is always welcome at judy.warner@altium.com.

Enjoy and always...stay OnTrack!

Highlighting DFA Subject Matter Experts
Duane Benson was “bitten” by the electronics bug at a young age. He now works for Screaming Circuits, an uber quick-turn PCB assembly house in Canby, Oregon. With an on-demand transactional model, they seldom see the same board twice — leaving little margin for error or ambiguity. Take a few notes from Benson’s playbook below and see what things he finds important to get it right the first time.
