I've had the opportunity to interview several exceptional professionals in PCB Design this past year, which includes interviewing this popular group of engineers. Here are the most popular articles in our Professional PCB Designers series:

In the number three spot is a beloved professional designer, BSEE, and a CID Master Instructor who also has a passion for golfing...Cherie Litson. Congratulations Cherie and thank you for contributing so much to the industry and to the success of the OnTrack newsletter!


Cherie Litson, Litson1 Consulting, Eptac Trainer

In the number two spot is yet another woman (watch out guys!) who is a rising star and next gen designer (whose dad is a CID master instructor)...Nicole Pacino. Way to go Nicole, and thanks for showing all of us what it means to Design Like a Girl!

He had so much great information to share in our interview that it spilled into two parts. Of course, I am talking about the one and only Rick Hartley! Here is Part One and Part Two of our conversation.
