Weekly Digest: Articles, Podcast and Videos from Altium
We’ve collected everything published this week to bring our readers resources to read, watch and listen to all in one place. On the Podcast we introduced a new format so we can invite engineer Ben Jordan on the show more often to take questions from the audience. We also have new articles on the blog and several new videos all about Altium 365.
This OnTrack Podcast with Judy Warner
This week on the OnTrack Podcast, Judy Warner and Ben Jordan pulled a question from the Altiumlive forum and discussed management in context for small businesses and independent contractors. Take a listen and let us know what questions you have. We want to make sure we cover information PCB designers can use, on the job, today - so write in and let us know what burning questions you have about PCB design and fabrication. You can submit your questions on the AltiumLive forum, and sign up to be part of the community. Or email your questions directly to us.
You can also listen to the podcast on all your favorite podcast apps including Podbean, iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, TuneIn, Youtube, PlayerFM and if you can’t find us, let us know!

Try Altium Designer, Because...
We know that if you’re designing a high speed, high frequency or mixed signal board, you’ll need to pay careful attention to the impedance of your traces while routing. Impedance mismatch between sources and loads can lead to signal problems that compromise data integrity and lead to noise in your board. Who wants to work out the impedance of every trace configuration by hand? Instead of using paper and pencil, you can take advantage of the rules-driven environment in Altium Designer to ensure your traces are routed with the right impedance.
