Weekly Digest: Electronic Product Design
Get inspired by this week’s podcast that takes us to Michigan Tech to see how students are getting hands-on to prepare for high-tech jobs of the future. This week we also have new industry expert articles covering everything from the history vs. the myth of ferrite beads, the level of tolerance acceptable in your products, design data management as the multi-faceted and never-ending exploration that it is. Explore these topics and more shaping PCB design and find answers from experts you trust.
Bonus: see what Evaluation Engineering published this week by Lawrence Romine, and learn a little more about the evolution of electronic product design.

The OnTrack Podcast with Judy Warner
This week we had our first OnTrack Field Trip to Michigan Tech University where we learned how several lab spaces enable students to get hands-on with chemical and wet processes as well as prototyping and research, board etching and development as students work in small groups across campus at MTU. The resurgence in manufacturing across all sectors of electronic product design is calling for students to be fully equipped with the necessary skill sets to drive the next generation of technology.
