Why You Should Stop Hanging on to Legacy Design Rules

He’s back! Signal integrity expert Eric Bogatin returns to the OnTrack podcast to give us a preview of his upcoming AltiumLive 2020 panels, discuss his ongoing quest to impart best design practices to the next generation of engineers, and teach us all how to avoid problematic ‘legacy design rules’ that no longer apply to today’s technology.

Dr. Bogatin is Signal Integrity Evangelist at Teledyne LeCroy, and adjunct professor and lecturer at University of Colorado Boulder. You can also find his Webinars at Be the Signal.
