Welcome to the October 2017 issue of Altium’s On Track Newsletter. This month we celebrate a few unique engineers and designers from our global user community. The first is Omer Mahgoub from South Africa who is designing boards for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The SKA will be the world’s largest radio telescope ever built, spanning two continents and providing unprecedented views of space.
Next, you’ll read about a group of passionate engineering students at the University of Waterloo in Canada. This team is busy creating a passenger class solar car to compete on the world stage in 2018.
This month’s On Track video kicks off a 3-part series on Thermal Management with Chris Carlson.
Finally, we pass on some great content to read and share, and give you a list of upcoming electronics events.

Enjoy and always stay On Track!
