Welcome to the June edition of the Altium OnTrack newsletter!
In this edition, you will be both impressed and inspired by some very young innovators who are profoundly changing people’s lives by designing and building medical assistive devices. In Design Like a Girl, you will meet Mary Elizabeth McCulloch and learn about her speech-generation device startup, Project Vive. In Makerspace, you’ll read about Dutch students at Delft Technical University and Project March who are making exoskeletons that help paraplegics not only walk but compete in Cybathlon events.
In the OnTrack video series, David Marrakchi discusses design for assembly best practices. As usual, you’ll find lots of stimulating Brain Food and a bit of Regional News to keep you up to date.
The OnTrack Podcast continues to grow rapidly and features outstanding guests every week, so please listen in, subscribe, and comment.
Finally, AltiumLive 2018: Annual PCB Design Summit registration is officially open! Please join us for a jam-packed two or three days of teaching, training, resources, and networking. Space is limited so register early.
