AltiumLive 2017 Germany was a great success. The event, which hosted more than 300 designers and delegates at the Westin Grand Munich, was completely sold out.
Held on October 24–25, 2017, the summit featured presentations from experts in the PCB design industry, including Lee Ritchey of Speeding Edge, Simon Payne of Cambridge Technology Group/XJTAG, Thomas Wischnack of Porsche Engineering Services, and Andreas Doering of IBM Research Laboratory.
AltiumLive 2017 Germany was the second summit for Altium this year. The first was held in San Diego, California, USA on October 3–4.

The I-Connect007 Team
When we began planning the October issue on signal integrity, we arranged a conference call with a variety of industry experts. Mike Steinberger of SiSoft, Mark Thompson of Prototron Circuits, and Yogen and Sunny Patel of Candor Industries joined editors Andy Shaughnessy, Patty Goldman, Happy Holden and Publisher Barry Matties on the call for a spirited discussion about the challenges related to signal integrity and some of the tricks of the trade for helping ensure SI.

Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.

Pete Starkey continues with his review of the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit held recently in Munich, Germany. The second day commenced with a new product launch. “Working together is hard” it read on the screen. Statistics indicated that 33% of new products were late getting to market, of which 28% were late due to insufficient collaboration, and up to 50% of potential revenue could be lost through being late to market. Then the screen read “NEXUS makes it easy!”
