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.

At PCB West, Zuken shared a booth with Nano Dimension. Zuken has been working with Nano Dimension for some time, and adding support for 3D printing and nanotechnology to its design tool platforms. I sat down with Zuken’s Humair Mandavia and Nano Dimension’s Simon Fried to learn more about this alliance, and to find out more about this odd-looking box being demonstrated in Zuken’s booth.

European Editor Pete Starkey and Ucamco Managing Director Karel Tavernier discuss Ucamco’s cloud-based Communic8tor platform which facilitates two-way communication between the CAM engineer and the PCB designer, or any other party involved in the manufacturing process. This gives real-time access to image data and annotations, enabling queries to be resolved, changes to be approved, and a full communications history to be maintained.

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.
