A Great Recipe: Collaboration, Motivation, and Design Classes

07/17/2024 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
John Watson, CID, is a professor at Palomar College near San Diego. John teaches a basic PCB design class and an advanced class, and graduates from these classes are ready for their first PCB design job. These appear to be the only classes of their kind in the U.S., and as more designers retire, the demand for classes like this will continue to rise. I recently spoke with John and one of his students, Mehdi Kacem, a junior embedded systems engineer intern at Avempace in Tunisia. In this interview, Mehdi explains how his desire to collaborate and his motivation to succeed helped him get the most out of John’s courses.

It’s Only Common Sense: Thar She Blows! Going After That Illusive Whale

07/15/2024 | Dan Beaulieu -- Column: It's Only Common Sense
We’ve all been there. You are targeting a very large customer that could make your yearly forecast. In fact, this customer could blow those goals out of the water. You know you have what they need, and you are yearning to find a way to give it to them. But you’re just not getting anywhere. They won’t answer the phone or return your calls. Their lobby feels like a fortress, and even the receptionist seems icy cold and barely gives you the time of day. Yet you still have that feeling about this company. You were meant for each other. What the heck can you do?

The Shaughnessy Report: Mechatronics—Designers Need to Know It All

07/12/2024 | Andy Shaughnessy -- Column: The Shaughnessy Report
When I was growing up, the term “know it all” was considered an insult. But PCB designers and design engineers of the future will need to know almost everything about the board, the system, and the final product. Tomorrow’s designers will need to have a solid understanding of not just electronic design, but mechanical design and software development as well. This is where mechatronics comes in.

SEMICON WEST 2024 Kicks Off in San Francisco

07/11/2024 | Marcy LaRont, PCB007 Magazine
Unsurprisingly, it is overcast as I drive into San Francisco to the Moscone Center for SEMICON 2024. The doors did not open until 7:30 am, which left a few of us loitering outside anticipating what we’d find on the other side of the doors. I am one of those strange individuals who kind of loves trade shows and conferences. I have always had a curious mind and thirst for knowledge, so continuing my education on cutting-edge technology and market trends fills me with energy. SEMICON and semiconductors are not our core industry, but everything that they do and work toward informs and trickles down into the reality of the printed circuit board supply chain.
