I was at PCB West last week on Sept. 15th. It was taking place at the Santa Clara Marriott in their large ballroom. I came in the mid-afternoon so I could take photos for a photo gallery, and to some video interviews for PCB and EDAC Cafe clients. I had the sense the show was more subdued than previous years but Show management really worked to make it easy for folks to attend, get a free lunch and see some open sessions. Kudos to Alyson over at Up Media Group for putting an excellent event.
You can see the photo gallery of the show floor at PCB West 2009 Pictures.
The video interviews were with DownStream, EMA Design Automation, Prototron Circuits, Oak-Mitsui and with Valor. The world of PCB design continues to evolve as it meets the challenges of ever-higher signal frequencies, the need for more efficient and automated methods to create designs, and to improve collaboration.
All of these topics and more are covered in the PCB West 2009 Video Interviews.
Let me know your thoughts about PCBWest and the interviews.
