Tamara Jovanovic Discusses Lessons Learned at AltiumLive

January 20, 2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine

Shortly after graduating three years ago, design engineer Tamara Jovanovic attended her first AltiumLive in San Diego and discovered the global community of PCB designers. With a few years of experience designing PCBs for smart baby beds with Happiest Baby, Tamara is now working on her master's degree. In this interview, Tamara explains why she plans to attend AltiumLive again this year, and she discusses what it's like attending class as an experienced technologist.

Connect the Dots: Everything You Wanted to Know About Electromagnetic Interference

January 20, 2022 | Matt Stevenson, Sunstone Circuits

EMI is another of those TLAs (three letter acronym) that the PCB industry is notorious for. You hear it all the time, referring to electromagnetic interference. The devices we create are, in the context of this conversation, bundles of boards, chips, and cables that produce and are affected by EMI. When current flows through wires, traces, or circuits, some of the energy is propagated through the air in the form of electromagnetic radiation. This also takes place within a closed design—creating disturbance voltages throughout the conductors in your device.
