10 The PCB Design Magazine • February 2014
the movers and shakers of PCB design and de-
sign engineering. Our guest editors, PCB de-
signer Kelly Dack and DuPont engineer Glenn
Oliver, performed above and beyond the call of
duty, as usual.
Often, I'd ask Kelly or Glenn out of the blue,
"Can you interview this guy for me?" If they
were available, they'd do it. Thanks a lot, guys.

Overall, it's hard to ignore the fact that
DesignCon is becoming more of a PCB show
every year. It wasn't too long ago that this was
primarily an IC conference and show. But now,
the expo aisles are dotted with booths manned
by manufacturers such as Sanmina, Prototron,
Sierra Circuits, TTM Technologies, and All Flex,
not to mention materials companies like Rog
ers, Isola, Park and DuPont. And the conference
features papers and sessions on signal integrity,
EMC, and other PCB mainstays. It deﬁnitely
helps the PCB design community.
