66 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I FEBRUARY 2019 1 CES 2019 Showstoppers, the Show Floor, and Some Neat Stuff E CES 2019 is over, and those of us who spent four to five days try- ing to see and hear as much as possible are in recovery mode. There were over 182,000 attendees, and 6,600 of us were media all trying to get to as much of the 2.9-million- square-feet exhibit space as possible. 2 AltiumLive Munich: Day 1 Keynotes E AltiumLive brought together a family of over 220 electron- ics engineers and design- ers eager to learn from top industry experts and appli- cations specialists who were equally eager to share their knowledge and experience freely. 3 AltiumLive Munich Draws Designers from Around Europe E Andy Shaughnessy spoke with designers from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and Bel- gium, just to name a few countries. Many of them were involved in the automotive segment but some were in medical and industrial con- trols as well. It's great to be at an event that is full of PCB designers, because designers are few and far between at most PCB industry events. 4 Happy Anniversary, Gerber Format: Looking Ahead to Digital Innovation E We can thank H. Joseph Gerber, the man who took manual PCB design to the next level with the auto- mated photoplotter, for giving us this format in 1964. Gerber started Ger- ber Scientific Instrument Company in 1948 to commercialize his first patented invention—the variable scale. Editor Picks from PCBDesign007
