For our "Ask the Experts" issue, we asked our readers to send in their questions for our team of veteran PCB designers and design engineers. ere were no real rules here; ques- tions could be about any topic related to PCB design. Readers responded with a list of questions that ran the entire gamut, from DFM through signal integrity and much, much more. Most were technical design questions, but a few readers asked about issues such as the supply chain, the future of design education, and replacing those designers and engineers who are busily planning their retirement. We'd like to thank our experts for sharing their thoughts, insights, and opinions with the industry. We would also like to thank the designers and design engineers who sent in their questions. We depend on input from readers like you to help keep us on top of the topics and trends in PCB design. All the experts featured in this issue are listed here for easy reference. We hope you enjoy our "Ask the Experts" special feature. Designers are hungry for this knowledge, and we're happy that we could help them get the answers they need to do their jobs better.
