  • What customers say about our articles:
  • I did a video board with DDR2 memory a while ago on Altium. Thank you for your routing tips for DDR2, which I got off the internet. They helped a lot and the board now works like a dream. I will continue to follow your articles in the PCB magazine. It is people like yourself that make life so much easier for the rest of us. Thanks once again for your insightful articles in The PCB Design Magazine.

  • Steve Knobel, Senior CAD Designer, CID+, Advanced Technologies & Engineering
  • 'Just a quick note to let you know we really like this program you guys made. It's doing a great job for us.'

  • Michael Ingham - Spectrum Integrity Inc
  • 'The iCD Stackup Planner has proven very useful especially for highlighting the affects of builds and other amendments on the calculated impedance to the customers. It is both flexible and concise with only a very short learning curve required to use confidently.'
