This year, the PCB Forums will explore the core Xpedition tools using step-by-step instruction for optimum adoption. In addition to instruction, our time will be focused on discussion and hands-on experience.

The PCB Forum is a full day of technical sessions conducted by Mentor Graphics application engineers, spanning the entire design flow, enabling users to learn tool capabilities more effectively, improving individual design skills, resulting in greater efficiency for design teams.

There will also be a specific session, addressing the quickest way to adopt the Xpedition VX.1 release.

Lunch, refreshments, and parking are complimentary at every location.
