Practical Engineering on a Budget | Dr. Eric Bogatin’s Low Cost Tools & Solutions at DesignCon 2024

In this episode, Dr. Eric Bogatin talks about his upcoming activities at DesignCon 2024. He discusses the demonstration he’ll make in the Chiphead Theater, measuring the bandwidth of scope probes. For the first time, his students from CU Boulder High-Speed Digital Engineering Group will have a booth and focus on how low-cost tools and solutions can be used for professional engineers while showing the importance of practical engineering judgment regardless of the tools used.

Also discussed is how engineers can find high-quality curated technical content and how to continually learn and grow–one of which is Signal Integrity Journal where Eric is the Technical Editor.
