Hello everyone!

     I hope everyone is well.  I also hope everyone is enjoying the course!  It's been a busy week -- so I'll keep this short!

This week in our webinar series, we have "Design Tips and Cost Saving Tricks with the Gracia Brothers"  It should have a little bit of something for everyone -- so please sign up here if you are interested!  The next two weeks we will hopefully see Chris Hunrath from Insulectro return with a two-part webinar on flexible PCB material selection.  I'm still hammering out webinars for the end of May, but June 4th will be Bob Hausherr of with information about IPC-7351 and his latest software release (Bob's software can build your part library from manufacturer part numbers).

Week 4 content will become available on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. Pacific time.
