Meet John Watson, CID, one of our newest I-Connect007 columnists! John’s columns will cover a variety of tips that designers need to know.

John Watson has been in the electronics industry for 40 years, with 20 of them being in PCB design. His career started in the U.S. Army in the early ‘80s, where he worked as an electronics technician on top-secret military systems. In the early ‘90s, the electronics industry changed how repairs were done, going from a component level to board level. With that, John re-invented himself, moving into the PCB design field.

Now, John is the senior PCB engineer for Legrand Corporation, where he leads 60 designers who are spread across the United States and Asia. John’s career also includes being a consultant to some of the top electronics companies in the world, emphasizing the PCB design process and data management. In addition, he is a highly sought-out writer, mentor, and speaker.

Hard to believe that a year ago, I was getting ready to attend DesignCon and IPC APEX EXPO and wondering if this Novel Coronavirus was going to cut into attendance from the Pacific Rim. Now, we’re accustomed to virtual trade shows. They’re not ideal, but they’re the best we can do while meeting in person is not possible. We’ve learned to adapt.
