The Dear Abby of SI

Eric Bogatin is hanging out a virtual shingle at The specialist in signal integrity training is taking your questions and posting answers at the bottom of his new monthly column on the Altera Web site. Eric will also use the Q&As in future versions of his columns for Printed Circuit Design and Manufacture Magazine. Those columns are now nicely indexed on his own Web site.
