Eric Bogatin received his B.S. in physics from MIT in 1976 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in physics from the University of Arizona in Tucson in 1980. For more than thirty years he has been active in the fields of signal integrity and interconnect design. He worked in senior engineering and management roles at AT&T Bell Labs, Raychem Corp., Sun Microsystems, and Interconnect Devices Inc.Recognizing a need in the industry for quality technical training in signal integrity, he created Bogatin Enterprises, which has grown to be a world-leading provider of signal integrity training services. As a "Signal Integrity Evangelist," Eric turns complexity into practical design principles, leveraging commercially available analysis techniques and measurement tools.Over the years, he has created a number of live classes and presented to more than five thousand engineers, worldwide. These include topics on transmission lines, differential pairs, switching noise, ground bounce, the power distribution network, and EMI. Some courses cover the use of TDR and VNA measurement techniques to characterize interconnects.In addition, Eric is a prolific author with more than three hundred publications, many posted on his web site, www.beTheSignal.com, for free download. He regularly presents at DesignCon, PCB West, Mentor User Group Meetings, and the IPC's Designer Day annual event.In the past ten years, he has written regular monthly columns for Printed Circuit Design and Fabrication magazine, Semiconductor International, Electronic Packaging and Production, Altera Corporation, and Mentor Graphics Corporation. He is on the editorial board of Printed Circuit Design and Fabrication magazine and Microinterconnects Newsletter.
