It was a fun little interview, with some questions that were a bit more thought provoking than I had expected at first blush.
I’d like to amend my answer to the following question:
“Do you have any words of wisdom for EEs, or those wishing to pursue a career in our industry?”
To which, I replied:
‘Measure twice, cut once’ -> Check, double check, and triple check your schematics before layout and production.
I’d like to re-visit that statement and append a quadruple check as well!
Remember, in the hardware world, board revisions happen on the order of weeks, not hours. So, skipping a day of schematic review can easily translate into 2 (or more) lost weeks of schedule.
