This week Chris and Dave record earlier than normal for a special occasion. Also they discuss battery charging, solderpaste application, firmware tutoring, SBIR grants, out of print textbooks, and much more!
Chris talks with an ailing Dave about how to specify battery packs, why electronics engineers should stay out of mechanical design and improving design by thinking about manufacturing early in the design cycle.
Steve Kreuzer is a mechanical engineer who consults on projects involving everything from Lithium Ion batteries to BGAs to human heart cells. He talks to Chris about their shared past and how he does consulting for Exponent.
