116 Using this Book as a Resource Ultimately, we wanted this book to be another resource in your toolbox. At the end of each chapter is a checklist highlighting the key points from each chapter. You can print these and use them as quick guides to reference as you work. However you choose to utilize the information within this guide, we are confident the information included will help you to be successful while on your PCB design journey. So Long and Thanks for all the Fish No matter how you cut it, technology and automation are a requirement today. However, since the tools don't have the capability to understand what's in your head (yet) it is up to you, the PCB design engineer, to define this. While it is important to embrace technology and automation, it is essential to understand your design parameters to move forward. This guide will help you do this. As the role of the designer evolves into the hub of the entire design and manufacturing process for the PCBA, it is the hope of all those who contributed to this guide, that its message and content will serve as a valuable resource. Ultimately, everything boils down to having an open mind, so you can quickly adapt as technology changes and learn how to apply lessons from the past. Failure to do so could not only prevent you from completing your design successfully, but it can also keep you from reaching your full potential. Simply put, all you need to be successful in this quickly-evolving industry are this guide, a towel, and an open mind.
