Has DesignNews ever thought about about varying the schedule for these broadcasts from time to time? There have been a lot of interesting topics out there, but they are always at the same time. For me, it would be easier to participate over lunch or even in the evening. I know you have to watch the scheduling for your entire audience as well as the technical professionals who will be involved, but it might be helpful to change the schedule from time to time.
Sounds like a solid agenda, particularly the best practice part where you and your guest will discuss how to leverage MCUs in applications. I think that kind of practical, hands-on advice will be invaluable to engineers. Looking forward to it.
