In October, we asked you for your words of wisdom for a brand-new design engineer and boy, did you guys have advice in spades. The responses we received were so good in fact, we’ve decided to open up our December Roundtable to our faithful readers in hopes that you can offer more words of wisdom.  Check out the the most recent November Roundtable, here.

Typically, the Roundtable is an editorial section consisting of short commentary by five or six experts in a particular vertical market.

As you may know, November is a double-issue month, so we’re throwing out two different questions.
What we’re looking for is a short (anything from two sentences to 250 words) blurb answering the Roundtable question to be considered for publication online and in our print issues.

For the December 15 issue, we're looking back on 2012 and what developments in the past year mean for 2013.

Question: What trends and technologies have impacted the industry in 2012 and what does that mean for 2013?

Due: November 15, 2012

We're looking for about 200 words on whatever trend or technology you're an expert in, and how that will impact the market over the next year.

So, if you have some killer advice or industry insight (or any questions) you’d like to pass on send me an email at
