Tutorial: The Next Wave of Mixed-Signal Interface Electronics

by @ 8:55 am. Filed under ALL, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt, Semiconductors

TUESDAY July 10, 2012
SCV Professional Activities Committee for Engineers (PACE)
Speaker: Boris Murmann, Associate Professor, Electrical Engineering, Stanford University
Time: Networking and snacks at 5:30 PM; Lectures at 6:00 PM
Cost: $33 for IEEE members, $43 for non-members, $17 for IEEE student members
