Purpose: Advanced engineering courses are organized by MEAD Education in the framework of EuroTraining, during the summer period 2016. The invited lecturers are top experts in the field, currently working at leading European and American companies, research institutes and universities active in IC design. Courses will be taught in English. Each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance at the course.

Learning objectives: These courses are aimed at providing engineers with up-to-date information on important current issues of design in analog and mixed-mode integrated circuits. This year, the subjects proposed are particularly focused on Micro-Power, Transistor-level, PLLs, RF, Advanced CMOS, Ultra-Low Voltage, Power Management, as well as Cryptographic Engineering problems and solutions. In general, the content of the lectures covers introduction, state-of-the-art in the specific field and practical case studies. The intent is to give to the participants a broad coverage of hints and design methods to be applicable in practice.

Participant Profile: The prerequisite of the course is a basic knowledge of semiconductor devices and circuits. All levels of expertise (beginners, medium and advanced engineers) can benefit of this training. Also, company managers and marketing engineers may find useful information in the trends of modern techniques and applications presented in these classes.
