Purpose: Advanced engineering courses are organized by MEAD Education during the summer period 2018. 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.

    Registration: If a participant selects a course but notes that some modules of another program held during the same week are of higher interest, registration to these modules is possible. On the same way, if a course lasts 4 days, it is possible to choose modules among the other programs in order to complete a 5-day formation.
    How to proceed? On the on-line regisration form, select the course you are interested in and cross the “I wish to take one or more modules of another course” field as well. The course organizer will then contact you to know exactly which modules you want to register to. Corresponding course material will be distributed as well.

    Course Location: The courses will be held at the School of Engineering (Building EL-B, rooms ELA1 and ELA2: see EPFL Plan) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, (EPFL), Switzerland. Classroom numbers will be indicated at the information desk, building EL-B, before the course start.
