STMicroelectronics hosted IEEE workshop on advanced analog design by eminent professor and industry veteran Dr. Michael H. Perrott from Silicon Laboratories. Dr. Perrott lectured on Analog and Digital PLLs (Phase-Lock Loops), VCO (Voltage-Controlled Oscillator)-based ADCs (Analog Digital Converters) and Simulation of PLLs aims at expanding the technical community’s design know-how in the analog domain.
Dr. Perrott received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1997 with a thesis titled "Techniques for High Data-Rate Modulation and Low-Power Operation of Fractional-N Frequency Synthesizers.”
The ST-hosted workshop held on Dec 2 in Greater Noida aims to facilitate focused interactions between the distinguished IEEE lecturer and academia/students while providing them with an opportunity for a hands-on experience in PLL design presented by experts on PLL and frequency synthesis.
“It is a great privilege for STMicroelectronics India to host another high-profile IEEE activity to encourage further high-end semiconductor design research in the National Capital Region, as well as accelerate the technical growth of our engineers,” said Vivek Sharma, Regional Vice President, Greater China & South Asia Region – India Operations, Director India Development Centre, STMicroelectronics.
Dr. Rakesh Kumar, President IEEE-SSCS, said, “We are pleased to sponsor Analog and PLL design perspectives from the leading contributors for the benefit of attendees in the Delhi region. This is a key part of our global outreach efforts and I would like to express my sincere thanks to the organizers and to STMicroelectronics for hosting this event.”
The ST-organized workshop is co-sponsored by Freescale, Agilent Technologies, Synopsys, and India’s premier institute of engineering, IIT Delhi.
