NMI R&D Workshop: Analog and Mixed-Signal Design
29th April 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
In Partnership with:
Analog and Mixed Signal Design is a key microelectronics discipline that has strength in depth in the UK. Innovation in Analog thinking and approach for effective end-market solutions is essential – whether it is in the development of new cost-effective applications on older technology nodes, or in the creation of solutions in challenging advanced technology nodes.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the broad supply chain and community in Analog & Mixed-signal together to discuss the state of the art in innovation and R&D.
The aim of the workshop is not only to communicate current innovation activity, but provide the community a platform from which to collaborate and develop new ideas and projects.
