STMicroelectronics India Hosts IEEE Workshop on Advanced Analog Design

Distinguished professor and industry veteran lectures on Analog and Digital PLLs and VCO-based ADCs
Greater Noida, India /
STMicroelectronics India, in association with IEEE Solid State Circuits Society (IEEE-SSCS), Delhi Chapter, is hosting a workshop on advanced analog design at Greater Noida, India, on December 2, 2013. The workshop is led by eminent professor and industry veteran Dr. Michael H. Perrott from Silicon Laboratories. The event targets over 250 technologists in the National Capital Region (NCR) of India, providing them with a unique opportunity for hands-on design and simulations using free software tools.

Dr. Perrott’s lecture 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.

A distinguished IEEE-SSCS lecturer, 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 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.

In its continued commitment to technology leadership through the promotion of high-end semiconductor research ecosystems, STMicroelectronics is hosting an IEEE event at its Greater Noida premises for the third time. “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.
