Overview:
In this premiere webcast of our 12-part series on the Fundamentals of Designing with Semiconductors, we will introduce the concepts of physical signals, why and how they need to be changed into analog/electrical signals (through the use of devices such as sensors, microphones, antennas, and photodiodes) and then changed back into physical signals (using devices such as actuators, speakers, and motors) and how signals can be processed for the highest accuracy reproduction.

Who should attend: 
Students and engineers new to the field, as well as those more experienced engineers looking for a refresher on this or any other part of the signal chain, design, and layout.
