Modern Electronic Components(MEC)

  • In the half century, following the invention of the transistor, unprecedented developments related to solid state components have helped generating a massive market for electronics and information technologies. In this fast changing field, the professionals involved with industrial systems come across many modern component families. The course is designed as an introduction to these new component families, both analogue and digital, together with data conversion (analogue to digital and digital to analogue conversion) components and their applications. 50% of time is dedicated to hands-on sessions.
Target Group
  • Electronic, Telecom, Computer Hardware Professionals, Process Industry Engineers and Technicians. In addition, the course can be beneficial for scientists and academics who are working with modern semiconductor components.
