Logic Devices for the Modern Design World

In a two part series of 1 Hour Seminars, applications and innovations in logic devices for the automotive and industrial markets will be covered. The first of the series will focus on Q100 reliability certification, preferred package types for high reliability applications, analog switch design including current injection and thermal resistance measurements. The second series will cover Logic device selection from the wide variety of process and packages available as well as roadmaps and new product introductions. We are also pleased to announce the latest in our series of Engineering Handbooks - “Logic Applications” which will be released this autumn.
