A 2-day short-course titled "Short-Course on Selected Topics in Mixed-Signal IC Design" was hosted by Circuits & Systems Research Centre (CSRC), Dept. of Electronics and Computer Engineering, University of Limerick on 7-8th September 2017 at the Graduate Entry Medical School building.
Prof. Murmann’s Mixed-Signal IC Design course.
The course instructor, Prof. Boris Murmann, Stanford University, is internationally distinguished in his field and the Circuits & Systems Research Centre and the University of Limerick as a whole are extremely fortunate and privileged to have Prof. Murmann travel to Ireland and present a 2-day course. In fact, this is the third consecutive year Prof. Murmann has travelled and presented a short course at the University of Limerick and each year the course content has consisted of new material. This year’s course covered new selected topics on mixed-signal Integrated Circuit (IC) design, which included compressed sensing techniques and machine learning and inference.
The two day seminar series attracted 65 delegates from Europe and worldwide, from countries such as Czech Rep, Spain, India, England and Ireland. This year the course incorporated two guest lectures – the first was given by Prof. J. Calvin Coffey, Professor of Surgery at the Graduate Entry Medical School, University of Limerick, and the second was given by Mr. Tim Cummins, CTO and Co-Founder, AltraTech Ltd, Limerick. Prof. Coffey’s lecture was entitled “Robotic Surgery: Past, Present & Future” and Mr. Cummin’s lecture focused on “Semiconductors in BioTech”. Both lectures proved very insightful and thought provoking and the Circuits & Systems Research Centre wish to express their thanks and gratitude to both speakers for their time, effort and contribution.
