Learning The Language of Analog Design

What Mistakes to Make and What Mistakes Not to Make

It’s never too late. Why not start today? I know you can. Yep, I’m talking about analog design.  This week we’re giving everyone a little analog university refresher.  We’re getting down to some serious analog business with Bob Dobkin (Linear Technology Co-Founder, CTO & VP of Engineering). Bob and I are going to investigate how analog design is like learning a language, why application notes are crucial to the study of analog design, and how you can update your analog circuit knowledge with just a couple clicks. 

Also this week, I’m giving everyone another chance to win a copy of “FRAM For Dummies” but you will need to listen to find out how you can win.
