Stanford IEEE Presents Analog Filters with Robert Pease

Tuesday, May 27
Invitation to Students, Engineers and Technicians:

Primary Topics will be: Low-Pass, High-Pass, Band-Pass, and Notch Filters, using op-amps and R's and C's. "Passive" filters using L's and C's will be mentioned briefly. Related aspects of R's, C's, and Amplifiers will be discussed. The use of National's Webench will be featured. We'll leave
time for Q & A.

Biographical Info for Robert A. Pease
Robert A. Pease graduated from MIT in 1961 with a BSEE degree. He was employed at Philbrick Researches up to 1975 and designed many Operational Amplifiers and Analog Computing Modules. Pease joined National Semiconductor in 1976. He has designed about 24 analog ICs including power regulators, voltage references, and temperature sensors. He has written about 65 magazine articles and holds about 21 US patents. Pease is the self-declared Czar of Bandgaps since 1986. He enjoys hiking, and trekking in Nepal. His position at NSC is Staff Scientist. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.

Pease has written the definitive book, TROUBLESHOOTING ANALOG CIRCUITS (May 1991), now in its 17th printing. It has been translated into French, German, Dutch, Polish, and Russian. Pease is a columnist in Electronic Design magazine, with over 250 columns published. The column, PEASE PORRIDGE, covers a wide range of technical topics. Many of Pease's recent columns are posted at: http://electronicdesign.com/Departments/DepartmentID/6/6.html

Pease also has posted many technical and semi-technical items on his main web-site: http://www.national.com/rap Pease was inducted into the Electronics Engineering Hall Of Fame in October 2002.
