Events on October, 2019

[] Machine Learning and Deep Learning Boot Camp

Date: October 17th, 2019

IEEE SCV CAS is cross-promoting this event.

August 29th through October 17th, 2019,; Machine Learning and Deep Learning Boot Camp, @Z-Park, 4500 Great America Pkwy, Santa Clara

The Boot Camp consists of the 8 workshops which cover fundamentals of machine learning to the latest advances of deep learning technologies and their applications.  Build a solid foundation of Machine Learning / Deep Learning principles and apply the techniques to real-world problems. Learn the theoretical details of machine learning algorithms to the latest techniques in deep learning applications. Create prototypes and build practical deep learning applications to solve real-world problems. Receive IEEE PDH Certificate from IEEE Continuing Education

Go to and click ML and DL Boot camp to go to Eventbrite page and use discount code  VALLEYML_CAS40 to get 40% off by June 30th.

Use discount code VALLEYML_CAS25 to get 25% off  from July 1st till August 22nd.

Fifth generation cellular communications standards (5G) target Gb/s data-rates, pushing the industry beyond to use frequencies above 26 GHz. To maintain acceptable link budgets with sufficient antenna apertures, arrays are typically required at these frequencies and electrical beam steering is needed to retain spatial coverage. CMOS FINFET’s represent an ideal technology match, given the high level of integration required; however, power amplifier design is challenging in this technology. Fortunately, due to the array gain and distributed power among many power amplifiers, the power output required per PA is moderate. This talk will focus on how to design such power amplifiers in FINFET technologies suitable for high levels of integration on a multi-transceiver die.


Christopher Hull received his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1992. He joined Rockwell Semiconductor Systems in Newport Beach, CA in 1992. In 1998 Chris joined Silicon Wave in San Diego, California, In 2001, Chris joined Innocomm Wireless, which was subsequently acquired by National Semiconductor. . In May, 2003 Chris joined the Wireless Networking Group of Intel, in San Diego, California. And In June 2005, Chris moved to Hillsboro Oregon. In 2013, Chris spent1 year on international assignment in Munich, Germany to work closely with his colleagues from Intel Mobile Communications on 4G cellular transceivers. Since May 2015, Chris has been working as Director/Sr. Principal Engineer for Intel Labs.
