‘Ever see an ADC that doesn’t need a reference in any of the back-end stages? ‘Ever thought about a pipeline that has gain, but no amps? ‘Ever wonder what happens if seniors are left unsupervised? Well, that’s what this presentation is about. The message is much bigger than that, though. It’s really about failure.  And how astonishing success can be found even in the ashes of disaster.
