If you are thinking about bringing your technology to market in China you’ll want to attend a free, live online interview with an executive from Analog Devices at 10 a.m. PDT on September 25. Anyone with a computer and Internet connection can participate and submit questions.
Chris Halliwell, director of the California Institute of Technology Industrial Relations Center’s new online community, the Technology Marketing Center (TMC), will interview Patrick O’Doherty, a product-line executive with Analog Devices precision signal processing group.
