EE Richardbinns Staffprofile 255I attended Huddersfield University to study Electronic and Information Engineering as an undergraduate and then did a PhD in Analogue Test Strategies. This involved the design of circuitry for an IC and then deriving methods for testing the design built without direct connection to parts of the circuit.
