75 Years of Electronic Product Engineering: from Sparkgap Transmitters to the Moon
Ralph Baer, National Medal of Technology recipient and father of the video game and holder of over 150 patents is an immigrant from Nazi Germany in 1938, and long time NH resident, will trace his path though engineering from correspondence courses where he learned electronics and radio engineering, though his work with Lee Deforest and early televisions, Sanders Associates where he developed the first video game, and onto successive gaming inventions that continue to this day. A real chance to both get a sense for the early days of electrotechnology, and also a real world example of the twists and turns of a career in innovation. Please Registrer at http://is.gd/2014Dec5 IEEE is the largest global society for technical professionals, the New Hampshire IEEE Section is focused on Education for Innovation: connecting technologists along with students for innovation and economic growth. Technologists and Engineers are a primary source of innovation. Innovation leads to economic growth and new jobs. Education and cross-disciplinary interactions are the catalyst for innovation. IEEE's 1300+ conferences world wide, and 25+ local meetings for New Hampshire technologists are a key opportunity for individual growth, inspiration and the networking contacts that are essential to problem solving, continuing education and career development. The IEEE NH Section has over 1600 Technologists and Engineering members in New Hampshire, representing fields from robotics and the smart grid to cloud computing and medical technology. IEEE publications are the most cited in US Patent applications, and our members create the standards that connect the world: WiFi- IEEE 802 - POSIX/Linux, etc. NH IEEE supports STEM educational opportunities though FIRST Robotics, TECHFEST, pre-university grants and other programs that encourage our children to become the innovators and economic leaders of the future.
