Beech, Steve Matthew
Billings, Daniel Thomas
Boeder, John D.                     There are several types of computer video display formats. Describe and compare them.
Boen, Shane Michael
Bosshart, Troy Edward
Bowers, James Charles               What are the differences between analog and digital computing? Discuss advantages and
Boyce, Brady Jameson                disadvantages of each.
Carlson, Michael David
Carpenter, Dan D.                   What is meant by yield in the semiconductor industry? Provide examples and don't forget about economics.
Carpenter, Nicholas Adam
Challberg, Curtis Alan
