Clive “Max” Maxfield received his B.Sc. in Control Engineering from Sheffield Hallam University in England in 1980. He began his career as a designer of central processing units (CPUs) for mainframe computers. Over the years, Max has designed all sorts of interesting “stuff” from silicon chips to circuit boards and brainwave amplifiers to Steampunk Prognostication Engines (don’t ask). He has also been at the forefront of electronic design automation (EDA) for more than 30 years.
Max moved to America in 1990. Max´s numerous technical articles have appeared in a wide variety of electronics and computing magazines, and he has held contributing editor and executive editor positions for many of these publications.
Already a noted author of over a half-dozen books, Max is always thinking of his next project. He would particularly like to write for teens, introducing them to engineering and computers in a fun and exciting way. For this is what sets “Max” Maxfield apart: It is not just what he knows, but how he relates it to the learner.
Max´s enthusiasm is palpable, and perhaps this is why he is also a much-sought-after speaker at technical conferences around the world.

Would you believe that the clever Victorians had incredibly cunning 21-segment incandescent lamp-based displays as far back as 1898?
Have you ever wondered if there may another world hidden behind the facade of the one we know and love? If so, would you like to go there for a visit?
Heads up! Better grab your free virtual seat while the grabbing is good!
As you are doubtless aware, a pentakis dodecahedron is a Catalan solid that boasts 60 isosceles triangle faces, 90 edges (2 types), and 32 vertices (2 types).
I’m squirming in my seat fighting the desire to click the “Pledge” button. I fear the “Obsessed” or even the “Even More Obsessed” kits are singing their siren songs.
Should there be a “Finishing School” for electrical and electronic engineers in which they were taught a suite of real-world nitty-gritty skills?
When you look at these little scamps, do you feel your creative juices starting to slosh around?
This is one of those ideas that leaves me kicking myself wondering why I didn’t think of it first.
I just ran across a picture from 2015 showing a guy wearing one of the early Magic Leap prototypes.
