Let the Office of Research be your spotlight as we showcase brilliant research taking place at our University’s center.

Join the Office of Research as they showcase Dr. Kenneth O at this Center Stage seminar. Dr. O, Texas Instruments Distinguished University Chair, professor of electrical engineering, and director of the Texas Analog Center of Excellence (TxACE), will shine a spotlight on the research that takes place at the largest analog research center based in an academic institution. Information related to the UT Dallas TxACE Collaboration Initiative (TCI), an internal funding mechanism designed to stimulate interdisciplinary research collaborations with a high likelihood of securing major externally funded research, will also be shared.

Kenneth O received his S.B, S.M, and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA in 1984, 1984, and 1989, respectively. From 1989 to 1994, Dr. O worked at Analog Devices Inc. developing sub-micron CMOS processes for mixed-signal applications, and high-speed bipolar and BiCMOS processes. He has been a professor at the University of Florida, Gainesville from 1994 to 2009. He is currently the Director of Texas Analog Center of Excellence and TI Distinguished University Chair Professor of Analog Circuits and Systems at the University of Texas at Dallas. His research group is developing circuits and components required to implement analog and digital systems operating at frequencies up to 40THz using silicon IC technologies. Dr. O is the President of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. He has authored and co-authored ~270 journal and conference publications, as well as holding 13 patents. Dr. O has received the 2014 Semiconductor Research Association University Researcher Award. Prof. O is also an IEEE Fellow.
