The EECS Department welcomes Prof. Dennis Sylvester, Professor in Dept. of EE & CS, University of Michigan.

Sylvester will present a talk entitled "Ultra-Low Power IC Design 101" on Wednesday, April 18 at 2:00 PM in Ford ITW Room.

Abstract: This talk describes recent progress in ultra-low power (ULP) circuit and system design, with application to IoT and wireless sensing microsystems. Specific circuit topics include relaxation oscillators, digital logic/sequentials, power management including energy harvesting, memories, and interface circuits. Key barriers to miniaturization of such microsystems are also described, with potential solutions.

Bio: Prof. Dennis Sylvester is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He received a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in Electrical Engineering and has published over 475 articles and holds 40 US patents. His research interests include the design of millimeter-scale computing systems and energy efficient near-threshold computing. He is co-founder of Ambiq Micro, a fabless semiconductor company developing ultra-low power mixed-signal solutions for compact wireless devices. He is an IEEE Fellow.
