Professor Gabor C. Temes Receives University Research Award for Excellence in Semiconductor Research

Gabor Temes CDADIC Summer 2016 Meeting

On July 18th the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), in consultation with the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), announced the winners of its 2017 University Research Award. Dr. Gabor C. Temes, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Oregon State University (OSU), was honored with this lifetime achievement award for excellence in design research, specifically for his contributions in interface electronics, including analog-to-digital converters and digital-to-analog converters, switched capacitor filters and amplifiers, and sensor interfaces.

Professor Temes has been making technology breakthroughs with his CDADIC research for more than 25 years while educating and inspiring tomorrow’s Analog and Mixed Signal engineering students at Oregon State University. Of course his work goes far beyond CDADIC and this lifetime recognition is well-deserved.

“The University Research Award was established to recognize lifetime achievements in semiconductor research by university faculty,” said Ken Hansen, president & CEO of SRC.

“Drs. Temes and Banerjee have repeatedly advanced the state-of-the-art semiconductor design and technology in their respective fields. These esteemed professors’ influence on their students has produced new leaders and contributors in the semiconductor industry. The research output from the cooperative universities plays an integral role in next-generation innovations. It is with great appreciation and admiration that the entire SRC team congratulates Dr. Temes and Dr. Banerjee.”

Dr. Temes will receive the honor for excellence in design research. In particular, he will be recognized for contributions in interface electronics, including analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, switched-capacitor filters and amplifiers, and sensor interfaces. Before joining OSU, Dr. Temes held academic positions at the Technical University of Budapest, Stanford University, and UCLA. He also worked in industry at Northern Electric R&D Laboratories (now Bell-Northern Research), as well as at Ampex Corp. Dr. Temes received his undergraduate education at the Technical University and Eotvos University in Budapest, Hungary, and his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from University of Ottawa, Canada.
