TxACE Director Named

A leading authority in the field of analog electronics has been named director of the Texas Analog Center of Excellence, or TxACE, at The University of Texas at Dallas, where he plans “to help shape the landscape for research in analog electronics,” which he calls “a fundamental technology that touches virtually everyone’s daily life.”

Kenneth O will join the University’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science next fall as a professor of electrical engineering and holder of the Texas Instruments Distinguished Chair.

UT Dallas is committed to expanding its research and education in analog technology, and Dr. O’s leadership will be key to that, said UT Dallas President Dr. David E. Daniel.

Governor Launches TxACE

Texas Governor Rick Perry has announced a $16 million collaboration among academia, industry and government that will create the Texas Analog Center of Excellence, TxACE, at the University of Texas at Dallas.

The research center will help create leading-edge analog technology for both traditional electronics and emerging applications. It’s a collaborative effort by the Semiconductor Research Corp. (SRC), the state, Texas Instruments Inc., the UT System and UT Dallas.

The collaboration will focus on research in analog and radio frequency technologies to help address some of the world’s biggest challenges in such areas as energy efficiency, health care and public safety. The results should enable mixed-signal integrated circuits for state-of-art applications in a wide range of wired and wireless electronics, benefiting markets and people worldwide. (more…)
