Biography of Bernhard Wicht
Bernhard Wicht received the Dipl. Ing. degree in electrical engineering from University of Technology Dresden, Germany, in 1996 and the Ph.D. degree from University of Technology Munich, Germany, in 2002.
From 1996 to 1998 he was with MAZ Hamburg GmbH, Germany, as a designer for analog integrated circuits with focus on integrated optical receivers for measurement systems.
In 1998 he joined the Institute for Technical Electronics of the University of Technology Munich, Germany, as a research assistant, where he was working on memory sense amplifiers until 2002 in cooperation with Infineon Technologies.
Between 2003 and 2010 he was with the Mixed-Signal Automotive business unit of Texas Instruments in Freising, Germany, responsible for the design of automotive ICs including power management, motor control and transceivers.
In September 2010 he became a full professor for integrated circuit design and a member of the Robert Bosch Center for Power Electronics at Reutlingen University, Germany. Since April 2017, he has been heading the department for Mixed-Signal IC Design at Leibniz University Hannover, Germany.
His research interest includes IC design with focus on power management, gate drivers, energy efficiency, low-power.
Dr. Wicht was co-recipient of the 2015 ESSCIRC Best Paper Award. His Ph.D. thesis received the 2003 Texas-Instruments-Award at the University of Technology Munich. He invented fourteen patents with several more pending. Dr. Wicht is IEEE Senior Member. He also serves as a member of the Technical Program Committee of the European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC) and of the 2018 International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).
