|Dr. P.K. Chan received the B.Sc. (Hons) degree from the University of Essex, U.K., in 1987, the M.Sc. degree from the University of Manchester, Institute of Science and Technology (U.M.I.S.T.), U.K., in 1988, and the PhD degree from the University of Plymouth, U.K. in 1992. From 1989 to 1992, he was a Research Assistant with the University of Plymouth, working in the area of MOS continuous-time filters. In 1993, he joined the Institute of Microelectronics (IME) as a Member Technical Staff, where he designed high-performance analog/mixed-signal circuits for integrated systems and CMOS sensor interfaces for industrial applications. In 1996, He was a Staff Engineer with Motorola, Singapore where he developed the magnetic write channel for Motorola 1st generation hard-disk preamplifier. He joined Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore in 1997, where he is an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He served the Program Director (analog/mixed-signal IC and applications) for the Center for Integrated Circuits and Systems (CICS) from 2003 to 2010. He holds five patents and is an IC Design Consultant to local and multi-national companies in Singapore. He has also conducted numerous IC design short courses to the industry and design centers. He is the Program Manager for Advanced Technology IC Shuttle Program between NTU and MediaTek, Singapore. He is also the Principal Investigator for Sensor Interface ASIC in Temasek Laboratories @ NTU. He served as a Guest Editor for Journal of Circuits, Systems and Computers on the 2011 Special Issue on Green Circuits and Systems, and currently working on the 2012 Special Issue on Energy and Variability Aware Circuits and Systems. He is a member of Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee (IEEE CAS Society).|
|Dr Chan’s research interests are in areas of mixed-mode circuits and systems, precision analog circuit design, integrated circuit analysis and circuit theory & applications. He initiated SENSOR CIRCUITS & SYSTEMS research, focusing on
• Sensor interface ICs for biomedical, chemical, environmental and nanotechnology based sensors;
• ADC/DAC ICs for biomedical and environmental sensor signal-processing applications;
• Accelerometer ICs for biomedical and consumer electronics applications;
• Sensor systems based on highly-accurate instrumentation circuits or intelligent design techniques;
• Ultra low-voltage low-power low-noise circuit design techniques;
• Power management ICs for integrated sensors and system-on-chip.
