Richard Carley, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been awarded the STMicroelectronics Professorship in Engineering. A leader in both research and education, he has co-authored/authored 2 textbooks and more than 150 papers. His books have been used for courses at Carnegie Mellon, UC San Diego, the University of Illinois, and Virginia Tech. Carley has graduated 50 graduate students.
His internationally acclaimed research focuses on computer aided design (CAD) for analog circuit synthesis, high speed analog signal processing circuits, low power and low voltage digital logic, and the design of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
Carley has served as the Associate Director for Electronic Subsystems for the Data Storage Systems Center (DSSC) and is the Director for the Center for Highly Integrated Information Processing and Storage Systems (CHIPS). The co-inventor of 7 patents, he was elected Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., (IEEE) Fellow in 1997. A paper he co-authored for the Design Systems, Languages, and Software area at the 24th ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conference was recognized as one of the most influential papers in the first 25 years of the conference.
He also is a co-founder, along with Professor of ECE and Computer Science Rob Rutenbar, of Neolinear, a Pittsburgh-based technology company specializing in high-speed analog signal processing circuits.
