Sergio Bampi - graduated in 1979 (Electronics engineer and B.Sc. in Physics degrees) at UFRGS and received in 1986 the Ph. D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University (USA). He worked in MOSFET drain engineering, device reliability, device and process development, in HP advanced MOS facility and at Stanford Univ. Center for Integrated Systems. He was a pos-doc at Stanford University Electrical Engineering (1998-99) working on Ultra-Low Power CMOS circuits with adaptive body biasing and circuit techniques for energy efficiency. He was Technical Director of CEITEC Microelectronics Center in Brazil from the start-up of its design activities (2005) up to 2008. He was former President of the FAPERGS research support State Foundation, and Director of Supercomputing Center at Federal Univ. of Rio Grande do Sul. He received the Landel Moura award from Brazilian Microelectronics Society in 2008 for his contributions to the advancement of microelectronics science and technology in Brazil. Sergio Bampi´s research work is in the field of nano-CMOS integrated circuits design, dedicated architectures for video processing, low power architectures, VLSI design methodology, timing/power optimization methods, RF and analog integrated devices and circuits, modeling and simulation of nano-scale devices. He has published more than 250 papers in international conferences and journals in the field of devices, integrated circuits, dedicated VLSI architectures for video and image coding, and CAD tools for physical design.
