Eby G. Friedman(Fellow, IEEE) received the B.S. degree from Lafayette College, Easton, PA, USA, in 1979, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA, USA, in 1981 and 1989, respectively,all in electrical engineering.From 1979 to 1991, he was with Hughes Aircraft Company, rising to Manager of the Signal Processing Design and Test Department, where he was responsible for the design and test of high-performance digital and analog ICs. Since 1991,he has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering,University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, USA, where he is a Distinguished Professor, and the Director of the High-Performance VLSI/IC Design and Analysis Laboratory. He is also a Visiting Professor with the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel. He is the author of more than 500 papers and book chapters, inventor of 20 patents, and the author or editor of 18books in the fields of high-speed and low-power CMOS design techniques, 3-Ddesign methodologies, high-speed interconnect, and the theory and application of synchronous clock and power distribution networks. His research and teaching interests include high-performance synchronous digital and mixed-signal microelectronic design and analysis with application to high-speed portable processors, low-power wireless communications, and server farms.Dr. Friedman is the Editor-in-Chief for the Microelectronics Journal, a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Low Power Electronics and Journal of Low Power Electronics and Applications, and a member of the technical program committee of numerous conferences. He was previously the Editor-in-Chief and Chair of the steering committee of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION SYSTEMS; the Regional Editor for the Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers; a member of the editorial board of the PROCEEDINGS OF THE IEEE, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS II: ANALOG AND DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING,Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing, IEEE JOURNAL ON EMERGING AND SELECTED TOPICS IN CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS, and Journal of Signal Processing Systems;amember of the Circuits and Systems Society Board of Governors; Program and Technical Chair of several IEEE conferences; and was the recipient of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Mac Van Valkenburg Award, IEEE Circuits and Systems Charles A. Desoer Technical Achievement Award, a University of Rochester Graduate Teaching Award, and a College of Engineering Teaching Excellence Award. He is a Senior Fulbright Fellow and an Honorary Chair Professor of National Sun Yat-sen University.
