Elad Alon (M’06–SM’12–F’19) received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA, in 2001, 2002, and 2006, respectively.
He is currently a Professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences with the University of
California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA, and also the Co-Director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC). He is also a Co-Founder and the Chief Scientist with Blue Cheetah Analog Design, San Francisco, CA, USA, which is commercializing generator technologies in order to enable analog/mixed-signal solutions at lower barrier to entry. He has also held advisory, consulting, or visiting positions at Ayar Labs, Emeryville, CA, USA, Locix, San Bruno, CA, USA, Lion Semiconductor, San Francisco, CA, USA, Cadence, Cary, NC, USA, Xilinx, San Jose, CA, USA, Wilocity (currently Qualcomm), San Diego, CA, USA, Oracle, Redwood City, CA, USA, Intel, Hillsboro, OR, USA, Santa Clara, CA, USA, AMD, Santa Clara, CA, USA, Rambus, Chapel Hill, NC, USA, Hewlett Packard, Palo Alto, CA, USA, and IBM Research, San Jose, CA, USA, where he worked on digital, analog, and mixed-signal integrated circuits for computing, test and measurement, power management, and high-speed communications. His research interests include energy-efficient integrated systems, including the circuit, device, communications, and optimization techniques used to design them.
Dr. Alon received the IBM Faculty Award in 2008, the 2009 Hellman Family Faculty Fund Award, and the 2010 and 2017 UC Berkeley Electrical Engineering Outstanding Teaching Awards. He has coauthored papers that received the 2010 ISSCC Jack Raper Award for Outstanding Technology
