He is coauthor of the textbooks: “MOSFET Modeling for Circuit Analysis and Design”, World Scientific, 2007 and “CMOS Analog Design Using All-Region MOSFET Modeling”, Cambridge University Press, 2010

  • Marcelo Pavanello
  • Hernan Pastoriza
  • Dr. Hernan Pastoriza got his Physics PhD in the Instituto Balseiro, Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, Argentina, in 1994. He is responsible for the MEMS group, SEM and low temperature physics. The group has a clean room divided for different activities (fabrication, characterization, lithography and MEMS development and testing). They collaborate with INVAP and aim to work closely with private industry. The group studies are focused in nanostructured conductors and the behavior of small particles, including periodic phenomena.

  • Fabian Vargas
  • Geza Kolumban
  • Géza Kolumbán (Fellow, IEEE) received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Technical University of Budapest in 1976 and 1990, respectively, and his C.Sc. and D.Sc. degrees from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1990 and 2004, respectively, and his Dr.habil degree from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in 2005. He is an IEEE fellow (2005) with the citation: “for contributions to double sampled phase-locked loops and noncoherent chaotic communications.” In 2012, he established the Laboratory of Software Defined Electronics (SDE) and Virtual Instrumentation (VI) at the Faculty of Information Technology of Pázmány Péter Catholic University. The SDE-VI Lab has USRP and PXI-based testbeds, FlexRIO FPGA PXIe setup completed with a baseband transceiver adapter and many remote controlled instruments from microwave spectrum analyzer to arbitrary waveform generator. In the SDE-VI Lab any kind of telecommunications systems and test beds can be implemented up to 6.6 GHz using the SDE approach, and various automated calibration and test beds providing traceability can be built.
