题  目:Enrichment of Human-Machine Interfaces by Microelectronic Technologies

报告人:Dr. Wai Lee, Taxas Instrument, USA

Abstract:
In the last decade, we have witnessed explosive growth in the number of available means that consumers can interact with the huge reservoir of digital information. Gone are the days that the only way to access to the digital world is to sit in front of a dumb computer terminal. With the advent in communication technologies, today we have Smart Phone, e-Book, and media player on the go and HDTV and gaming console at home. The rapid proliferation of these access devices leads to corresponding increase in not only the quantity but also the quality of human-machine interactions. In this talk, I would like to illustrate how analog and digital semiconductor technologies are enabling the enrichment of human-machine interfaces. Examples will be drawn from selected areas of audio, imaging, and touch. The increasing sophistication of these interfaces will fuel further advances in material, device, circuit, architecture, and algorithm development as well as in inter-disciplinary studies between microelectronics and brain science.

Speaker biography:

Wai Lee earned his SB, SM, and PhD degrees, all from MIT in Electrical Engineering in 1983, 1986, and 1988, respectively. His PhD dissertation is on InGaAs/InAlAs Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors for Microwave Applications. He was a Research Staff Member at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center from 1988 to 1993, where he did pioneering work in the development of SiGe heterojunction bipolar transistors and Monte-Carlo device simulations before joining the circuit design team of POWER microprocessor for workstation applications.

Wai joined TI in 1993. He first worked at the DSP R&D Center where he successfully led a team to demonstrate a low-power 1V DSP using a 0.35um CMOS technology. He later moved to the ASIC Division and managed the SERDES design team. He and his team pioneered the integration of large number of SERDES channels onto large digital ASIC chips and successfully developed many ASIC chips for leading networking companies. He became a TI Fellow in 2004. Since 2005, Wai has been working on mixed-signal audio products for consumer applications. He is currently the Chief Technical Officer for the Audio and Imagi ng Products in the Analog Division at TI. Their products are widely used in mobile phones, TV, and home entertainment systems.

Outside TI, Wai was in the technical program committee of ISSCC from 2001 to 2003. He was in the technical program committee of VLSI Circuit Symposium from 2000 to 2005 and was the Publicity Chair of VLSI Technology and Circuit Symposia from 2001 to 2005. He has authored and co-authored more than 30 journal papers.
