Abstract:
Electronic applications that enhance our communication, transportation and quality of life are becoming available to the world wide consumer thanks to the continued integration benefits of semiconductor technology. Mobile devices are enabled by nano-CMOS technologies to deliver increased functionality in small form factor and power budget. Automotive safety and navigation systems benefit from highly reliable mixed signal technologies. The wide acceptance of medical devices is possible thanks to advancements in packaging capability and their integration with the biological world. Texas Instruments has the technology breadth and customer focus to grow its business with these and other new analog applications.

About the Speaker:
With a doctorate from StanfordUniversity, Stork joined Texas Instruments in 2001 from Hewlett-Packard, where he served as director of the Internet Systems and Storage Lab at HP Laboratories, and earlier as the director of the ULSI Research Lab. He began his professional career at IBM's T.J.WatsonResearchCenter, where he researched advanced bipolar technology and circuits, and later SiGe (silicon germanium) technology, finally assuming responsibility for the Exploratory Device and Technology programs at IBM Research.

Stork has written or co-authored approximately 90 papers and holds five patents. He was elected as an IEEE Fellow in 1994 for his contributions to SiGe devices and technology.  Stork is a fellow member of the IEEE Electron Devices Society, where he has served on and chaired a number of committees. Stork joined the Sematech board of directors in 2002 after several years of service on the organization's Executive Technical Advisory Board, has been a board member of the Semiconductor Research Corporation since 1999, and serves on the Semiconductor Industry Association's (SIA) Technology Strategy Committee. Additionally, he served as a technical advisor to government efforts on high-performance computing benchmarks and the national security issues emerging from Internet computing. Born in Soest, The Netherlands, Stork received the Ingenieur degree in electrical engineering from Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands.
