He established tei Technology LLC in May 2008, Omni Water Solutions LLC, in 2009 at Austin Texas. He started tei Solutions Inc in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan in 2010, where, he manages R&D foundry developing new devices, process technologies for VLSIs. He also integrates emerging technology onto semiconductor manufacturing technology to create innovative products/businesses. Due to his contributions to 200 MHz RISC microprocessor, he got 1999 R&D 100 Award. He served as subcommittee and executive committee member of IEDM from 1993 to 2002. He introduced Manufacturing Session in 1998 and chaired IEDM in 2002. He was a member of EDS Administrative Committee from 2005 to 2010. He was a technical program member for VLSI Technology Symposium in 2007 and 2008. He serves as a chairman of VLSI committee of EDS from 2009 and AdHoc Committee on Asia EDS Conference from 2014.
Benjamin Iniguez - Senior Member
Benjamin Iñiguez obtained the Ph D in Physics in 1992 and 1996, respectively, from the Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB). From February 1997 to September 1998 he was working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Rensselaer Polytecnhnic Institute in Troy (NY, USA). From September 1998 to January 2001 he was working as a Postdoctoral Scientist in the Université catholique de Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium), supported by two Marie Curie Fellowships from the European Commission. In February 2001 he joined the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Control Engineering (DEEEiA)of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV), in Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain) as Titular Professor. In February 2010 he became Full Professor at URV. He obtained the Distinction from the Generalitat for the Promotion of University Research in 2004 and the ICREA Academia Award (the highest award for university professors in Catalonia, from ICREA Institute) in 2009 and 2014, for a period of 5 years each. He led one EU-funded project (“COMON”, 2008-12) devoted to the compact modeling of nanoscale semiconductor devices and he is currently leading one new EU-funded project (DOMINO, 2014-18) targeting the compact modeling of organic and oxide TFTs. His main research interests are the characterization, parameter extraction and compact modelling of emerging semiconductor devices, in particularorganic and oxide Thin-Film Transistors, nanoscale Multi-Gate MOSFETs and GaN HEMTs. He has published more than 150 research papers in international journals and more than 130 abstracts in proceedings of conferences.
