      Constantin Bulucea (S'69–M'70–SM'88–F'04- LF'13) was born in Romania, where he received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electronics from thePolytechnic Institute of Bucharest in 1962 and 1974, respectively. In 1969, hewas granted a one-year government scholarship at the University of California, Berkeley,where he received a M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering. His activeprofessional career spanned 50 years, equally split across the Romanian and USsemiconductor histories.


      In Romania, Dr. Bulucea was the scientific director anddirector of the R&D Institute for Electronic Components (ICCE) between 1974and 1986, with assignments of national importance, such as the introduction ofsilicon transistor technology and the development of the process technology forthe Microelectronica MOS/VLSI plant. From that period, his personal legacy includes the creation of theAnnual Conference for Semiconductors (CAS), now an international IEEE event, agraduate course and a book on Linear Integrated Circuits and reference paperson surface breakdown and hot-carrier injection in silicon, originallycommunicated at IEDM and later published in the IEEE Transactions on ElectronDevices and Solid-State Electronics.


      In the US, Dr. Bulucea remained on the technical side of thesemiconductors business, so enjoying the last years of Silicon Valley's "HappyScaling". In particular, at NationalSemiconductor, he was the architect of company's 0.25, 0.18, and 0.13 µm CMOSprocesses for analog and mixed-signal applications. Before that, he brought to completionSiliconix's device/process architecture for the next generation of trench powerDMOS transistors, which became an industry standard in the followingyears. He has been active on the R&Darena as a direct contributor and also as the 2003 chairman of the Advanced Devicesand Technologies thrust of the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) and asa member of the Technical Committees of the Bipolar Circuits and TechnologyMeeting (BCTM) and of the VLSI Technology Symposium. Between 2004 and 2012 hewas the editor of IEEE Electron Device Letters (EDL) for analog andmixed-signals technology. Dr. Bulucea has published over 50 technical articlesin international journals and holds 67 US patents with several others pending.


      In 2001 Dr. Bulucea was elected an Honorary Member of theRomanian Academy and in 2004 became an IEEE Fellow "for contributions totransistor engineering in the area pf power electronics". In 2011, he became aDistinguished Member of the Technical Staff of Texas Instruments (TI), as aresult of TI's acquisition of National Semiconductor. Dr. Bulucea retired from TI next year, on his72nd birthday, continuing to support company's patent applications that he had authored.

      Biography: Kurt Petersen received his BS degree cum laude in EE from UC Berkeley in 1970. In 1975, he received a PhD in EE from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Petersen established a micromachining research group at IBM from 1975 to 1982, during which he wrote the review paper “Silicon as a Mechanical Material,” published in the IEEE Proceedings (May 1982). This paper is still the most frequently referenced work in the field of micromachining and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). Since 1982, Dr. Petersen has co-founded six successful companies in MEMS technology, Transensory Devices Inc. in 1982, NovaSensor in 1985 (now owned by GE), Cepheid in 1996 (now a public company on NASDAQ: CPHD), SiTime in 2004 (still private), Profusa in 2008 (still private), and Verreon in 2009 (acquired by Qualcomm). In 2011, Dr. Petersen joined the Band of Angels in Silicon Valley. The Band is an angel investment group which mentors and invests in early stage, high-tech, start-up companies. Today, he spends most of his time helping and mentoring such companies. Dr. Petersen has published over 100 papers, and has been granted over 35 patents in the field of MEMS. In 2001 he was awarded the IEEE Simon Ramo Medal for his contributions to MEMS.
