Carnegie Mellon Engineering Researcher Named to STMicroelectronics Professorship

PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University's L. Richard Carley has been named the STMicroelectronics professor in engineering. He joined the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1984 and is a major contributor to the research and education missions of the department. He also is a key member of the Data Storage Systems Center (DSSC), where he has served as associate director for electronic subsystems.

"Carley is a national leader in microelectronics device fabrication and analog design, and his work has had significant impact on electronic design automation and data storage," said John Anderson, dean of the college of engineering. "His international reputation for research in microelectronics and his demonstrated excellence in teaching make him an outstanding choice for the STMicroelectronics chair."

An internationally known researcher, Carley is a co-inventor on seven patents related to his research in analog circuits. He also is co-author of two textbooks and the co-author of more than 150 papers in journals and for various conferences.

"STMicroelectronics is very enlightened in recognizing the importance in investing in university research,'' said Bob White, director of the Data Storage Systems Center. "Endowing this chair underscores the dedication and value of academia to the semi-conductor industry.''

STMicroelectronics is the eighth largest semiconductor manufacturer in the world. The company designs, develops, manufactures and markets a broad range of semiconductor, integrated circuits in a variety of microelectrical applications, including high-growth areas such as automotive products, telecommunication systems, industrial automation and control systems.

Carley received his bachelor of science degree in 1976 and his doctor's degree in 1984 in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He also is co-founder of Neolinear, a Pittsburgh-based technology company specializing in high-speed analog signal processing circuits.
