Research Shines Light on Circuit Design Program

UT Dallas Spinoff Receives $250,000 from State Tech Fund

Researchers in UT Dallas’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science invented a control method and specialized algorithms that allow power converters to be more useful in power environments requiring high levels of stability and precision, or that must manage varying levels of voltage. The University licensed the technology to Cirasys for further development and commercialization. Dr. Louis Hunt, professor emeritus of engineering, is chief scientist at Cirasys and a co-inventor of the technology with adjunct professor Dr. Robert J. Taylor (PhD’04). Dr. Dinesh Bhatia and Dr. Poras Balsara, both professors of electrical engineering, are involved in the research and development.
