Expert on Analog Electronics to Join UT Dallas
UT Dallas News Center
A leading authority in the field of analog electronics has been named director of the Texas Analog Center of Excellence, or TxACE, at The University of Texas at Dallas, where he plans “to help shape the landscape for research in analog electronics,” which he calls “a fundamental technology that touches virtually everyone’s daily life.”
Kenneth O will join the University’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science next fall as a professor of electrical engineering and holder of the Texas Instruments Distinguished Chair.
UT Dallas is committed to expanding its research and education in analog technology, and Dr. O’s leadership will be key to that, said UT Dallas President Dr. David E. Daniel.
