Dr. Phillip E. Allen received the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Kansas in 1970. He has worked with a number of companies including Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, Delco, Pacific Missile Range, Texas Instruments, Lockheed, and Schlumberger Well Services. Dr. Allen has taught at the University of Nevada, Reno, the University of Kansas, the University of California at Santa Barbara, and Texas A&M University. He is the coauthor of Introduction to the Theory and Design of Active Filters (1980), Switched Capacitor Circuits (1984), CMOS Analog Circuit Design (1987), and VLSI-Design Techniques for Analog and Digital Circuits (1990). He is on the editorial boards of Integration-The VLSI Journal, and Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing. He is a fellow of the IEEE.
Professor Allen's current research interests include the areas of analog CAD methodology, simulation and modeling, and GaAs precision analog signal processing circuits. These interests include the specific projects of application- specific analog silicon compilers, analog testing, multilevel simulators for analog circuits, mixed-mode multilevel simulators, precision analog small signal models for CMOS devices, artificial intelligence applied to automated analog circuit design, cell compilers for the AIDE2 program, and high speed analog signal processing using feedback in GaAs technology.
