Office: VL 482
Gabriel A. Rincón-Mora (B.S., M.S., Ph.D., IEEE Fellow, IET Fellow) was Senior Integrated Circuit (IC) Design Team Leader for Texas Instruments in 1994-2003, Adjunct Professor for Georgia Tech in 1999-2001, and has now been a faculty member at Georgia Tech since 2001. His scholarly products include 8 books, 1 book chapter, 37 issued patents, over 120 scientific publications, over 26 commercial power chip designs, and over 60 international speaking engagements. Awards include the Society of Professional Hispanic Engineers' (SHPE) "National Hispanic in Technology Award," Florida International University's "Charles E. Perry Visionary Award," a "Commendation Certificate" from the Lieutenant Governor of California, IEEE CASS Service Award, Robins Air Force Base's "Orgullo Hispano" and "Hispanic Heritage" awards, induction into Georgia Tech's "Council of Outstanding Young Engineering Alumni" in 2000, and Georgia Tech's "Thank a Teacher" certificate. He was featured on the cover of Hispanic Business magazine as one of "The 100 Most Influential Hispanics," La Fuente (Dallas publication), and three times on Nuevo Impacto (Atlanta magazine). He received an "Honorable Mention" from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 1993 and was a Florida Undergraduate Scholar and a Florida International University Faculty Scholar in 1989-1992.
Dr. Rincón-Mora is an IEEE Fellow "for contributions to energy and power integrated circuit design" (2011); a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (2009); Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE's Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) in 2009-2010; Associate Editor for IEEE's Transactions on Circuits and Systems II (TCAS II) for 2008-2009 and 2010-2011; Chairman of Atlanta's Joint IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) and Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) Chapter since 2005; Technical Program Co-Chair for IEEE's Midwest Symposium of Circuits and Systems (MWSCAS) in 2006; Technical Program Chair for IEEE's MWSCAS in 2007; Steering Committee Member for MWSCAS since 2006; Circuit Design Vice Chair for IEEE's International Caribbean Conference on Devices, Circuits and Systems (ICCDCS) in 2008; Vice Chairman of Atlanta's SSCS-CASS Chapter in 2004; and Technical Committee Member for IEEE's CASS Analog Signal Processing (ASP) and Power and Energy Circuits and Systems (PECAS). He is Editorial Board Member for the Journal of Low-Power Electronics (JOLPE) since 2009; General Chair for the Semiconductor Research Corporation's (SRC) Energy and Power IC Workshop in 2009; Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Selection Committee Review Panelist for the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2003-2007; and Life Member of SHPE, Life Member of Tau Beta Pi, and member of Eta Kappa Nu and Phi Kappa Phi.
Dr. Rincón-Mora's research focuses on the design and development of system-on-chip (SoC) and system-in-package (SiP) CMOS and BiCMOS integrated-circuit (IC) harvesters, chargers, regulators, and supplies that manage, condition, and derive energy and power from energy-harnessing sources, miniaturized fuel cells, thin-film lithium-ion batteries, and others for wireless microsensors and other mobile and portable applications.
