Marcel Pelgrom received his PhD degree from Twente University, Enschede The Netherlands. In 1979 he joined Philips Research Laboratories, where his research has covered topics as Charge Coupled Devices, MOS matching properties, analog-to-digital conversion, digital image correlation, and various analog building block techniques. His IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits’ paper on mismatch is the third most cited paper of this Journal.
He has headed several project teams and was as a team leader for high-speed analog-to-digital conversion responsible for many product introductions. From 1996 till 2003 he served as a department head for mixed-signal electronics research.
In 2003 he spent a sabbatical in Stanford University where he was appointed a consulting professor. Till 2013 he was a member of the technical staff of NXP Semiconductors. Next to various activities concerning industry-academic relations, he was involved as a research fellow in research on substrate noise, variability and advanced conversion techniques. Presently he is an independent consultant.
Dr. Pelgrom served twice as an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, as associate editor for IEEE TAS, and has written over 40 publications, two books, seven book chapters and holds 36 US patents. He is lecturing at Twente, Delft and Stanford Universities, and for MEAD/EPFL.
