Marcel Pelgrom received his PhD degree in 1988 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 most cited paper of this Journal (measured in ieeexplore).
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 and 2014 he spent a sabbatical in Stanford University where he was appointed a consulting professor. From 2005 till 2013 he served as a research fellow in the technical staff of Philips and NXP Semiconductors. Next to various activities concerning industry-academic relations, he was involved 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, jury chair, governmental reviewer and many other side activities, and has written over 40 publications, three books, seven book chapters and holds 37 US patents.
