He was born in Budapest (Hungary). He received the D.Eng. degree with honors from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 1988 and the Ph.D. degree in “Electronics Engineering and Computer Sciences” from the same University in 1994. From 1989 to 1998 he was with the Department of Electronics Engineering (DEIS) in Bologna, where he was Assistant Professor and Research Associate in Electronics. In 1998 he joined the Department of Electronics Engineering (now Department of Information Engineering) of the University of Brescia, Italy. He is Full Professor of Electronics and teaches the courses of “Microelectronics” and “Electronics Circuit Design”. He was an ST-Microelectronics consultant for many years. His research activities include circuit simulation techniques, electromagnetic interference analysis in integrated circuits, several aspects of pattern recognition and integrated voltage converters based on capacitors or on inductors. Currently he is involved in integrated circuit design for innovative applications and technologies, as, for example, integrated UWB radars for civil applications. He is also engaged in the perceived color prediction of pigments and of layers of coloured films. He authors more than 140 scientific publications, including articles in journals, in conference proceeding and 31 patents. He is Senior Memberof the IEEE.

He was born in Brescia (Italy) in 1977. He received in 2004 the MS degree with honors in Electronic Engineering from the University of Brescia, Italy, with a thesis entitled “Design of a IEEE 802.11a/b/g Dual-Band Tri-Mode Front-End in CMOS technology”. He received the Ph.D. degree in “Information Engineering” from the University of Brescia for his research on “Design of a low-power high-resolution integrated radar”. In 2006 he was visiting researcher at Advanced Research on Electronic Systems ARCES, Bologna where he was involved in the modeling of the mobility of surface (Si-SiO2 interface) electrons in strained Silicon. He was a PDF Solutions consultant in 2008. He worked at the Department of Information Engineering with a post-doc research grant in the field of low-power portable UWB radars for thru-the-wall imaging until the end of 2011. His research activities include the design and testing of innovative radio-frequency and microwave circuits and integrated circuits, thru-the-wall imaging devices and algorithms. Now he is with Cover Technologies but shares some projects with the Department of Information Engineering.
