Andrea Boni received the M.Sc. degree in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Information technologies from the University of Parma, Italy, in 1993 and 1997, respectively.
From 1999 to 2002, he was a Research Assistant with the Department of Information Engineering, University of Parma.
Since 2002, he has been an Associate Professor of Electronics at the University of Parma, where he is responsible of the Analog and Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits Design Lab (https://dia.unipr.it/it/node/5938)
He has authored more than 80 scientific papers and holds two international patents.
His research interests include the design of A/D converters, integrated sensor nodes, sensor interface circuits, low-power analog circuits, and embedded electronic systems for electro-chemical sensors.
Actually, his research activity is focused on the design of mixed-signal memory arrays with in-memory computing capability for low-power Convolutional Neural Networks, and the design of embedded electronic systems and integrated devices for agriculture 4.0.
He was a Co-Founder of Silis S.r.l., a University spin-off company involved in the design of high-performance analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits. He has been in the Technical Committee of the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference. He is actually serving as a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-I, IEEE Access, IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, Sensors, and Electronics.
Prof. Boni is associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Electronics for AgriFood Electronics and a member of the Editorial Board of MDPI Electronics and MDPI Chips.
He is in the technical committee of the International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Methods and Applications to Circuit Design (SMACD).
He was in the “Top 100.000 scientist” published in 2019 by John P.A. Ioannides of Stanford University, and his paper “Op-amps and startup circuits for CMOS bandgap references with near 1-V supply “ was one of the most-read articles of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits in the 2002.
