Salvatore Pennisi (M’00–SM’04–F’16) was born in Catania, Italy, in 1965. He graduated in electronic engineering in 1992 and received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering in 1997, both from the University of Catania, Italy. In 2016 he was appointed Full Professor at the University of Catania, where he holds undergraduate and graduate courses in electronics and microelectronics. He is also coordinator of the master’s degree course in Electronic Engineering. His main research interests include circuit theory and CMOS analog design with an emphasis on low voltage techniques, multistage amplifiers, data converters, high frequency distortion analysis, driver circuits for liquid crystal displays and micro-energy harvesting. He has published more than 110 articles in international journals (60 of which in IEEE journals), more than 120 contributions in conference proceedings and is co-author of the books CMOS Current Amplifiers (1999), Feedback Amplifiers: Theory and Design (2001) both published by Kluwer Academic Publishers, and Liquid Crystal Display Drivers Techniques and Circuits (Springer 2009). Dr. Pennisi is a member of the IEEE CASS Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee and was Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-Part II: Express Briefs and of the Wiley International Journal of Circuit Theory and Applications. Salvatore Pennisi is also a music composer and a producer, and authored two CDs: Braintrain (Jazzy Record, 2012) and Jexx Machina (CD Bab,y 2017).
