- Ming-Dou Ker received the B.S. degree from the Department of Electronics Engineering and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Institute of Electronics, National Chiao-Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, R.O.C., in 1986, 1988, and 1993, respectively.
- Integrated Circuits Design & Reliability
- I/O Circuits
- ESD protection circuits
- On-Glass Circuit Design
In 1994, he joined the VLSI Design Department of the Computer and Communication Research Laboratories (CCL), Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan, as a Circuit Design Engineer. In 1998, he was the Department Manager in the VLSI Design Division of CCL/ITRI. Now, he has been a Full Professor in the Department of Electronics Engineering, National Chiao-Tung University. In the field of reliability and quality design for CMOS integrated circuits, he has published over 270 technical papers in international journals and conferences.
He has proposed many inventions to improve reliability and quality of integrated circuits, which have granted with 113 U.S. patents and 123 ROC (Taiwan) patents. His current research topics include reliabiliy and quality design for nanoelectronics and gigascale systems, high-speed and mixed-voltage I/O interface circuits, and on-glass circuits for system-on-panel applications in TFT LCD display. Dr. Ker had been invited to teach or to consult reliability and quality design for integrated circuits by hundreds of design houses and semiconductor companies in the Science-Based Industrial Park, Hsinchu, Taiwan; in the Silicon Valley, San Jose, California, USA; in Singapore; and in the Mainland China.
Dr. Ker has served as member of the Technical Program Committee and Session Chair of numerous international conferences He was selected as the Distinguished Lecturer in IEEE CAS Society for 2006-2007. Now, he also served as Associate Editor of IEEE Trans. on VLSI Systems. He was the Foundation President of Taiwan ESD Association since 2001. Dr. Ker has received many research awards from ITRI, National Science Council, National Chiao-Tung University, and the Dragon Thesis Award from Acer Foundation. In 2003, he was selected as one of the Ten Outstanding Young Persons in Taiwan by Junior Chamber International (JCI). In 2005, one of his patents on ESD protection design has been awarded with the National Invention Award in Taiwan.
