Michael Schroter (M '93, SM '08) received his Dr.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering and the ”venia legendi” on semiconductor devices in 1988 and 1994, respectively, from the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. He was with Nortel and Bell Northern Research, Ottawa, Canada, as a Team Leader and Advisor until 1996 when he joined Rockwell (later Conexant), Newport Beach (CA), where he managed the RF Device Modeling Group. Dr. Schroter has been a Full Professor at the University of Technology at Dresden, Germany, since 1999, and a Research Professor at UC San Diego, USA. He is the author of the bipolar transistor compact model HICUM, a worldwide standard since 2003, and has co-authored a textbook entitled “Compact hierarchical modeling of bipolar transistors with HICUM” as well as over 190 peer reviewed publications and 4 invited book chapters.
Dr. Schroter is a co-founder of XMOD Technologies in Bordeaux, France, and was on the Technical Advisory Board of RFMagic (now Entropic Inc.), a communications system design company in San Diego, CA. During a two-year Leave of Absence from TUD (2009-2011) as Vice President of RF Engineering at RFNano, Newport Beach, CA, he was responsible for the device design of the first 4" wafer carbon nanotube FET process technology. He has been the Technical Project Manager for DOTFIVE (2008-2011) and DOTSEVEN (2012-2016), which have been EU funded research projects for advancing high-speed SiGe HBT technology towards THz applications, and the Leader of the Carbon Path project within the German Excellence Cluster CfAED. He is presently a member of the ITRS RF-AMS subcommittee as well as the Technical Program Committees of BCTM and CSICS.
