Gennady Gildenblat received an MSEE (with honors) from the St. Petersburg Electrical Engineering Institute in 1975 and a PhD degree in solid-state physics from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1984. He works in the areas of semiconductor device physics and modeling, novel semiconductor devices and semiconductor transport. Professor Gildenblat has over 150 publications in these areas including several books, invited articles and US patents. In 1980, he joined the General Electric Corporate Research and Development Center in Schenectady, NY, where he was engaged in various aspects of semiconductor device physics and IC technology development. Between 1984 and 1986, he supervised the Cryogenic CMOS device engineering study at the Digital Equipment Corporation in Hudson, MA. From 1986, Professor Gildenblat was with The Pennsylvania State University, until in 2006, when he joined Arizona State University. He has developed an advanced surface-potential-based SP and PSP compact MOSFET model. The PSP model (joint development with NXP) was selected as an international industry standard by the Compact Model Council ( in 2006. In 2007, PSP-based compact varactor model (joint development with Jazz semiconductor) became another industry standard.
