Spotlight on: Bertan Bakkaloglu
ASU’s penchant for collaborating with industry partners to explore opportunities for translatable research and economic development has led it to be named the most innovative university in the U.S. That spirit of innovation to foster growth in academic and industrial advancement will continue as Bertan Bakkaloglu was named the inaugural ON Semiconductor Professor of Engineering.
Through this five-year-long endowed professorship, Bakkaloglu — an expert in RF and mixed-signal IC design wireless and wireline communication circuits — will help push the frontiers of scholarly impact and productivity in the field of engineering as a mentor, advocate and role model. The professorship marks the latest in a long line of collaborations between ASU and ON Semiconductor stretching back to 1999.
This partnership will help both ASU and ON Semiconductor sustain the growth in resources and people needed to maintain leadership in the tech market.
