Dr. Baker joined the faculty at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where his research focuses on integrated electrical/biological circuits and systems, methods to fabricate trusted integrated circuits, and the delivery of online engineering education. From 1993 to 2000, he served on the faculty in the department of electrical engineering at the University of Idaho. In 2000, he joined a new electrical and computer engineering program at Boise State University, where he served as department chair from 2004 to 2007. At Boise State he helped establish graduate programs in electrical and computer engineering including, in 2006, the university’s second PhD degree. From 1986 to 2001, Dr. Baker`s research centered on analog circuit design for instrumentation and communication systems (sweep circuits, PLLs, data converters, modem design, fiber optic receivers and transmitters, etc.) In the last few years, he has also worked on applying fundamental digital signal processing techniques to enhance sensing in array structures including: displays, CMOS imagers, and floating-gate/nascent memory technologies (e.g., flash, chalcogenide and magnetic). Dr. Baker`s current research focuses on analog and mixed-signal circuit design for communication systems, synchronization, and data conversion especially using the K-Delta-1-Sigma modulator. His research focuses on finding and electronic replacement for the hard disk drive using nascent fabrication technologies. Dr. Baker holds over 200 granted or pending patents in integrated circuit design. Among his inventions is the K-Delta-1-Sigma modulator topology used in the Baker analog-to-digital converter. He is a member of the electrical engineering honor society Eta Kappa Nu, a licensed Professional Engineer, and the author of the books CMOS: Circuit Design, Layout, and Simulation, CMOS: Mixed-Signal Circuit Design, and a coauthor of DRAM Circuit Design: Fundamental and High-Speed Topics. He received the 2000 Best Paper Award from the IEEE Power Electronics Society and the 2007 Frederick Emmons Terman Award.
