Prof. Dr.-Ing. Maurits Ortmanns

Maurits Ortmanns received the Dipl.-Ing. in electrical engineering from
the Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany, in 1999 and the Dr.-Ing.
degree from the Albert-Ludwigs-University, Freiburg, Germany, in 2004,
both with highest honors.

In 1997 and 1998, he was with the Research Center Karlsruhe, Germany, and
with EXAR, Inc., Fremont, CA, as an engineering intern working in the
field of Microsensors. In 1999, he joined the Institute of
Microelectronics at the Saarland University, where he was working as a
research assistant. In 2001, he moved to the Institute of Microsystem
Technology, Albert-Ludwigs-University, where he was working toward the
Ph.D. degree in the field of continuous-time sigma-delta modulator design
until 2004.

From 2004 - 2005, he has been with sci-worx GmbH, Hannover, Germany, where
he was working in the field of mixed-signal and analog circuits for
biomedical implants, low-voltage, low-power applications, and high-speed
circuits. In the beginning of 2006, Dr. Ortmanns joined the HSG-IMIT,
Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany, and was additionally a guest lecturer at
the University of Freiburg, Germany. In May 2006, he was appointed a
Juniorprofessorship for Integrated Interface Circuits at the Institute for
Microsystems Engineering in Freiburg.

Since May 2008, Prof. Ortmanns is full professor at at the Faculty of
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Ulm,
where he heads the Institute of Microelectronics.

Prof. Ortmanns received the VDI award for the Best Masters Degree and the
VDE award for the Best Masters Thesis in electrical engineering from the
University of Saarland in 1999. He has been a member of the German
National Academic Foundation since 1994, the IEEE since 2001 and the VDE
since 2006. He served as program commitee member of the European Solid
State Circuits Conference (ESSCirC), the Design Automation and Test
Conference (DATE) and the European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design
(ECCTD) and was reviewer for major circuits and systems journals.

Prof. Ortmanns' main research interests include mixed-signal circuit
design, self-correcting and reconfigurable analog circuits, and
electronics for biomedical applications.
