M.Sc. Joschua Conrad

Joschua Conrad received the B.Eng. degree at Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) Stuttgart in 2016. In his studies and work at Eisenmann SE in Böblingen and Stuttgart, he designed object-orientated software for applications with real-time requirements in automation. During his master studies, he worked at the Institute of Microelectronics at Ulm University and developed a high SNDR filter and a high SNDR oscillator using PCBs and developed software solutions for requirements engineering at Gigatronik GmbH in Ulm. He finished his master thesis in 2019 at the Institute of Microelectronics with the topic "Design of a Ring Amplifier based Sigma Delta Modulator".
He now works under the supervision of Prof Dr.-Ing. Maurits Ortmanns in the fileld of mixed signal neural network processors.
