- Professor of Electrical Engineering
Charles G. Sodini began teaching at MIT in 1983. He received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from Purdue University in 1974, and holds MS and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. After graduating from Purdue, Sodini went on to become a Technical Staff Member, and later Project Leader, at Hewlett Packard Labs. Professor Sodini has acted as a consultant for many top technology companies in the U.S., and in 1999 he co-founded SMaL Camera Technologies.
Professor Sodini's principal fields of interest are electronics and integrated circuit design and technology. More specifically, his research concerns technology intensive integrated circuit and systems design, with application toward sensory interface electronics and wireless communication emphasizing analog signal processing and RF integrated circuits. He has served as President of the IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society.
Professor Sodini currently holds nine patents and is the co-author, with Roger T. Howe, of the widely used textbook, Microelectronics: An Integrated Approach. Other publications include:
