Profile of Hanspeter Schmid



Hanspeter Schmid received the diploma in electrical engineering in 1994, the post-graduate degree in information technologies in 1999, and the degree Doctor of Technical Sciences in 2000, all from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich), Switzerland.

He joined the Signal and Information Processing Laboratory of the ETH Zürich as a teaching assistant in 1994 and became a research assistant and junior lecturer in the field of analogue integrated filters.

From 2000-2005, he was an Analog-IC designer with Bernafon AG, Switzerland, where he was part of a design team who developed a new IC platform for hearing aids, where he worked on audio low-noise amplifiers and voltage regulators in particular and on full-system signal integrity in general.

Now he is a research fellow at the Institute of Microelectronics of the University of Applied Sciences Nortwestern Switzerland (IME/FHNW) and a senior lecturer at ETH Zürich (Analog Signal Processing and Filtering). His main research interests are fast low-power circuits (mainly for sensor electronics), signal integrity in analog signal processing, and sigma-delta conversion.

Hanspeter Schmid was IEEE CAS Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee Co-Chair from 2008-2010 and still is a committee member; he is an Associate Editor of TCAS-I, a member of the ESSCIRC

technical committee, and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE CAS Society.
