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.
He joined the Institute of Microelectronics of the University of Applied Sciences Nortwestern Switzerland (IME/FHNW
) as a research fellow in 2005 and became a full professor in February 2012. He is also a part-time 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 was an Associate Editor of TCAS-I
from 2008-2011; and he is a member of the ESSCIRC
technical committee and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE CAS Society
