Capsule Bio

He was born at Cividale del Friuli (UD). Hi was graduated in 2001 and his thesis title was ‘Progettazione di un decodificatore turbo analogico in tecnologia CMOS da 0,18 UM per canali di lettura di dischi magnetici’ (Design of a 0.18um CMOS analog turbo decoder for magnetic reading channel). The work was done in cooperation with the Politecnico di Torino and with STMicroelectronics (Cornaredo – MI – Italy).
In 2002 he starter his Ph.D. in Electronic and Telecommunication engineering. In 2005 he discuss his Ph.D. thesis “Analog decoders in CMOS technology: design optimization and application to UMTS”. In the same year he won a Public Research Contract and in 2006 he became an Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova.
He currently works into Microelectronics Group. His main research field is about CMOS circuit design; in particular he is involved into some research project regarding Analog Decoding. In this field, the aim of research is to realize analog circuits that implement the mathematical algorithms used in the Error Correction Coding. He had designed (completely to the layout) an analog decoder for hard-disk reading channel. He had also realized an analog chip implementing a standard UMTS turbo code; this was the first analog decoder that implement a standardized algorithm for a commercial application. Finally he have realize another chip that use an analog decoding section as a core of a iterative decoder.
He is also involved into the “System-on-Chip “ chip group that brings together the expertise of three different fields: Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Theory. They are trying to attack a typical wireless sensor network node in order to discover if (and how) it’s possible to reduce the complexity of each part (electronics, protocols and firmware/software) without collide with another one.
His teaching activity is:
(2005) "Digital Electronics"; in this course he presented the main concepts of digital logic and the approach of CMOS digital design.
(2007-2010) "Digital Electronic Laboratory"; in this course the students learn the main aspects of programmable electronics, the structure of an hardware description language (VHDL) and they make some experience in a laboratory using a Spartan-3 FPGA.
He was on the organization committee of "Analog Decoding Workshop 2006" organized in Torino in cooperation with Politecnico di Torino, and "Wocsdice 2007" in Venice.
In collaboration with Andrea Gerosa, he had translate to Italian language the book of M. Zwolinski - "Digital System Design with VHDL"
