CC Hsieh’s  Biography

 
 

 

 

 

 

 


Chih-Cheng Hsieh received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Electronics Engineering, National Chiao-Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 1990, 1991, and 1997, respectively.

From 1999-2007, he was with an IC design house, the Pixart Imaging Inc., Taiwan. He led the Mixed-Mode IC department as a Senior Manager and involved in the development of CMOS image sensor ICs for PC, consumer, and mobile phone applications. In 2007, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Tsing-Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, where he is currently a Full Professor. His current research interests include low-voltage low-power smart CMOS image sensor IC, ADC, and mixed-mode IC development for artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), biomedical, space, robot, and customized applications. He has been serving as the TPC member of I-SSCC, A-SSCC, and the Associate Editor of IEEE Solid-State Circuit Letters (SSC-L) and IEEE Circuits and Systems Magazine (CASM). He was the SSCS Taipei Chapter Chair and Student Branch Counselor of NTHU, Taiwan.
