Dr Ronan Farrell - Biography
I am from Clondalkin, Dublin, Ireland. I graduated from University College Dublin in 1993 with a B.E. and proceeded to work with ICI/Zeneca Chemicals for the next two years in Louisiana, USA, and on various sites in Yorkshire, England. In 1995 I returned to University College Dublin to start on a Masters on Sigma-Delta Modulators, sponsored by Analog Devices. This developed into a Ph.D. which I received in 1998.
After receiving my Ph.D. I joined Silicon Systems Limited (SSL) which was to become Parthus Technologies after going public. I worked within the mixed signal group designing custom silicon chips, ranging from low frequency, low power, applications to 2.4 GHz phase-lock loops. My areas of expertise are in system modelling and development, digital and analog design at low and medium frequencies, and in particular data converters utilising oversampling techniques. I left Parthus Technologies in 2001 and took an academic position with the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.
Currently I am a lecturer in the Department of Electronic Engineering at NUI, Maynooth. My courses currently include Electronic Engineering Fundamentals (EE101) and ASIC Design (EE408).
