Eric Nestler received the B.S.E.E. degree from Tufts University and the M.S.E.E degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He began his career with the Medical Division of Hewlett Packard, after which he became a Senior Designer at Symbolics, Inc., a start-up in Cambridge, MA. In 1987, he joined Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) as a senior design engineer. He became an ADI Division Fellow in 2013. He was the founder of ADI’s Energy Metering Division that to date has shipped over 500 million energy metering parts. At another Cambridge start-up, Lyric Semiconductor, he developed very low power switched-capacitor analog signal processing circuit technology for complex signal processing applications. After the acquisition of Lyric by ADI, he continued his research and design work in ultralow power sampled analog technology (SAT) designs applied to areas such as sensor interfaces, ultrasound imaging and Machine Learning. From 2017 to 2019, he (and ADI) collaborated with Prof. Naveen Verma during the creation of the Compute-in-Memory-Array (CIMA) technology that Prof. Verma developed at Princeton.
After leaving ADI in 2019, Eric continues his work in the Semiconductor industry as an independent consultant.
