Texas Analog Center of Excellence

Kenneth K. O (UT/Dallas), Director

Reshaping the research landscape for analog research, TxACE anchors a multi-million dollar collaborative effort
that is the addressing the difficult challenges facing analog designers, and creating new fields in electronics.

Overview

The Texas Analog Center of Excellence (TxACE) is dedicated to helping shape the landscape for research in analog electronics. It's the centerpiece of a $16 million collaborative effort to help solve difficult problems facing analog designers and create new fields in electronics that can help address a variety of significant global challenges.

Research Focus

The Texas Analog Center of Excellence at UT Dallas has awarded nearly $3 million to Texas researchers to develop analog technology that enhances public safety and security.The projects funded by the grants are intended to:

  • Enable a new generation of devices that can scan for harmful substances such as explosives and chemical agents by researching 200-300-GHz silicon integrated circuits for use in spectrometers.
  • Significantly reduce the cost of in-vehicle radar technology that could help improve automotive safety by researching circuit techniques that can improve manufacturing and lower test and packaging costs.

Recipients of the three-year grants come from Texas A&M University, UT Austin, Rice University, the University of North Texas and UT Dallas.

Center Management

Professor Kenneth O, a leading authority in the field of analog electronics is the director of TxACE at the university of Texas at dallas. Professor O is holder of the Texas Instruments Distinguished Chair at the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.

TxACE is a $16 million project that Texas Governor Rick Perry announced in October 2008. Based at UT Dallas, it’s a collaborative effort jointly funded by SRC, the Texas Emerging Technology Fund, Texas Instruments,and the UT System and UT Dallas.
