Ralf Brederlow started his career at Corporate Research of Infineon Technologies as designer and later technical project manager in 1999 working on CMOS process related design for manufacturing, security aspects of MCUs, and sensor systems for bio-medical applications. In 2006 he joined Texas Instrument in Freising, Germany. He became responsible for the research and development of new circuits and technology for TI’s MSP430 ultra-low power microcontrollers. This product family is still considered to be the lowest power MCU in the market and is used in many medical applications. Such devices are optimized for usage in battery enabled sensing applications (IoT) with lifetimes of often more than 10years and often used in wearable and medical applications. In 2014 he joined Kilby Labs to start a branch of TI’s research division at the Freising site, managing predevelopment for TI in Europe.
Ralf Brederlow is this year’s past-chair of the European Solid State Device and Circuit (ESSDERC / ESSCIRC) steering committee and acts as a member of Imager, MEMS, Medical and Health subcommittee of the International Solid State Circuits (ISSCC). He is a member of VDE, DPG, and a Senior Member of IEEE. He actively participates in the ZVEI and in EU driven (CENECT, ANEAS, CATRENE) roadmap activities. In the past he has been General Chair of the International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM) in 2008, and was co-founding the RF/analog/mixed-signal chapter in the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) in 2003.
