Active Filter Design by Dr. Shanthi Pavan Sir
Dr.Shanthi Pavan obtained the B.Tech degree in Electronics and Communication Engg from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in 1995 and the M.S and Sc.D degrees from Columbia University, New York in 1997 and 1999 respectively. From 1997 to 2000, he was with Texas Instruments in Warren, New Jersey, where he worked on high speed analog filters and data converters. From 2000 to June 2002, he worked on microwave ICs for data communication at Bigbear Networks in Sunnyvale, California. Since July 2002, he has been with the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras, where he is now a Professor of Electrical Engineering. His research interests are in the areas of high speed analog circuit design and signal processing.
Dr.Pavan is the recipient of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Darlington Best Paper Award (2009), the Swarnajayanthi Fellowship (2010, from the Government of India) , the Young Faculty Recognition Award from IIT Madras (2009, for excellence in teaching) , the Technomentor Award from the India Semiconductor Association (2010) and the Young Engineer Award from the Indian National Academy of Engineering (2006). He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems: Part I - Regular Papers, and earlier served on the editorial board of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems Part II - Express Briefs from 2006-2007.
