Biographical Notes

Paul R. Gray was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, and received B.S. (1963), M.S. (1965) and Ph.D. (1969) degrees from the University of Arizona. He joined the Fairchild Semiconductor R & D Laboratory in 1969, where he worked on process and circuit technology for bipolar and MOS devices. He became a faculty member at UC Berkeley’s EECS in 1971 where he and his researchers did seminal work on applying MOS techniques to analog circuits, such as filters, analog to digital converters, operational amplifiers, and other mixed signal integrated circuits. During industrial leaves of absence from his faculty posts, Gray served as Project Manager for Telecommunications Filters at Intel Corporation (1977-1978), and Director of CMOS Design Engineering at Microlinear Corporation (1984-85). Later positions at Berkeley include Chairman of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (1990-93), Dean of the College of Engineering (1996-2000), and Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost (2000-2006). Gray is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the IEEE.
