President, Willard and Inez Kerr Bell Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Stanford University, Stanford, USA. Professor Hennessy initiated the MIPS project at Stanford in 1981, MIPS is a high- performance Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC), built in VLSI. MIPS was one of the first three experimental RISC architectures. In addition to his role in the basic research, Hennessy played a key role in transferring this technology to industry. During a sabbatical leave from Stanford in 1984-85, he cofounded MIPS Computer Systems (now called MIPS Technologies Inc.), which specializes in the production of chips based on these concepts. He also led the Stanford DASH (Distributed Architecture for Shared Memory) multiprocessor project. DASH was the first scalable shared memory multiprocessor with hardware-supported cache coherence. Most recently, he has been involved in FLASH (FLexible Architecture for Shared Memory), which is designed to support different communication and coherency approaches in large-scale shared-memory multiprocessors. Hennessy is also the coauthor of two widely used textbooks in computer architecture.

Dr. R. David Middlebrook is Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology, USA, and a well-known author and lecturer. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Fellow of the IEE (UK). He founded the Power Electronics Group at Caltech in 1970, and his primary thrust now is educating students and system designers in Design-Oriented Analysis and Measurement techniques. Dr. Middlebrook has taught in-house analog design courses in industry for more than twenty years, at such companies as Analog Devices, AT&T, Boeing, Ericsson, Hewlett Packard, Hughes Aircraft, IBM, Motorola, Philips, Tektronix, TRW and many others. In the 1980's he taught analog and power electronics courses both publicly and in-house, and his current Structured Analog Design courses have been attended by many hundreds of design engineers and managers in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
