Academic Profile

Dr. P.K. Chan received the B.Sc. (Hons) degree from the University of Essex, U.K., in 1987, the M.Sc. degree from the University of Manchester, Institute of Science and Technology (U.M.I.S.T.), U.K., in 1988, and the PhD degree from the University of Plymouth, U.K. in 1992. From 1989 to 1992, he was a Research Assistant with the University of Plymouth, working in the area of MOS continuous-time filters. In 1993, he joined the Institute of Microelectronics (IME) as a Member Technical Staff, where he designed high-performance analog/mixed-signal circuits for integrated systems and CMOS sensor interfaces for industrial applications. In 1996, He was a Staff Engineer with Motorola, Singapore where he developed the magnetic write channel for Motorola 1st generation hard-disk preamplifier.

He joined Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore in 1997, where he is an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He served the Program Director (analog/mixed-signal IC and applications) for the Center for Integrated Circuits and Systems (CICS) from 2003 to 2010. He conducted numerous IC design short courses to the industry and design centers in Singapore and Malaysia. He served as a Guest Editor for Journal of Circuits, Systems and Computers (2011 and 2012) and Sensors (2016). Currently, he is a member of Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee (IEEE CAS Society), and serves a member of Editorial Board and Guest Editor for Sensors (2020).
