Women in Microelectronics (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This book contains stories of women engineers' paths through the golden age of microelectronics, stemming from the invention of the transistor in 1947. These stories, like the biographies of Marie Curie and the National Geographic's stories of Jane Goodall's research that inspired the authors will inspire and guide readers along unconventional pathways to contributions to microelectronics that we can only begin to imagine. The book explores why and how the women writing here chose their career paths and how they navigated their careers. This topic is of interest to a vast audience, from students to professionals to university advisers to industry CEOs, who can imagine the advantages of a future with a diverse work force.

Provides insight into women's early contributions to the field of microelectronics and celebrates the challenges they overcame;

Presents compelling innovations from academia, research, and industry into advances, applications, and the future of microelectronics;

Includes a fascinating look into topics such as nanotechnologies, video games, analog electronics, design automation, and neuromorphic circuits.

Alice Cline Parker is Dean's Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Univ. of Southern California. She obtained her BS and Ph.D. from N.C. State University and an MSEE from Stanford University. She began her academic career on the faculty at Carnegie Mellon University. At USC, as professor in Electrical Engineering, she continued synthesis research, and showed that her software could produce a chip design from a high-level specification of required behavior in 48 hours from inception to final manufacturing plan. She began artificial brain research in 2006. Her BioRC group was the first group to demonstrate the use of nanotechnology in artificial neurons and the first group to incorporate astrocyte cells (a cell in the brain that interacts with neurons) in artificial neuron designs. She is a Fellow of the IEEE, an awardee for teaching in the Viterbi School of Engineering, an ASEE award winner, and an awardee for volunteer work done for the Josh Groban Foundation (now the Find your Light Foundation) and the South Central Scholars.
