Luke J. Turgeon, Ph.D., P.E.

Luke is the founder and President of Turgeon Engineering, Inc. He received his B.S.E.E., M.S.E.C.E, and Ph.D. from the University of Mass. in 1971, 1973, and 1977 respectively. He held the position of Assistant Professor at the University of South Dakota School of Mines from 1977 to 1979. He was a member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Labs from 1979 to 1988. Since 1988 he has been operating his own businesses. His primary career experience has been in semiconductor devices, integrated circuit design and CAD tools. While at AT&T Bell Labs, he was involved in the development of physical bipolar transistor model for SPICE simulations; developed the first linear array for AT&T Bell labs; was a leader in the deployment of top down design flow for analog integrated circuit designs; and designed ASICs for ESS5, dc-dc converters, ISDN and IEEE488 interface. As an independent contractor he designed ASICs for telephone line feed, PIN electronics for automatic test equipment, aircraft radar systems, ADSL, cable modem, high reliability laser controllers for submarine optical applications, a CCD driver, and a high speed FET driver. He also developed a mix-signal array for a BiCMOS process. He directed the development of a full set of CAD tools (schematic capture, simulation, design rule check, and layout versus schematic verification) at Turgeon Engineering for BiCMOS mix-signal ASIC design. Dr. Turgeon has been and continues to be an advocate of using engineering methodology for the design of analog integrated circuits.
