Dr. Michael L. Bushnell
Mike has over 30 years of academic and industrial experience in the areas of design and test of VLSI circuits. He is a full professor and a Board Of Trustees Research fellow at the ECE Dept of Rutgers University, New Jersey USA. Mike was elected as an IEEE fellow for his work in the areas of Design For Test (DFT) and Design for Manufacturability (DFM). Mike has published over 100 papers and was awarded 13 patents in the areas of circuit and test. Research conducted in his labs resulted in successful technology transfer to semiconductor design and manufacturing companies, most notably to NEC IBM and Bell Labs. On the academic front he has published a textbook on Test, which is widely used for DFT courses. Mike was selected from all fields of science for the Presidential Young Investigator Award by the National Science foundation that came with a $500,000 research grant award. Earlier in his career Mike worked at General Electric Co, Honeywell Inc and Applicon Inc. Mike received his BS from MIT in Compute Engineering and has MS & Phd from Carnegie Mellon in the field of Electrical Engineering.
