"My goal is to do more with less. To enable new medical, wireless and autonomous applications, by making electronics extremely tiny, green, versatile, and intelligent."

Research profile

Pieter Harpe is an associate professor with the Mixed Signal Microelectronics research group at the TU/e department of Electrical Engineering. He is working in the field of low-power mixed-signal microelectronics with a main focus on Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs), but also including other analog and RF circuits.  

ADCs are used in many applications (such as audio, video, wireless communication systems, sensor interfaces, computers, and so on). Harpe is particularly interested in mobile and medical applications, where it is important to achieve very low power consumption levels (usually micro-Watts or even nano-Watts). It is far from straightforward to achieve such low power consumptions and still be able to digitize the analog signals with sufficient speed and precision.  

Pieter Harpe has contributed to more than 100 scientific publications and 7 patents. He received a VENI grant (2013) and a VIDI grant (2018) from The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). He is a TPC member for ESSCIRC and AACD, and was a TPC member for ISSCC. He is a Senior IEEE member since 2015 and served as IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Distinguished Lecturer in 2016 and 2017, and as IEEE JSSC guest editor for the ESSCIRC 2017 special edition. 

Academic background

Pieter Harpe studied Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology where he received his MSc and PhD degrees in 2004 and 2010, respectively. In 2008, he started as researcher at Holst Centre/imec, The Netherlands. Since then, he has been working on ultra low-power wireless transceivers, with a main focus on ADC research and design. In April 2011, he joined Eindhoven University of Technology as an Assistant Professor on low-power mixed-signal circuits. He became an Associate Professor in July 2017. Pieter Harpe also acts as a consultant for various companies and institutes.
