Inna Partin-Vaisband (CV)
Inna P.-Vaisband is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois in Chicago. She received the B.Sc. in computer science and M.Sc. in electrical engineering from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in, respectively, 2006 and 2009, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York, in 2015. Between 2003 and 2009, Dr. P.-Vaisband held a variety of software and hardware R&D positions at Tower Semiconductor Ltd., G-Connect Ltd., and IBM Ltd., all in Israel. Dr. P.-Vaisband is an Associate Editor of the Microelectronics Journal.
Her research is focused on innovation in the area of distributed power delivery and locally intelligent power management that facilitates performance scalability of heterogeneous ultra-large scale integrated systems. Special emphasis is placed on hardware security and emerging technologies such as wireless power transfer, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer, and photonic networks. A method for distributed power delivery and management in heterogeneous ICs has been proposed and patented by Dr. P.-Vaisband in 2017. Her research into heterogeneous power delivery and management has been published in her book On-Chip Power Delivery and Management, 4th Edition. A distributed system of ultra-small high-efficiency on-chip power supplies previously designed, fabricated, and tested by her was in mass production within the Galaxy S5 android smart phones as part of the Qualcomm Snapdragon product line.
