Nick Van Helleputte received the MS degree in Electrical Engineering in 2004 from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. He received his Ph.D. degree from the same institute in 2009 (MICAS research group). His PhD research focused on low-power ultra-wide-band analog front-end receivers for ranging applications. He joined imec in 2009 as an Analog R&D Design Engineer. He is currently R&D manager of the Connected Health Solutions group. His research focus is on ultra-low-power circuits for biomedical applications. This has led to over 50 peer-reviewed papers, and to the design of several analog and mixed-signal ASICs that have been used in commercially-available wearable and implantable healthcare applications. He is an IEEE member and has served on the technical program committees of the VLSI circuits symposium and ISSCC.
