Dr. Vladimír SZÉKELY, Professor emeritus, members of HAS
Vladimír Székely received the electrical engineering degree from the Technical University of Budapest, Hungary, in 1964. He joined the Department of Electron Devices in that year. He was Head of Department between 1990 and 2005. Currently he is a full time professor. His first research area was the theory of Gunn devices. His later research interests are mainly in the area of computer aided design of integrated circuits, with a particular emphasis on circuit simulation, thermal simulation, and device modeling. He conducted the development of several CAD programs in the field of integrated circuit design and simulation. An other area of his technical interest is computer-graphics and image-processing. He has been engaged in the investigation of thermal properties of semiconductor devices and integrated circuits for the last 25 years. This resulted in the development of novel thermal based IC elements and thermal IC simulator programs. Vladimír Székely has published his theoretical and practical results in more than 280 technical papers and 12 books or book-chapters.
