Edoardo Charbon (SM’00–F’17) received the Diploma degree from ETH Zurich, the M.Sc. degree from the University of California at San Diego, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA, in 1988, 1991, and 1995, respectively, all in Electrical Engineering and EECS.
He has consulted with numerous organizations, in- cluding Bosch, X-Fabs, Texas Instruments Inc., Dal- las, TX, USA, Maxim, Sony, Agilent, and the Car- lyle Group. He was with Cadence Design Systems
from 1995 to 2000, where he was the Architect of the company’s initiative on information hiding for intellectual property protection. In 2000, he joined Canesta Inc., as the Chief Architect, where he led the development of wireless 3-D CMOS image sensors. Since 2002, he has been a member of the faculty of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland, where he has been a Full Professor since 2015. From 2008 to 2016, he was with Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, as the Chair of VLSI design. He has been the driving force behind the creation of deep-submicron CMOS single-photon avalanche diode technology, which has been mass- produced since 2015 and is present in telemeters, proximity sensors, and medical diagnostics tools. He is currently a Distinguished Visiting Scholar with the W. M. Keck Institute for Space at Caltech and a Fellow of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft. He has authored or co-authored over 250 papers and two books, and he holds 20 patents. His current research interests include 3-D vision, FLIM, FCS, NIROT to super-resolution microscopy, time- resolved Raman spectroscopy, and cryo-CMOS circuits, and systems for quantum computing.
