Curriculum Vitae

Markus Dietl was born in Regensburg in 1968 and studied at the Technical University of Munich from 1989 to 1995. He then worked for Texas Instruments in Freising as a microchip designer for 25 years. He has gained experience in the entire product development process. He developed precision amplifiers for two years and clock generators for 23 years. During this time he was joining master students form differnet internationl countries like Germany, USA, Sweden, Italy and India and he worked closely toegther with Universities of Ulm, Stuttgart, Paderborn and Munich.He noticed that preciser modeling could improve the development of time-discrete analog circuits. He wants to investigate this more closely in his phd thesis now at TUM.


Developing an efficient design methodology for time discrete circuits by considering update effects.
