Dr. William C. Miller
I received my education in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A. (B.S.E.) and the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (M.A.Sc., Ph.D.). I joined the University of Windsor in 1968 and presently hold the rank of Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. I am the Director of the Research Centre for Integrated Microsystems (RCIM) at the University of Windsor. I have carried out extensive contract research and technology transfer as part of collaborative partnerships with the private sector. I am presently the University Coordinator for the University of Windsor node of MICRONET and the Member Representative for the Canadian Microelectronics Corporation (CMC). I also serve on the Board of Directors for the CMC.
I have a long term interest in digital signal processing (DSP) and applied time series analysis. I am currently investigating microelectomechanical (MEMS) acoustical microarrays for use with hearing instruments. I am also interested in the design and implementation of the CMOS microelectronics that provide signal conditioning to the sensor's output and the corresponding digital interfaces and the DSP architecture and software. I have also investigated intelligent sensors that employ neural network architectures and their VLSI implementation. The sensors may contain either photonic and/or microelectromechanical structures.
I am currently a member of the board of the Canadian Microelectronics Corporation (CMC). The CMC is a not-for-profit organization established in 1984 to provide industrial microelectronic technologies to Canadian universities, both to facilitate world-class research and to ensure a strong source of well-trained graduates. CMC is supported by contributions of technology, services and cash from industry and by matching funding from the federal Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council. CMC's membership now includes 36 universities and 20 industrial organizations, each selecting a member representative who acts as the main liaison with CMC.
I am a charter member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a registered professional engineer in the Province of Ontario.
