Novák, István - CEI-Europe

Novák, István

Senior Principle Engineer, Signal and Power Integrity, Oracle, Boston, USA.

Dr. Novák is a Fellow of IEEE for his contributions to signal-integrity modeling, measurements and simulations. He has 40 years of experience in high-speed electronics designs as well as teaching and consulting. He is the lead-author of the book "Frequency Domain Characterization of Power Distribution Networks", published in 2007, and the executive editor of the book "Power Distribution Design Methodologies," published in 2008. He currently leads a team of signal and power-integrity engineers at Oracle doing 10 - 25 Gbp passive-channel characterization, designs and modeling, as well as power distribution and new technology developments for server platforms.

During the past seventeen years he has been doing the high-speed  power-integrity and signal-integrity designs of SUN's and Oracle's successful T5, T3, T2000, T1000, V880, V490, V440 midrange server families. He develops signal-integrity and power-integrity strategies, simulation, measurement and validation procedures.  He introduced the industry's first super-thin laminates into volume-produced server PCBs, and drove the multi-company development of controlled-ESR bypass capacitors. He was SUN's representative on the InfiniBand Cable and Connector Workgroup.

Previously Dr. Novák advised the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) on signal-integrity and EMC issues for Fibre Channel data-collection systems of the Large Hadron Collider.

Dr. Novák had his technical education from the Technical University of Budapest, and his Ph.D. degree from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He organized and led the High Speed Technology Team at the Technical University of Budapest, where his teaching activity covered transmission lines and wave propagation, communications systems, EMC and signal-integrity issues of high-speed designs.

He holds twenty five patents in the field of power distribution, signal integrity, precision measurements and digital signal processing, and published over one hundred technical papers. One of five finalists to the DesignCon's 2017 "Engineer of the Year" Award.
