DALLAS (January 26, 2015) – Texas Instruments recently re-elected Alan Hastings as a TI Fellow. He was among seven TI innovators receiving this prestigious title that recognizes those who fuel breakthrough and incremental technology innovation across the company in support of TI’s business goals.
TI’s Fellows are elected by their peers and TI’s senior leadership team annually. Once elected, they must be re-elected every five years. This group of leading innovators represents fewer than one percent of TI’s total eligible engineering population.
“Alan’s highly efficient approach to analog circuit design, creativity, and in-depth knowledge of semiconductor processing methods and techniques have positioned him as one of TI’s most valued technical contributors,” said Lemuel Thompson, director of TI’s Linear Power NEXT team. “His mentorship and development of engineers over the past three decades have been instrumental in the success and growth of TI’s Linear Power and Power Management businesses.”
In addition to serving as a TI Fellow, Hastings is senior designer in TI’s Linear Power business, where he has worked over the past decade. Prior to that role, he was a designer in TI’s Power Interface group, where he developed an IC that became the basis for much of TI’s current power switch portfolio. He also led development of numerous other power ICs, including hot-swap and Power-over-Ethernet controllers. He holds over thirty patents covering various aspects of analog and power management IC design.
Hastings joined TI in 1986 and began his career as an IC designer in the Voltage Regulator group. He was named Member Group Technical Staff (MGTS) in 1995, and worked his way up TI’s Technical Ladder to achieve Senor Member Technical Staff (SMTS) and Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff (DMTS) rungs. He has been a TI Fellow since 2005.
Hastings earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florida at Gainesville. He is also a senior member of the IEEE.
