Texas Instruments’ Anand Dabak named a 2014 Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Fellow

Dec 13, 2013

DALLAS – Anand Dabak, Texas Instruments (TI) Fellow in the TI embedded processing labs has been named an IEEE Fellow for 2014 for his exceptional accomplishments in an IEEE field. This election brings the number of TI IEEE Fellows to 18.

IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement. The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth of one-percent of the total voting membership.

“Anand’s election to IEEE Fellow, a highly selective process, puts him among the few TIers who are IEEE Fellows and are recognized not only for the significance of their long-term contributions to TI, but also to the industry at large," said Greg Delagi, senior vice president and worldwide manager of Embedded Processing.

Dabak’s nomination to IEEE Fellow has been based on his contributions to TI in the area of wireless and power line communications. Within wireless, Dabak has contributed to the development of wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA), long term evolution (LTE), ultra-wideband (UWB), and IEEE 802.15.3 standards. The initial synchronization, multiple antenna techniques developed by Anand, has been included in the WCDMA and LTE standards.

For UWB, he was involved in the development of the multi-band orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) system. Similarly, he led the chipset development for digital video broadcasting-handheld (DVB-H) and was involved in global system for mobile communications (GSM) chipset development.

In power line communications (PLC), Dabak’s contributions have been in the form of standards contributions to IEEE 1901.2 (ITU-G.hn and USB-PD standards). Similarly, Dabak led the initial modem development activity in TI for PLC based on the C2000™ microcontroller platform.

Most recently, Dabak has been working on signal processing problems related to embedded processing and analog, including biomedical and the use of ultrasonic for flow metering and material sensing. 

Dabak earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from IIT Bombay in India and master’s and doctorate degrees from Rice University in Houston, Texas. Dabak joined TI in 1995 in the Digital Signal Processing Solutions (DSPS) research and development (R&D) center working in communications and signal processing. He was the manager for the mobile wireless branch in the R&D center from 2001-2008.

He is also an adjunct professor at Rice University, has more than 150 patents issued and has written more than 25 IEEE conference and journal publications.
