About

Pedro Guedes de Oliveira graduated in Electrical Engineering at FEUP and received his PhD from the University of Aveiro where he was one of the founders of the Department of Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering and where he taught until 1993. Since then he was a professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DEEC) of FEUP, where he retired in 2015. He is, presently, Professor Emeritus of the University of Porto.

His research focused mainly on Analogue and Digital Electronic Circuits, Analogue VLSI, Biomedical Engineering, Signal Processing and Neural Networks. He is the author of a considerable number of publications in national and international journals as well as in both national and international conferences proceedings.  

At the U.Porto he held numerous positions, namely as member of the board of directors and later as president of DEEC, as member of the first General Council of U.Porto and successively elected to the Scientific Council of FEUP.

He has been an executive member of INESC's Board of Directors since 1991 and was the first president of INESC Porto (now INESC TEC), a post he held until 2005. 

He was also a non-executive member of the Board of AdI (Portuguese Innovation Agency) and an executive member of the Board of the Portuguese Foundation for Scientific Computation (FCCN).

He also collaborated in several initiatives and with various cultural entities, namely as Chairman of the General Council of CULTURPORTO and as member of the Board of Directors of Porto 2001 - European Capital of Culture.

BIST Design for Analog Cell Matching

IEEE ETS2012 - 17th IEEE European Test Symposium, vol.1, no.1, pp.44-49, Annecy, France

Abstract
This work addresses a built-in self-test methodology for circuit cell identification under specific matching conditions. The proposed technique is applied to the CMOS realization of a reduced-KII network, which is a system model of the biological olfactory cortex. This model behaves as an associative memory, a useful tool for information and adaptive processes. Based on a mixed-signal approach, the test strategy makes proper use of the circuits comprising the network structure, and provides self reconfiguration as well. Both testing procedures and design of essential building blocks are described in this paper. Simulation results are presented for a reduced-KII network comprising 128-cells, sequentially tested for matching in terms of offsets and their dynamic performances.

StudECE 2012 - 1st PhD. Students Conference in Electrical and Computer Engineering , vol.1, no.118, Porto, Portugal

Abstract
This work aims to study the feasibility and limitations of amorphous Gallium-Indium-Zinc-Oxide (a-GIZO), thin-film transistor (TFT) technology for analog circuit design. In order to design and simulate circuits with these devices, a model has been developed using artificial neural networks and implemented in verilog-A for circuit simulation. The model validation and the a-GIZO TFT capability to perform signal processing operation are demonstrated with a multiplier circuit simulation, using the developed ANN model.

Publication
IEEE EDUCON 2012 - IEEE Global Engineering Education Conference, vol.1, no.1, pp.565-569, Marrakesh, Morocco

Abstract
This paper presents two initiatives run by groups of engineering students at the University of Porto: the Microelectronics Students' Group and BioStar. These groups are student-led initiatives that promote different scientific fields through self-guided projects. Both experiences have proven to be very successful in increasing the undergraduate student's interest in science and technology. This work reports the activities, organization and main methodologies employed by these groups, which can be seen as successful approaches to enhance the technical curriculum of students.
