Prof. Mor Mordechai Peretz
Director of the Center for Power Electronics and Mixed-Signal IC, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Ben-Gurion University
Prof. Peretz is a prominent electrical engineer and computer scientist and has gained much experience in using his academic background in the industry.
In 2013, Prof. Peretz founded, and currently directs, the Center for Power Electronics and Mixed-Signal IC, a faculty center at the Ben Gurion University for advanced basic and applied research in electronics, with primary focus of miniaturization of Power Management systems.
Prior to that Prof. Peretz was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Laboratory for Power Management and Integrated SMPS at the University of Toronto. In 2012, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Ben-Gurion University, where he is currently heads the academic track of Circuits, Devices, Microelectronics and VLSI. He also serves as a representative of new faculty of engineering members at the BGU senate.
The main interests of Prof. Peretz’s research include switch-mode power supply (SMPS) miniaturization and integration, digital and smart control for efficient energy processing, mixed-signal IC, renewable energy and harvesting systems, ultra-high-speed switching and pulse-power, applications of nonlinear magnetics, and wireless energy.
Prof. Peretz has authored over 100 publications and filed 15 patens. He promotes global awareness to power management by serving in various technical committees and as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on PE and the IEEE Jour. of Emerging and Selected Topics in PE (JESTPE). His innovation is broadly adopted by the industry, with several successful licenses of technology from controllers, through topologies, to full systems.
He holds a B.Tech. degree in electrical engineering from the Negev Academic College of Engineering, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Ben-Gurion University.
