Details of my research

Prof. Hayatleh received his BEng in June 1992 from Oxford Brookes University and subsequent PhD in March 1996 from Oxford Brookes University in collaboration with Imperial College, London.

His research interests in the area of electronic circuit and systems design are wide, and includes; biomedical sensors, analogue front end chip design and instrumentation amplifiers, transconductance amplifier design for high frequency RF applications, amplifier linearisation, current feedback op-amp development, RF LNA design, high accuracy voltage buffer, high output impedance current source design for medical applications, current conveyor for medical applications, and a low-voltage high-speed CMOS line driver for SerDes Applications

He strongly supports building links between academia and industry, and has worked closely with Nokia, Texas Instruments and Zarlink Semiconductors in particular. He is a firm believer in knowledge sharing and collaboration between academic institutions, and is currently working with Imperial College as a Visiting Research Fellow.

He has over 80 publications in his research fields, has two patents, and is an active keynote speaker.  Current projects include biomedical sensors, analogue front end chip design and instrumentation amplifiers.  He is currently a Professor of Electronic Engineering and he is the lead for electronics in the biomedical Imaging and Instrumentation Research Group and is the Postgraduate Research Tutor.  To date, he has supervised 20 students to successful completion of their PhDs and says that helping develop the researchers of tomorrow gives him great satisfaction.

Local and international links

Research Conference organization:

I am one of the main organizers and co-chair of the 'Oxford Analog Signal Processing Conference'.

This conference has run biennially from 1992 to 2010.  It attracted a wide range of papers on analogue design from research groups across the UK and Europe, with approximately 50 attending. This conference has been very useful for both myself, and the analogue community. The conference sponsors include Analog Devices, Dialog Semiconductors, IBM Research UK, IET, IEEE, Saul Research, Texas Instruments UK and Toumaz Technology, Imperial College and Oxford Brookes University.

IEE annual Short Presentations:

From 2000 to 2006 I was part of an IEE team involved in setting up, and judging, the annual Short Presentations for Oxfordshire Younger Members branch of the annual Short Presentations Evening. This event used to be run by the IEE, Oxford Brookes University and the University of Oxford.
