Koichiro Ishibashi

IEEE Fellow, The University of Electro-Communications (UEC), Tokyo Japan


Dr. Koichiro Ishibashi has been a professor of The University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo Japan, since 2011. He has been serving a gust professor at Ho Chi Minh City University of Science and Ho Chi Minh University of Technology in Vietnam from 2012. He was born in Tokyo Japan in 1958, and received BS degree from Sophia University, and MS and PH. D degree from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1980, 1982, and 1985, respectively. He joined Central Research Laboratory, Hitachi Ltd., in 1985 where he investigated high density SRAMs of 256kbit, 1Mbit and 4Mbit SRAMs. Also has he developed low power microprocessor, called as SH4 in Hitachi. From 2001 to 2004, he led the low power design development team in Semiconductor Technology Academic Research Center (STARC), where he investigated low power design technologies of logic, memory, and analog circuits for SOC. From 2004 to 2011, he was in Renesas Electronics where he developed low power IPs mainly for mobile phone SOC.

Throughout his 40 years of R & D career, he has presented more than 60 academic papers, more than 190 presentations at international conferences including 14 key note or invited presentations. He holds more than 250 patents mainly on low power LSI circuits in Japan, U.S., Europe, Taiwan, Korea, and China. He was awarded R&D 100 for the development of SH4 Series Microprocessor in 1999, and The Takeda Techno-Entrepreneurship Award in 2001 for the research on Low Power Circuit Technology of Micro-controllers. His current interests are IoT technology and applications, which include low power IoT sensors, Energy harvesting, Bio sensors and data processing by AI, Implementation of IoT sensors, Infection diseases screening, as well as Ultra low-power LSI design technology for IoT. He is a Fellow of IEEE since 2005 and a member of IEICE since 1986.
