Erik Jan Marinissen is a scientific director at IMEC in Leuven, Belgium, the world-leading independent R&D center in nanoelectronics technology. His research on IC test and design-for-test covers topics as diverse as 3D-stacked ICs, CMOS below 10nm, silicon photonics, and STT-MRAMs. Marinissen is also visiting researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. In his thirty-year career in industrial research, Marinissen worked previously at NXP Semiconductors and Philips Research in Eindhoven, Nijmegen, and Sunnyvale. He holds an MSc degree in computing science (1990) and a PDEng degree in software technology (1992), both from Eindhoven University of Technology.
Marinissen is member of the IEEE’s Test Technology Standardization Committee and served as editor-in-chief of IEEE Std 1500, and as founder/chair (currently vice-chair) of the IEEE Std P1838 Working Group on 3D-SIC test access. Marinissen served as general/program chair of several large conferences (including ETS’06, DATE’13) and founded and chaired three workshops himself (e.g., 3D-TEST’09-’15). He serves on numerous conference committees and on the editorial boards of IEEE Design & Test and Springer’s Journal of Electronic Testing: Theory and Applications.
Marinissen is (co-)author of 250+ journal and conference papers (h-index: 42) and (co-)inventor of 18 patent families. He is recipient of the Most Significant Paper Awards at ITC 2008 and 2010, Best Paper Awards at the Chrysler-Delco-Ford Automotive Electronics Reliability Workshop 1995 and the IEEE International Board Test Workshop 2002, the Most Inspirational Presentation Award at the IEEE Semiconductor Wafer Test Workshop 2013, the HiPEAC Technology Transfer Award 2015, the SEMI Best ATE Paper Award 2016, the National Instruments’ Engineering Impact Award 2017, and the IEEE Standards Association’s Emerging Technology Award 2017.
Marinissen has supervised 42 international MSc and PhD students. He is an IEEE Fellow, Computer Society Golden Core Member, and member of the Patient Researchers Working Group of the Dutch Parkinson’s Disease Association.
