Dr. Kush Gulati is Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Omni Design Technologies. He has led the company since the founding of the company in 2015.
Kush has more than two decades of experience in high performance analog circuits design with pioneering contributions in reconfigurable analog-to-digital converters. In 2007 he co-founded Cambridge Analog Technologies, Inc. (CAT) where he led the company as President and CEO. CAT was focused on a revolutionary ultra-low power technology with wide applicability including in high-speed data converters.
In August 2011, CAT was acquired by Maxim Integrated, Inc. where he was Executive Director and General Manager of the Advanced IP Solutions Group. In 2015, he founded Omni Design Technologies, Inc. focused on leveraging fundamentally disruptive and proprietary ultra-low power circuit techniques that can enable a new generation of integrated circuits.
Prior to co-founding Cambridge Analog Technologies, in 2001, he helped co-found Engim, Inc., a wireless communications start-up based in Acton, MA, where he led their mixed-signal/analog group developing high-speed and high-resolution data converters. In 2005 he joined Bitwave Semiconductor, a startup developing wireless handsets based on software defined radio techniques, based in Lowell, MA, where he was the Director of analog and mixed-signal development.
He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science with a Minor in business from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, the M.S. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, and the B.S. degree in electronics and communication engineering from Delhi Institute of Technology (now NSIT), New Delhi, India. His doctoral research at MIT was directed towards the design of a low-power reconfigurable analog-to-digital converter. From 1993 to 1995, he worked on circuit techniques for minimizing susceptibility of DRAMs to alpha particles and cosmic rays.
Dr. Gulati has numerous publications and patents including many in the area of integrated circuit design. While at MIT, Dr. Gulati received the Maxim Integrated Products Fellowship and the Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award.
He is currently serving on the Technology Directions Technical Committee at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference. He is also on the advisory board of multiple companies including Prescient Devices, Cambridge Electronics, Inc. and Skulpt, Inc. He has previously served on the Technical Program Committee of the VLSI Circuits Symposium and the SDR Forum
