Andreas Weisshaar received the Diplom-Ingenieur (Dipl.-Ing.) degree in electrical engineering from the University of Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany in 1987, and the M.S. and Ph.D. Degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Oregon State University, Corvallis in 1986 and 1991, respectively.
In 1991, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (now School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) at Oregon State University, where he is a Full Professor. His current research areas include CAD of passive RF and microwave circuits and components, embedded passives, interconnects and electronic packaging, and signal integrity. He has authored or co-authored more than 100 technical papers, co-authored Transmission Lines and Wave Propagation, 4th Edition (Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press, 2001), and authored the chapter “Transmission Lines” in Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics, edited by R. Bansal (Marcel Dekker, NY, 2004). He holds one U.S. patent.
Weisshaar was a Guest Editor of the Symposium Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques (December 2002). He is currently an Associate Editor of the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters and the IEEE Transactions on Advanced Packaging. He serves on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions of Microwave Theory and Techniques and is a member of the Technical Program Committees of several international conferences including the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium and the IEEE Topical Meeting on Electrical Performance of Electronic Packaging.
Weisshaar is an IEEE Fellow.
