Since 2004, he has been a Full Professor in the Department of Electronics Engineering, National Chiao-Tung University. From 2006 to 2008, he was the Director of Master’s Degree Program with the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, National Chiao-Tung University, as well as the Associate Executive Director of National Science and Technology Program on System-on-Chip (NSoC), Taiwan. Since 2008, he has been the Chair Professor and the Vice President of I-Shou University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, by rotation. In the field of reliability and quality design for circuits and systems in CMOS technology, he has authored or coauthored over 360 technical papers in international journals and conferences. He has proposed many inventions to improve the reliability and quality of ICs, which have been granted with 142 U.S. patents and 144 R.O.C. (Taiwan) patents. He had been invited to teach and/or to consult the reliability and quality design for IC products by hundreds of design houses and semiconductor companies in the worldwide IC industry. His current research interests include reliability and quality design for nanoelectronics and gigascale systems, high-speed andmixed-voltage I/O interface circuits, on-glass circuits for system-on-panel applications, and biomimetic circuits and systems for intelligent prosthesis.
Prof. Ker has served as a member of the Technical Program Committee and the Session Chair of numerous international conferences. He served as the Associate Editor for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON VLSI SYSTEMS. He has been selected as the Distinguished Lecturer in the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (2006–2007) and in the IEEE Electron Devices Society (2008–2009).
