Chris Mangelsdorf 

Analog Devices



Miller compensation is –by far- the most prevalent form of frequency compensation for analog feedback loops. Yet despite its popularity and ubiquitous application, it harbors several intriguing secrets. Few understand how it really works. Since most approach the analysis mathematically, they fail to discover what is really going on and miss the true beauty of the technique. This presentation will explore those subtleties from a more intuitive perspective, and offer several useful insights for design along the way.



Christopher W. Mangelsdorf (S'77 - M'84) was born in Pennsylvania in 1955. He received a B.S. in physics, magna cum laude, from Davidson College, Davidson, NC in 1977. In 1980 and 1984, he received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering at M.I.T. where he held the first Analog Devices Fellowship. He has been associated with Analog Devices since summer employment in 1980 and has been a Fellow of Analog Devices since 1998.

From 1996 to 2013, Dr. Mangelsdorf worked in Tokyo, running the Analog Devices Tokyo Design Center and then adding responsibility for the Shanghai and Beijing Design Centers with the title of Asia Technical Director. He recently moved to the Analog Devices San Diego office, where he is engaged in the development of high speed A/D converters.

Dr. Mangelsdorf is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Pi Sigma (physics), and has served on both the ISSCC Program Committee and the AdComm for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. He holds 16 patents and has won the ISSCC Best Evening Session Award five times.
