Univ.-Prof. Dr. Volker Strumpen
Head of Institute
I am a Professor at Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria, and director of the Institute for Computer Architecture. Prior to that, I was a Research Staff Member at IBM's Austin Research Laboratory, helped starting up Akamai Technologies, and built the prototype of the routing technology that led to Akamai spin-off Sockeye Networks, which has been acquired by Internap. I also spent some time working on semiconductor technology at Sony. I served in various academic positions at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT, the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Department of Computer Science at Yale University, and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Iowa. I received a doctorate from ETH Zurich and a diploma from RWTH Aachen.
Introduction to Digital Circuits is my attempt to advance online learning and online publishing in form of an interactive textbook (ibook for short), enabled by bleeding-edge web technologies.
