Science is about knowing; engineering is about doing. -- Henry Petroski
Marcel Hendrix is Assistant Professor in the Electromechanics and Power Electronics group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He has held this position since 1998, specializing in the research and design of high-precision, high-performance power electronics and analog circuitry.
From starting his career at Philips’ Lighting Division, Hendrix has been involved in the design and specification of switched-mode power supplies for solar inverters, low- and high-pressure gas-discharge lamps, and LEDs. His current interests are design automation, large-scale (cloud) computing, IC development, system simulation, modeling, discrete-time control techniques, and (hybrid) switched-capacitor power conversion.
Marcel Hendrix received his MSc in Electronic Circuit Design from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 1981. He started working in R&D at Philips in 1982 and held several R&D positions there. He is currently employed at Signify.
Hendrix joined Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) as part-time Associate Professor in 1998.
Since 2011, Hendrix has been the official maintainer of and contributor to NGSPICE, an open software circuit simulator based on Berkeley's SPICE 3f5.
