Mahesh Mehendale is a Texas Instruments Fellow and leads the Nano-power Foundational Technology at TI’s Kilby Labs. His current areas of focus include ultra-low power circuits and micro-architectures for “always-on” intelligent IoT sensor nodes. Before this, he worked on architectures for low-power micro-controllers and high-definition (HD) video compression. Since joining TI in 1986, he has led the development of multiple industry-leading digital and system-on-chip (SoC) designs, including C27x/C28x DSPs and DM642 digital media processor. Mahesh has published more than 55 papers at international conferences/journals and presented many invited talks/tutorials. He has co-authored a book on “VLSI synthesis of DSP kernels” and two book chapters, and holds 19 U.S. patents. Mahesh is a recipient of the “Distinguished Alumnus” award from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay from where he did his B.Tech in Electrical Engineering and M.Tech & Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering. Mahesh received the Zinnov Award for Thought Leadership in 2014 and was elected Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineers in 2016.
