Paolo Carbone  (M’94–SM’09) received the “laurea” and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Padova, Padova, Italy, in 1990 and 1994, respectively. From 1994 to 1997, he was a Researcher with the Third University of Rome. From 1997 to 2002, he was a Researcher with the University of Perugia, Perugia, Italy. Since 2002, he has been a Full Professor with the University of Perugia, where he teaches courses in Instrumentation and Measurement and in Reliability and Quality Engineering. He is currently the Head of the Department of Electronics and Information Engineering, University of Perugia. He has been involved in various research projects, sponsored by private and public funds. He has authored/coauthored 148 papers, appeared in international journals and conference proceedings. His research objective is to develop knowledge, models, and systems for the advancement of instrumentation and measurement technology and systems engineering. Dr. Carbone served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS—PART II from 2000 to 2002 and of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS—PART I from 2005 to 2007. He is the currently VP for publications in the ADCOM of the IEEE Systems Council. He was the Chairman of the IMEKO IWADC Workshop on ADC Modeling and Testing (2003 and 2011 editions) and he is the general Chair of the 2013 IEEE NoMe Workshop on Time-to-Digital Converters. 

Paolo Carbone research objective is to develop knowledge, models and systems for the advance of the instrumentation and measurement technology. The research involves the development of original techniques for signal acquisition analysis and interpretation. The emphasis of the research is on the improvement of the performance of electronic instrumentation and data acquisition systems using state–of–the–art technologies. Research topics include:
• development of test procedures for digital instrumentation
• design of data acquisition and processing systems for quality–oriented organizations
• application of statistical signal processing for the improvement of electronic instrumentation performance and reliability
• development of models for the analysis of signal quantization effects

Paolo Carbone has performed research in US–based universities during two semesters in the years 1993 and 1996. Research topics included the design and layout of a mixed–signal  PLL, fabricated in a 0.6 μm single–poly CMOS process.
Paolo Carbone is a reviewer for various IEEE and IMEKO journals. He is author and co–author of about 70 papers published in international journals or in proceedings of international congresses. He was the chairman of the “8–th International Workshop on ADC Modelling and Testing,” Perugia, 2003.

Paolo Carbone teaches courses associated with the educational programs of the School of Engineering at the University of Perugia. Currently, these courses include:
• Design of Data Acquisition Systems
• Reliability and Statistical Quality Control
• Software Quality
• Statistical Signal Processing
He also teaches industry–oriented courses on statistical quality control and reliability. During 1996, Paolo Carbone has held a visiting teaching position at the University of California – Irvine.
