About the authors

Robert Baumann, TI fellow (emeritus), chief technologist

Robert discovered reaction of 10B with low-energy cosmic neutrons in specific IC layers was a dominant reliability risk and developed mitigation schemes directly reducing product failure rates ten-fold. He drove several radiation-effects breakthroughs in the industry, was responsible for development of international standards and changing U.S. export control laws, and a technical leader in various TI Dallas and TI Japan groups during his 29 years at TI. Robert was elected TI and IEEE Fellow, coauthored / presented >  90 papers, two book chapters, and has fifteen U.S. patents. Robert retired from TI in 2018.
