Cristiano Calligaro

Cristiano Calligaro received the laurea degree in Electronic Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Electronics and Information Engineering from the University of Pavia (Italy) in 1992 and 1997 respectively. After obtaining the Ph.D. degree he moved to MAPP Technology. In 2006 he established RedCat Devices srl as a start-up. During his career he has been involved in memory design (volatile and non volatile) both for consumer application (multilevel flash memories) and space applications (rad-hard memories) and software design for SEE evaluation using free CAD tools (Open Circuit Design). His current research interest is focused on rad-hard libraries to be used for rad-hard mixed signal ASICs, stand-alone memories (SRAMs and NVMs) and testing methodologies for rad-hard components. He holds around 20 patents mainly in the field of multilevel NVMs and is co-author of more than 50 papers and one book (Rad-hard Semiconductor Memories, River Publishers). He has been coordinator of RAMSES and ATENA projects inside the Italy-Israel Cooperation Programme, SkyFlash project in the European FP7 Programme and EuroSRAM4Space project in the Eureka Eurostars Programme. In 2019 he co-founded BlackCat Beyond as a start-up company focusing on silicon dosimeters for medical applications.
He is IEEE Senior Member and Eureka Euripides reviewer.
