Professor Alexandre Yakovlev FREng

Professor of Computer System Design, Newcastle University

Professor Alex Yakovlev is an academic leader in asynchronous digital design; his research theory and practice played a significant role in establishing this important field of electronics. The results of his research have been used by many UK and international electronic design companies.

One UK-based company CTO cited that his “design approach for complex asynchronous logic has revolutionised the design process, enabling right-first-time designs instead of three silicon spins”. This innovation has substantially reduced time to market and production costs.
