Bernabé Linares-Barranco received the B. S. degree in electronic physics in June 1986 and the M. S. degree in microelectronics in September 1987, both from the University of Seville , Sevilla , Spain . From September 1988 until August 1991 he was a Graduate Student at the Dept. of Electrical Engineering of Texas A&M University. He received a first Ph.D. degree in high-frequency OTA-C oscillator design in June 1990 from the University of Seville, Spain, and a second Ph.D deegree in analog neural network design in December 1991 from Texas A&M University , College-Station, USA.

Since June 1991, he has been a Tenured Scientist at the "Instituto de Microelectrónica deSevilla" , (IMSE-CNM-CSIC) Sevilla , Spain , which since 2015 is a Mixed Center between the University of Sevilla and the Spanish Research Council (CSIC). From September 1996 to August 1997, he was on sabbatical stay at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Johns Hopkins University . During Spring 2002 he was Visiting Associate Professor at the Electrical Engineering Department of Texas A&M University , College-Station, USA. In January 2003 he was promoted to Tenured Researcher, and in January 2004 to Full Professor. Since February 2018, he is the Director of the "Insitituto de Microelectrónica de Sevilla".

He has been involved with circuit design for telecommunication circuits, VLSI emulators of biological neurons, VLSI neural based pattern recognition systems, hearing aids, precision circuit design for instrumentation equipment, VLSI transistor mismatch parameters characterization, and over the past 20 years has been deeply involved with neuromorphic spiking circuits and systems, with strong emphasis on vision and exploiting nanoscale memristive devices for learning. He is co-founder of two start-ups, Prophesee SA ( and GrAI-Matter-Labs SAS (, both on neuromorphic hardware.

Dr. Linares-Barranco was corecipient of the 1997 IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems Best Paper Award for the paper "A Real-Time Clustering Microchip Neural Engine", and of the 2000 IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems Darlington Award for the paper "A General Translinear Principle for Subthreshold MOS Transistors". He organized the 1995 Nips Post-Conference Workshop "Neural Hardware Engineering ". From July 1997 until June 1999 he has been Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems Part II , and from January 1998 until December 2009 he was also Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks . Since April 2010 he is Associate Editor for the new journal "Frontiers in Neuromorphic Engineering", as part of the open access "Frontiers in Neuroscience" journal series ( Since Jan. 2021 he is Specialty Chief Editor of "Frontiers in Neuromorphic Engineering".

He is co-author of the book "Adaptive Resonance Theory Microchips ". He was Chief Guest Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks   Special Issue on 'Hardware Neural Networks Implementations '. He is an IEEE Fellow since January 2010.

He was coordinator of the CAVIAR EU project.
