In 1972 he was a staff engineer with the Integrated Circuits Engineering Corporation in Phoenix, and in 1973 he joined Tektronix, Inc., as an MOS/LSI design engineer. He left Tektronix in September, 1975, to pursue the Ph.D. degree at the University of California at Berkeley, where his research dealt with the theoretical and practical design of switched capacitor filters. In April 1979, he joined Texas Instruments as a member of the technical staff in the CCD Signal Processing Branch of the Central Research Laboratories. In 1980 Dr. Allstot joined MOSTEK in Carrollotn, Texas, as a deisgn engineer. His interests are in the applications of VLSI technologies to analog-digital signal processing systems.
