Biography

Born: 1924

Died: April 26th, 2013

Takashi Sugiyama was born in 1924 in Osaka. His father was a chief engineer at Mitsubishi Electric Company in Kobe and Sugiyama graduated from Tokyo Imperial University in 1947, with a degree in electrical engineering, studying power electric and wireless communications system, and weak electrics. After graduation, he joined Yokogawa Electric Works, where he remained for the rest of his career.

Upon joining the research and development group in 1947, Sugiyama worked on filtering systems, electrical instruments, and measuring instruments. Around 1955, the digital voltmeter appeared and Sugiyama started to study this kind of new digital technique. Sugiyama received his doctorate in 1970 for "Pulse Width Modulation Aid Convertery".
