Welcome to the homepage of A. Matthew Francis, Ph.D.

Matt is an expert in IC design, modeling and simulation, including in environmental effects.  He is President of Ozark IC, Inc, a provider of custom integrated circuits solutions for all environments (from consumer grade to extreme).  He also serves as an Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Arkansas, and is chair of the Northeast Arkansas IEEE Ozark Section (2016).

Located in Fayetteville AR, he earned the B.S.E.E., B.S Physics, M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Arkansas (2003,2004,2007,2009)   He has authored or co-authored over 30 papers and contributed to two books in the area of mixed-signal and analog design and compact transistor modeling for integrated circuits; many for extreme environments such as space.   

He has led a number of successful commercial product developments (including models, hardware and software), and has led (PI) or contributed to (Area Expert or Co-PI) research programs with organizations such as NASA, JPL, DTRA, DARPA, DOE, NSF, the US Army and the USAF. 

In their spare time, Matt and his talented wife Lynn maintain a hobby farm in Elkins, AR, where they enjoy horse riding, making hay and the art of antique tractor repair.  Matt and Lynn are supporters of the Razorback Marching Band - where they met.
