He began his formal career as a member of the technical staff at Bell Laboratories, and later served as an advisory engineer at IBM. Mr. Black also worked at National Semiconductor and at Sun Microsystems. Before retiring, he distinguished himself as the manager of the Discrete Applications Department for the Fairchild Semiconductor.
Taking much pride in his work, Mr. Black was particularly gratified to work on behalf of Sun Microsystems during the peak of the early internet boom, and managed a group responsible for two thirds of the company's power supply development. While working at Fairchild Semiconductor he was instrumental in developing a key power chip for the PlayStation 3. Many of the products Mr. Black worked on throughout the years were shipped on a global scale.
As a dedicated professional, Mr. Black holds three patents in his field. As a respected voice, he previously served as a panelist at the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition and the High Frequency Power Conversion Conference. He was also a guest lecturer in analog circuit design at Ulster County Community College and an invited reviewer for APEC papers. In addition, Mr. Black has authored numerous papers which were delivered at internal IBM tech conference and at the iMAPS2013, PESC2007 and PCIM2006 conferences.
Mr. Black has maintained his affiliation with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu.
