He received the Bachelor's degree in engineering from Calvin College in 1987, a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering in 1989 from the University of Arizona, and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1995. His research interests include the test and verification of integrated, heterogeneous systems. His patent-pending work on fault tuples has impacted the way test and diagnosis of next-generation ICs is performed and several companies are incorporating fault tuples into their test methodologies. Prof. Blanton has received the National Science Foundation Career Award for the development of a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) testing methodology. He has worked with several companies in the area of MEMS test and has a patent pending for MEMS built-in self test (BIST).
