Dear Member of the IEEE Communications and/or Microwave Theory and
Techniques Society in Austria!
It is a pleasure to invite you to the talk of Prof. Patrick Reynaert, Associate Professor at the University of Leuven with the title:
"mm-Wave Circuit Design in Nanometer CMOS"
Date: Tuesday, 9th September 2014 at 11:00 hrs
Location: Seminar Room HF01092, Graz University of Technology, Inffeldgasse 12, first floor
For further details see below. Please forward this invitation to colleagues and friends. Hope to see you all there!
Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Wolfgang Bösch
Abstract: This talk will present some of the recent research results on mm-wave IC design in nanometer CMOS technologies at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven), Belgium. It will cover a frequency range from 60GHz up to 500GHz. Starting from the basic challenges that occur at mm-wave frequencies, the talk will discuss in more detail some of the different architectures and circuit techniques that make it possible to integrate mm-wave systems into CMOS technologies. The focus will be on wireless communication at 60GHz and 85GHz as well as some short-distance imaging examples that were achieved with a 500GHz CMOS oscillator.
Biography: Patrick Reynaert received the Ph.D. in Engineering Science (dr.) from the
University of Leuven (KU Leuven), Belgium in 2006. During 2006-2007, he was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of California at Berkeley. During the summer of 2007, he was a visiting researcher at Infineon, Villach, Austria. Since October 2007, he is an Associate Professor at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven). His main research interests include mm-wave and THz CMOS circuit design, high-speed circuits and RF power amplifiers. Patrick Reynaert is a Senior Member of the IEEE and chair of the IEEE SSCS Benelux Chapter. He serves or has served on the technical program committees of several international conferences including the ISSCC-SRP, IEDM, ESSCIRC and PRIME. He has served as Associate Editor for Transactions on Circuits and Systems - I, and as Guest Editor for the Journal of Solid-State Circuits. He received the 2011 TSMC-Europractice Innovation Award and the ESSCIRC-2011 Best Paper award.
