High-power and Energy-Efficient Millimeter-wave Circuits and Systems for Next Generation Wireless
on October 31, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
There has been a renewed interest in millimeter-waves in the recent past for next-generation (5G) wireless communication networks. While millimeter-wave silicon systems-on-chip (SoCs) are a mature technology, there are several open challenges, including the generation of high output power to close link budgets over distances exceeding 100s of meters, and the implementation of energy-efficient millimeter-wave systems. This talk will cover recent research on stacked millimeter-wave CMOS power amplifiers with high efficiencies, watt-class millimeter-wave CMOS PAs, highly digital millimeter-wave transmitters, and large-scale millimeter-wave arrays. Finally, this talk will contemplate advanced wireless communication paradigms at millimeter-waves, including massive MIMO.
Harish Krishnaswamy received the B.Tech. degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India, in 2001, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA, USA, in 2003 and 2009, respectively. In 2009, he joined the Electrical Engineering Department, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA, where he is currently an Associate Professor. His research interests broadly span integrated devices, circuits, and systems for a variety of RF, mmWave. sub-mmWave and opto-electronic applications. Recent research topics include breaking Lorentz reciprocity and related applications, full-duplex wireless, high-power and energy-efficient millimeter-wave circuits and systems in silicon, broadband/reconfigurable RF radios with an emphasis on interference mitigation, and terahertz circuits in CMOS. Dr. Krishnaswamy serves as a member of the Technical Program Committee (TPC) of several conferences, including the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (2015/16-present) and IEEE RFIC Symposium (2013-present). He was the recipient of the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) Lewis Winner Award for Outstanding Paper in 2007, the Best Thesis in Experimental Research Award from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering in 2009, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award in 2011, a 2014 IBM Faculty Award and the 2015 IEEE RFIC Symposium Best Student Paper Award - 1st Place.
