Dark (and Bright) Secrets of RF Design
August 25, 2014 5:00pm - 6:00pm

School of Microelectronics, Rm-369

Fudan University, Zhang-Jiang Campus
Host: Prof. Patrick Y. Chiang


RF design is a mystery to many engineers -- even to some who practice the art on a daily basis. It sometimes seems that a pointy hat and arcane incantations are needed to make oscillators oscillate and amplifiers amplify (and not vice-versa). Part of the mystery has to do with the many ways that ever-present parasitics undergo surprising impedance transformations, as well as the sometimes counterintuitive ways that nonlinear and time-varying processes can affect noise in amplifiers, oscillators and mixers. This talk will attempt to answer frequently-asked questions about these and other RF-related topics, including a collection of techniques for pushing performance to extremes of frequency. It is hoped that attendees will ask additional questions that they would like answered.

 

Prof. Tom Lee received his degrees from MIT, where he built the world's first CMOS radio in the late 1980s. He's been at Stanford since 1994, and recently completed a tour of duty as Director of the Microsystems Technology Office of DARPA. He is the 2011 recipient of the Ho-Am Prize in Engineering (informally known as "the Korean Nobel") for his RF CMOS work. He maintains an unhealthy interest in technology history, as evidenced by his collection of thousands of vacuum tubes, kilograms of early semiconductors, and over 100 classic oscilloscopes. In his spare time, he enjoys playing the violin as an effective means of pest control.
