Sayfe Kiaei Colloquium Abstract (April 13, 2016)

Challenges in RF Integrated Circuits

The first part of this presentation will give a brief overview of my research on Radio Frequency Integrated Transceiver Circuits. The presentation will focus on the challenges for integrated wireless transceivers for bio-medical applications, STAR (simultaneous transmit and receive ), and supply modulated transceivers.


Dr. Sayfe Kiaei is has been with ASU since January 2001.  He is a Professor and the Director of the Connection One Center (NSF I/UCRC Center), and Motorola Chair in Analog and RF Integrated Circuits.  From 1993 to 2001, he was a Senior Member of Technical Staff with the Wireless Technology Center and Broadband Operations at Motorola where he was responsible for the development of RF & Transceiver Integrated Circuits, GPS RF IC, and Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) transceivers.  Before joining Motorola, Dr. Kiaei was a Professor at Oregon State University from 1987-1993 where he taught courses and performed research in digital communications, VLSI system design, advanced CMOS IC design, and wireless systems. Dr. has published more than 200 journal and conference papers and holds several patents. Dr. Kiaei is an IEEE Fellow and a member of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, IEEE Solid State Circuits Society, and IEEE Communication Society. Dr. Kiaei has been organizer, on the technical program committee and/or chair of many conferences, including: RFIC, MTT, ISCAS, and other international conferences.
