Room 56 Architecture (lower level)

With the wireless communications market expected to grow tenfold in the next five years, there is considerable interest in the design of cheap yet powerful wireless devices. Analog blocks are fast becoming key design bottlenecks in these systems. In this talk, Dr. Roychowdhury will outline some recent analytical and numerical techniques for problems arising in RF communication systems, including multitime PDE methods, mixing and phase noise analysis, and acromodelling algorithms.


Jaijeet Roychowdhury received a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (Kanpur) in 1987, and a Ph.D degree in EECS from the University of California (Berkeley) in 1993. From 1993 to 1995, he was the CAD Lab of AT&T's Bell Laboratories in Allentown, PA; from 1995-2000, with the Communication Sciences Research Division of Lucent's Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ; and from 2000-2001, with CeLight, Inc., an optical networking startup in Silver Spring, MD. Roychowdhury joined the ECE Department and the Digital Technology Center of the University of Minnesota in Fall 2001. His professional interests include the design and simulation of electronic and electro-optical systems.
