Dissertation Talk: Design of Integrated Spectral Filtering Wireless Transmitters

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 16 | 2108 Allston Way (Berkeley Wireless Research Center), Rabaey Room

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

A frequency-flexible radio-frequency (RF) front end has long been desired, but faces a myriad of obstacles to its realization. In recent years, the use of switching power amplifiers (PA) as part of “digital” PAs and RF Digital-to-Analog Convers (RFDAC) has become more common. The primary motivation of these RFDACs is to directly convert from digital baseband bits to RF output. This is useful in...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Design Techniques for Energy-Efficient, Low Latency High-Speed Wireline Links

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: EE | May 16 | 8-9 a.m. | 2108 Allston Way (Berkeley Wireless Research Center), Rabaey Room

Various receive side SerDes techniques including an integrating CTLE, FFE and DFE are demonstrated in a 60Gb/s NRZ transceiver consuming 288 mW & occupying 2.48mm2. To support burst mode, a 2-tap SC FFE transmitter w/ a rapid-ON/OFF VCO is presented that allows for the lowest achievable latency for a 64:1 1-latch SER, achieving 1.2ns startup time and 0.72-0.62 pJ/bit at 1-20Gb/s occupying 0.19mm2.

In today's world, the storage and management of information is highly centralized in data-centers. Such a data-center oriented view of infrastructure also shapes the way we think about information security; the de-facto mechanism for security is to draw a perimeter around the infrastructure and protect such perimeter. However, the future is very different. With the advancement of technology,...   More >

Dissertation Talk: Directional Wireless Network Design

Presentation: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 16 | 3:30-4:30 p.m. |  2108 Allston Way (Berkeley Wireless Research Center)

 James C. Martin

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In recent years, there has been a trend of increasing capacity and carrier frequency in wireless networks design. This talk will cover some of the insights that happen when constructing large mesh networks using directional antenna arrays at mmWave.
