Design and Productization of Highly-Integrated Low-Cost Mixed-Signal SoCs
This course covers many of the challenges associated with the design of RF transceivers in advanced CMOS processes and their integration with the digital and power-management functions that are typically found in today’s highly complex system-on-chip (SoC) products targeting the consumer market. An overview of extensively digital architectures that have been developed in recent years is presented and references are provided for specific related topics, such as digital transmitters and receivers, design methodologies and modeling, and power management considerations.

Who Should Attend
Instructor's Profile: Dr. Oren Eliezer
Dr. Oren Eliezer received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Tel-Aviv University in Israel in 1988 and 1996 respectively, majoring in communication theory and communication system design. He received his PhD from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2008, majoring in microelectronics. He started his engineering career in wireless communications in the Israeli military in 1988, designing and deploying sophisticated wireless communication systems. In 1994 he confounded the startup Butterfly, focusing on low-cost consumer-market wireless solutions, and served as its chief engineer. He joined Texas Instruments (TI) in 1999, with their acquisition of Butterfly, was relocated to Dallas in 2002, and became a senior member of the technical staff in the Wireless Terminals Business Unit of TI, where he was a key member of the team that revolutionized wireless transceiver integration in digital CMOS processes, with the introduction of TI’s Digital-RF-Processor (DRPTM) technology. He has extensive experience in radio architecture, software-defined radios, interference and coexistence issues, and radio testing and manufacturability. In particular, he has specialized in built-in testing, characterization, compensation and calibration techniques, and has published extensively in these fields. He has authored and coauthored over 30 patents and over 30 conference and journal papers, and has given over 20 invited talks and seminars. He is currently the CTO at Xtendwave, a Dallas based startup specializing in extending the reach and the data throughput of digital communication systems, and is also involved in the research of low-cost mm-wave applications at the Texas Analog Center of Excellence (TxACE) at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD).
