About the Event

Due to the increase of wireless standards using different RF frequencies there is a need to have transceivers that can handle a wide range of RF frequencies. By abandoning the classical narrowband approach, new receiver architectures are explored in which noise and interferer robustness problems have to be solved. At the same time new features are wanted such as spectrum sensing for cognitive radio and selfinterference cancelling for future full duplex communication. In this presentation several circuit and system techniques will be illustrated that may enable future radio systems.


Bram Nauta was born in Hengelo, The Netherlands. In 1987, he received the MSc degree (cum laude) in electrical engineering from the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. In 1991, he received the PhD degree from the same university and joined Philips Research, Eindhoven the Netherlands. In 1998, he returned to the University of Twente, where he is currently a distinguished professor, heading the IC Design group. He served as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits and as program chair of the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). Since 2016, he is the Vice President of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society.
