Event Details


Modern commercial and military wireless systems should support various waveforms and standards under dynamically changing electromagnetic environments. A straight forward Software-Defined Radio (SDR) enables changing the radio parameters, such as carrier frequency, modulation format, and signal bandwidth, in a fixed architecture, through software. A more advanced reconfigurable radio enables changing the architecture of the transceiver and/or the individual building blocks in order to optimize the performance while minimizing the power consumption. Architectural level reconfigurability reduce the Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) cost associated with the design of a new transceiver tailored to a specific application. Moreover, dynamic adjustment of radio architecture and specifications can be in response to, for instance, varying signal to noise ratio levels, locations and powers of interference and jamming signals, etc. This talk covers several examples of reconfigurable radio-frequency transceivers implemented in CMOS technology.


Eventbrite registration is mandatory for everyone to attend the talk.

Hossein joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California as an Assistant Professor in 2003, where he was the holder of Gordon S. Marshall Early Career Chair of Electrical Engineering from 2007-09.  He was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and systems—Part I: Regular Papers (2006–2007) and an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and systems—Part II: Express Briefs (2004–2005). 
Hossein was the recipient of the 2000 Outstanding Accomplishment Award presented by the von Brimer Foundation, the 2001 Outstanding Student Designer Award presented by Analog Devices, a 2002 Intel Fellowship, the 2003 Young Scholar Award presented by the Association of Professors and Scholars of Iranian Heritage, the 2008 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award, the 2008 USC Viterbi School of Engineering Junior Faculty Research Award, and an NSF CAREER Award in 2009.  He was the co-recipient of the 2004 IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits Best Paper Award and the 2007 Lewis Winner Award for Outstanding Paper presented at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).
