Dr. Chen (SM’13) is the Director of RF/Millimeter-Wave IC Engineering at Peraso, San Jose, CA, where he oversees and leads the product development of 5G FR2 and WiGig phased-array transceiver chipsets and modules for fixed wireless applications. Prior to joining Peraso, Dr. Chen has held technical leadership and management positions in various companies, including Skyworks Solutions, Nokia Networks, and SiBEAM/Lattice Semiconductors where he developed RF front-end ICs/modules for 3G WCDMA and 4G LTE UEs, 5G NR infrastructures, and millimeter-wave phased-array transceiver SoCs for 5G fixed wireless access and WiGig (IEEE 802.11ad/ay) using bulk CMOS, SOI CMOS, SiGe BiCMOS, and GaAs BiHEMT technologies. He was also a researcher with the High-Speed Electronics and Opto-Electronics Research Department, Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent, Murray Hill, NJ, where he was involved in the design of RF/millimeter-wave/sub-THz integrated circuits and systems using SiGe BiCMOS and InP HBT technologies. Dr. Chen received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, in 2010.
Since 2011, Dr. Chen has been serving as an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, California State University, Northridge, where he is also a member of the Industry Advisory Board (IAB) for the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Dr. Chen is also an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, California State University, Fullerton and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Santa Cruz, where he teaches courses in the areas of analog/RF/millimeter-wave IC design, wireless communications, and engineering electromagnetics.
Dr. Chen is a Technical Program Committee (TPC) member of multiple IEEE conferences, including the International Microwave Symposium (IMS), Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems (SiRF), and International Wireless Symposium (IWS). Dr. Chen is a professional referee for various IEEE-sponsored journals and he serves as a panel reviewer at the National Science Foundation (NSF).
