Dr Didier Belot received the M.S degree from the “Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Electronique et de Radioelectricite de Grenoble”, Grenoble France in 1991, and the HDR diploma “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” from the University of Bordeaux, France, in 2013.

In 1983, he joined the Bipolar Device Characterization and Modelisation group, Thomson Semiconductor where he developed models for bipolar transistors. In 1986, he joined Thomson “Etude et Fabrication de Circuits Integres Speciaux”, where he was involved with digital CMOS design using “see of gate” approach. In 1988, he was involved with the design of high speed ECL/CML data communication ICs at STMicroelectronics developing 155Mbs and 622Mbs Optic/Electronics interfaces and line terminators for ATM standard. In 1996 he moves to the Radio Frequency design developing an integrated RF Front End solution for GSM-DCS. From 1999 to 2005 he managed an RF-Analog design group which has developed WPAN, 2G, 2.5G and 3G transceivers in BiCMOS and CMOS processes, then in 2006, he decided to more orient his career to Research, and took the management of the Minatec Advanced R&D Analog RF team which has developed new solutions, (main results: 60GHz CMOS transceiver; 79GHz SiGe transceiver) for early RF and mmW standards, for STMicroelectronics, Crolles & Minatec Grenoble, France. Since 2014, he is with CEA-LETI, Grenoble, France, and works as European Programs Coordinator of the Design and embedded software Division, in charge of the roadmap orientation and Programs management. His research present interests are the mmW propagation through plastic, and the III-V devices on Silicon for mmW applications. He is member of the French National Scientific Council for Micro and Nanotechnology field, and MTT-7 TC, and was member of different conferences program comities as RFIC, EuMW, ESSCIRC and ISSCC. He is reviewer for IEEE MTT, SSC journals and author or co-author of about 200 publications and 70 patents.
