Kevin G. Gard


  • 2010, Microwave Prize, Past Awardees**


Kevin G. Gard (S’92–M’95) received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, in 1994 and 1995, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California at San Diego, La Jolla, in 2003.

He is currently the William J. Pratt Assistant Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, North Carolina State University. From 1996 to 2003, he was with Qualcomm Inc., San Diego, CA, where he was a Staff Engineer and Manager responsible for the design and development of RF integrated circuits (RFICs) for code-division multiple-access (CDMA) wireless products. He has designed SiGe BiCMOS, Si BiCMOS, and GaAs metal–semiconductor field-effect transistor (MESFET) integrated circuits for cellular and personal communication systems (PCSs) CDMA, WCDMA, and AMPS transmitter applications. His research interests are in the areas of integrated circuit design for wireless applications and analysis of nonlinear microwave circuits with digitally modulated signals.

He has authored or coauthored over 60 papers related to RF/analog integrated circuit design and analysis of nonlinear circuits. Dr. Gard is a member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTT-S) and IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. He is a member of Eta Kappa Nu and Tau Beta Pi. In 2007, He was secretary of the IEEE MTT-S Administrative Committee (AdCom) in 2007.
