Mohammad Madihian has been an Adjunct Professor at Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, since 2003, teaching Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Course.
He joined NEC Central Research Laboratories, Kawasaki, Japan, in 1983 where he worked on GaAs and Silicon device-based digital as well as microwave and millimeter-wave monolithic IC’s. In 1999, he moved to NEC Laboratories America, Inc., Princeton, New Jersey, and served as the Chief Patent Officer and Department Head where he conducted analog/RF front-end IC and baseband processing research activities for single/multi-mode high-speed wireless networks and personal communications applications. He was awarded the IEEE Microwave Prize in 1988 for a research work titled ”GaAs-monolithic IC’s for X-band PLL stabilized local source” which appeared in the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques in June 1986. He received the IEEE Fellow Award in 1998 for his contributions to the design and development of microwave as well as millimeter-wave solid state monolithic integrated circuits for personal computing and wireless networking systems. He served as Guest Editor to the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, Japan IEICE Transactions on Electronics, and IEEE Transactions on MTT.
