EE Conference Room 1312 S.W. Mudd
Hosted by: Columbia Integrated System Laboratory
Speaker: Dr. Mahbod Eyvazkhani, Nokia Research Center, Palo Alto, CA
With the availability of 7 GHz of unlicensed spectrum around 60 GHz, there is growing interest in using this resource for new consumer applications requiring very high data rate 2-10 Gb/s in wireless transmission. Systems communication design on 60 GHz has advantages and also some disadvantages. The challenges to meet appear not only on RF design but also on base band side. The different schemes on baseband architecture will be discussed considering their degree of complexity.
Mahbod Eyvazkhani has obtained his engineering diploma(M.Sc.), DEA and a PhD from Ecole Nationale superieure des Telecommunications (ENST-Paris) in France. He was employed at Bell-Labs (Lucent Technologies), Globespan and two other start-ups before joining Nokia. He is currently working on mmWave wireless communication project (60GHz) as a principal scientist at Nokia Research Center in Palo Alto. His main interests include equalization, channel coding and modulation on communication systems with emphasis on analog and VLSI implementation.
