"Design Challenges of Next-Generation Wireless Communication SoCs"
The availability of unlicensed bands and low-cost CMOS technology have dramatically changed the landscape of broadband wireless communication in the past few years. The newly established high-performance, low-cost wireless LAN technology has the potential to provide wide-area wireless connectivity at speeds orders of magnitude higher than the current system and a fraction of its cost. To accommodate the ever increasing data rates, communication SoC (system-on-chip) design is no longer merely a circuit integration problem. The implementation of high-throughput wireless communication SoCs with a power constraint requires a new design strategy for the embedded analog components. One solution is to exploit the computational capability of digital circuitry to continuously calibrate the mixed-signal and analog circuits to compensate for their ever more tenuous realization as technology is scaled and supply voltages are reduced. In this talk, state-of-the-art developments of the wireless LAN technology and its design challenges will be discussed, along with the opportunities for future innovations.

Teresa H. Meng
Teresa H. Meng is the "Reid Weaver Dennis Professor" of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. Her research activities during the first 10 years at Stanford included low-power circuit and system design, video signal processing, and wireless communications. She has received many awards and honors for her research work at Stanford: an NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award, an ONR Young Investigator Award, an IBM Faculty Development Award, a Best Paper Award and a Distinguished Lecturer Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society, the Eli Jury Award from U.C. Berkeley, and awards from AT&T, Okawa Foundation and other industry and academic organizations.

In 1999, Dr. Meng took leave from Stanford and founded Atheros Communications, Inc., which provides leading wireless system solutions for transparent connections of data, video, and voice communications. As a result of this effort, Dr. Meng was named one of the Top 10 Entrepreneurs in 2001 by Red Herring, Innovator of the Year in 2002 by MIT Sloan School eBA, the CIO 20/20 Vision Award in 2002, and the DEMO@15 World-Class Innovator Award in 2005. She returned to Stanford in 2000 to continue her research and teaching at the University.

Dr. Meng's current research interests focus on circuit optimization, neural signal processing, and computation architectures for future scaled CMOS technology. She has given plenary talks at major conferences in the areas of signal processing and wireless communications. She is the author of one book, several book chapters, and over 200 technical articles in journals and conferences. Dr. Meng is a Fellow of the IEEE. She received her Ph.D. in EECS from the University of California at Berkeley in 1988.
