Chief Technical Officer and Member of the Board of Directors Broadcom Corporation
As an Electrical Engineering faculty member at UCLA beginning in 1985, Dr. Samueli started a research program in broadband communications circuits. The success of this research program ultimately led to the founding of Broadcom Corporation in 1991. Broadcom’s corporate tag line is “Connecting everything” and when the company was founded, this vision was just a dream, but over the last 20 years, this dream has indeed become a reality. In this talk Dr. Samueli will give some historical perspective on how this dream became a reality by reviewing some industry trends, presenting some Broadcom technology innovations over the years, and discussing some future opportunities.
Dr. Henry Samueli is a Co-Founder of Broadcom Corporation and serves as Chief Technical Officer (CTO). In this role, he is responsible for driving the vision of Broadcom's research and development activities as well as helping to lead corporate-wide engineering development strategies.
Dr. Samueli has more than 30 years of experience in the fields of communications systems engineering and digital signal processing. Since co-founding Broadcom, he has also served as Chairman and Co-Chairman of the Board and Vice President of Research and Development.
Since 1985, Dr. Samueli has been a professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he has supervised advanced research programs in broadband communications circuits and digital signal processing, and he has published more than 100 technical papers in these areas. He has been on a leave of absence from UCLA since 1995. Dr. Samueli is also a Distinguished Adjunct Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Samueli was the Chief Scientist and one of the founders of PairGain Technologies, Inc., a telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the digital subscriber line (DSL) industry, and he consulted for PairGain from 1988 to 1994. From 1980 until 1985, Dr. Samueli was served in a variety of engineering management positions in the Electronics and Technology Division of TRW, Inc., where he was responsible for the development of military broadband communications systems.
Dr. Samueli received a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is a named inventor in 59 U.S. patents. In December 2011 the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) named Dr. Samueli as the winner of the Dr. Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award for his exceptional contributions to the semiconductor industry. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a Member of the National Academy of Engineering.
