Professor Henry Samueli will Speak His Dream to Connect Everything
On April 10, 2012, Professor Henry Samueli, Broadcom's Chief Technical Officer and Member of the Board of Directors, will once again face Engineering students to give a talk entitled, Connecting Everything: A Professor’s Dream Becomes Reality. The seminar will be at Engineering IV building, Shannon Conference Room 54-134, 3:00pm.
The seminar abstract: 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.
Professor Samueli, to which the school is named after, has been pursuing advance research programs in broadband communication circuits and digital signal processing for more than 30 years. Professor 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.Professor 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.
