Research Interests : Mixed Signal Circuit Design, 60 GHz radio,
Signal Processing, System modeling for analog circuit design
Research Interests : Sandeep D'Souza was born in Bombay, India. He received his B.Tech from IIT Bombay in 1995 and M.S. from Purdue University in 1997, both in
Electrical Engineering. Sandeep is currenly pursuing his Ph.D. in
Electrical Engineering at UCLA under the supervision of Professor M-C.
His current research interests include high speed analog and mixed
signal circuit design (such as design of DAC and continuous time
filters), 60 GHz radio, Signal Processing and System modeling for
analog circuit design.
From July 1997 to March 2005, he was a Senior Staff Engineer with
Conexant Systems Inc. in Newport Beach, CA working on Mixed Signal /
RF device modeling and Technology for communications IC design. From
June 2005 to September 2005, he was an advanced design intern with
Intel Corporation in Hillsboro, OR where he worked on mixed signal
circuit design for DDR3 I/O in 45nm CMOS. From January 2006 to March
2009, he was an RFIC Staff Design Engineer with Skyworks Solutions
Inc. in Irvine, CA where he worked on dual mode 3G WCDMA / EDGE
transceiver design. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
