GWC 302B

Research expertise
RF and mixed-signal IC design, integrated power management circuits for high reliability applications, low noise biomedical and chemical instrumentation ICs.

Bertan Bakkaloglu joined the Arizona State University faculty in August 2004. He received a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering in 1995 from Oregon State University. Prior to ASU, Professor Bakkaloglu was with Texas Instruments where he was responsible for analog, mixed signal, and RF system-on-chip development for wireless and wireline communication transceivers. He is a steering committee member for IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Conference, IEEE Circuits and Systems for Medical and Environmental Applications Workshop, and founding chair of the IEEE Solid State Circuits Society Phoenix Chapter. He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques.
