  • Biography

    Patrick Chiang received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering and computer sciences from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1998, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 2001 and 2007. He is currently a tenured associate professor (on unpaid leave-of-absence) from Oregon State University. He is currently on sabbatical as a 1000-talent young foreign expert professor, at the State ASIC & Key Laboratory at Fudan University (Shanghai, China). He is also a co-founder of PhotonIC Technologies (Shanghai), a fabless IC startup in stealth-mode.

    As an undergraduate at Berkeley, he worked on the Dynamic-Voltage Scaled Microprocessor System for the Infopad project. In 1998, he was a design engineer at Datapath Systems (now LSI), where he worked on an automated generation of a low-power, digital standard cell library for a xDSL analog front-end. In 2003 he was a research intern at Velio Communications (now Rambus) investigating low-jitter, 10GHz clock synthesis techniques. In 2004, he worked as a consultant at Telegent Systems (now Spreadtrum), where he analyzed low-phase noise VCOs for analog, mobile TV tuners. In 2006 he was a visiting NSF research fellow at Tsinghua University, China, investigating low power, low voltage RF transceivers. In 2007, he was a visiting professor at the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing, China), where he collaborated with ICT on high-speed, low-power serial link transceivers. He previously was a visiting professor at Fudan University, Shanghai, China, developing short-range UWB transceivers for biomedical sensors.

    He is the recipient of a 2009 SRC-CDADIC Best Faculty Project Award, a 2010 Department of Energy Early CAREER Award: "Sustainable Silicon -- Energy-Efficient VLSI Interconnect for Extreme-Scaling Computing", and a 2012 NSF-CAREER Award: "Analog-Assisted Sensing and Repair for Achieving Robust Near-Threshold Computing." He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, and on the technical program committee for the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference.
