Improving RF Transmitter Energy Efficiency for Future Generation
Wireless Systems

Larry Larson

Chair and Professor

Department of ECE

University of California, San Diego



Future wireless devices will require dramatic improvements in bandwidth,
tuning range and efficiency to meet the demanding goals of
4th-generation wireless networks. These improvements will require
innovations in device technology, circuit design, and improved system
concepts at both the base station and mobile terminal level. This talk
will outline the research at the UCSD Center for Wireless Communications
focused on improved transmitter design for next generation wireless


Larry Larson was at Hughes Research Laboratories in Malibu, Calif. from
1980-1996, where he developed high-frequency microelectronics in GaAs,
InP and Si/SiGe and MEMS technologies.  He joined the faculty at UC San
Diego in 1996, where he is the inaugural holder of the Communications
Industry Chair. He was director of the UCSD Center for Wireless
Communications from 2001-2006. Currently, he is chair of the Department
of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  He has published more than 300
papers, has received 36 U.S. patents, has co-authored three books, and
is a Fellow of the IEEE.
