Academic Adviser: Byunghoo Jung, Associate Professor

Byunghoo Jung received the B.S. degree from Yonsei University, Korea, in 1990, the M.S. degree from KAIST, Korea, in 1992, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, in 2005. From 1992 to 1999, he was with Samsung Electronics, Korea, where he was involved in the design of video signal driver circuits for flat panel displays. Following receipt of his PhD in January 2005, he was with Qualcomm in San Diego as a Senior RF IC Design Engineer until he joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University as an Assistant Professor in August 2005. He is currently an associate professor. His research interests include high-speed analog/RF circuit design for wireless communications and bio-telemetry systems. He is the first place winner of the 2002-2003 SRC SiGe BiCMOS Design Challenge  (as a lead designer) and the 2007-2008 SRC/SIA IC Design Challenge (as a lead faculty), and holds 10 US patents. He had served as a Co-Chair of the DAC/ISSCC Student Design Challenge (SDC) from 2006 to 2010, as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on VLSI from 2009 to 2011. He is serving as a member of the Analog Signal Processing Technical Program Committee (ASPTPC) in the IEEE Circuits and System Society since May 2006, and as a TPC member of the IEEE International Symposium on low power electronics and design since 2011.


Research Focus: RF/ Mixed-Signal/ Analog Circuits and Systems for Wireless Communications and Biomedical Applications
The JAG (Jung's Analog Group) group has been active for seven years at Purdue working in the area of RF/analog circuits and systems 
with the focus of wireless sensing, tracking, and healing. These projects have utilized the groups knowledge in RF circuits and systems to solve problems in many fields, from designing sensors for monitoring conditions of aircraft structural integrity, designing self-testing and healing CMOS circuits, developing a minimally invasive wireless tumor tracking technique for radiation therapy, and exploring new types antenna arrays including Distributed Beamforming, and now starting on insect based wireless monitoring in dangerous or hard to reach areas. To accomplish these goals JAG has utilized the unique opportunities Purdue presents by working with the other RF and communications research groups and having access to state-of-the-art facilities including the Birck Nanotechnology center.
