Prof. Gu is an Adjunct Professor for the 2014 Fall Quarter and will be appointed as an Assistant Professor starting in January 2015. Previously, Prof. Gu was working as a senior staff engineer in Maxlinear, Inc., leading the development of broadband mixed-signal communication ICs. He obtained his Ph.D. from University of Minnesota in 2008. He worked at Texas Instruments, Dallas, TX from 2007 to 2010 as an IC design engineer. While at TI, he worked as a key designer in the development of next-generation power management technique for OMAP processor and the design of the first 28nm ultra-low voltage DSP processor for mobile application.
Dr. Jie Gu has published more than 30 technical papers, held 5 U.S patents, and received best paper nomination in Design Automation Conference (DAC) as well as top 20 download in the journal of Transaction on VLSI System (TVLSI). He has served as conference program committee for International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD) 2009-2010 and International Symposium on Low Power Electronics Design (ISLPED) 2010-2014.
