Prof. Gu is an assistant Professor since the 2014 Fall Quarter. He obtained his Ph.D. from University of Minnesota in 2008. He worked at Texas Instruments, Dallas, TX from 2007 to 2010 as a main researcher on the first 28nm ultra-low voltage DSP processor and a key designer on the next-generation power management technique for OMAP processor. He worked as a senior staff engineer from 2011 to 2014 in Maxlinear leading the development of low power broadband communication ICs.
Dr. Jie Gu has published numerious technical papers and several U.S patents on low power digital and mixed-signal design. He has served as conference program committee for Design Automation Conference (DAC), International Symposium on Low Power Electronics Design (ISLPED) and International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD).
1. Ultra-low power/voltage design for VLSI and mixed-signal ICs, e.g. energy harvester, medical device.
2. Emerging device modeling, design and integration.
3. Efficient power, clock management and communication for large-scale multi-core, multi-chip system or 3D ICs.
4. Highly scalable, digital-assisted RF IC design for low power communication system.
Dr. Gu is currently looking for students interested in VLSI and Mixed-signal IC design to join his group from 2015.
