Scientific Expertise and Current Research Activities:
Wei-Zen Chen received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degree in electronics engineering from National Chiao-Tung University, Hsin-Chu, Taiwan, in 1992, 1994, and 1999, respectively.
He was with ITRI/ERSO in 1999 involved in the development of CMOS RF ICs for cellular and wireless LAN applications. From 1999-2002, he was an assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Central University, Chung-Li, Taiwan. Since 2002, he joined the Department of Electronics Engineering, National Chiao-Tung University, where he is now a full Professor. He was the secretary of mixed-signal design (MSD) consortium sponsored by Ministry of Education from 2002-2005, coordinating international short courses and lectures development for the improvement of domestic university education. From 2006-2008, he served as the deputy director of Industrial Technology R&D Master Program of electrical and computer engineering college at National Chiao Tung university. He was the deputy executive director of National SoC Program in Taiwan from 2009-2011, whose mission is to coordinate efforts from private and public sectors to create new IC industries and build Taiwan into a global SoC design and service center. He also served as IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society Taipei Chapter chairman from 2009-2012, executive director of Taiwan Engineering, Medicine, Biology Association (TWEMBA) from 2011-2014. He is currently the principal investigator of 4C program under National Project on Intelligent Electronics (NPIE), Taiwan.
Dr. Chen’s research focuses on mixed-signal integrated circuit for wireline and wireless communication systems, with special emphasis on serdes, high speed interface, optical communication, wireless PAN, LAN, and body area network applications. He was the technical program committee vice chair of 2008 VLSI/CAD design symposium, secretary general of 2011 SEMBA (Symposium on Engineering, Medicine, and Biology Application), technical program committee chair of 2012 SEMBA, and guest editor of International Journal of Electrical Engineering (IJEE). He is a member of Phi-Tau-Phi honorary scholar society, and served as technical program committee member of IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC), IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuit Conference (A-SSCC), IEEE ASICON, and IEEE RFIT.
