Prof. Franklin Bien, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, Korea

Prof. Franklin Bien received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology at Atlanta, GA in 2000 and 2006 respectively. Dr. Bien’s heritage roots from Dr. Joy Laskar. This also means Dr. Bien’s heritage roots from a Nobel laureate and the father of ‘transistor’, Dr. John Bardeen as you can see from the ‘People’ tab. Prior to joining UNIST in 2009, Dr. Franklin Bien was with Staccato Communications, San Diego, CA as a Senior IC Design Engineer working on analog/mixed-signal IC and RF front-end blocks for Ultra-Wideband (UWB) products such as Wireless-USB. Before working at Staccato, Dr. Bien was with Agilent Technologies and Quellan Inc., developing transceiver ICs for enterprise segments that improve the speed and reach of communication channels in consumer, broadcast, enterprise and computing markets. In the early stage of his career including the Ph.D. work, Dr. Bien’s research interests included signal integrity improvement with alternate modulation schemes, cross-talk noise cancellation, and equalization techniques for 10+Gb/sec broadband communication applications. Dr. Bien’s research and design experiences includes CMOS RF front-end circuits for UWB wireless communications, adaptive circuits for wireless power transfer (WPT) applications, and electronics design for future automobiles and electric vehicles.
