Description
Talk Title: Hybrid PLL architectures and implementations
Bio: Daniel J. Friedman (S’91—M’92) received the Ph.D. degree in engineering science from Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, in 1992. After completing consulting work at MIT Lincoln Labs and postdoctoral work at Harvard in image sensor design, he joined the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, in 1994.  His initial work at IBM was the design of analog circuits and air interface protocols for field-powered RFID tags. In 1999, he joined the mixed-signal communications IC design group and turned his attention to analog circuit design for high-speed serializer/deserializer macros. He managed the mixed-signal team from 2000-2009, focusing efforts on serial data communication and clock synthesis applications. In 2009, he became senior manager of the communication circuits and systems group, adding responsibility for teams in millimeter-wave wireless and digital communications IC design. He has authored or co-authored more than 50 technical papers in circuit topics including serial links, PLLs, RFID, and imagers. He was a co-recipient of the Beatrice Winner Award for Editorial Excellence at the 2009 ISSCC and the 2009 JSSC Best Paper Award given in 2011; he holds more than 50 patents. He was a member of the ISSCC international technical program committee from ISSCC 2009 through ISSCC 2016; he served as the Wireline sub-committee chair from ISSCC 2012 through ISSCC 2016 and served as the Short Course Chair for ISSCC 2017. His current research interests include high-speed I/O design, PLL design, mmWave circuits and systems, and circuit/system approaches to enabling new computing paradigms.
