Hyun Boo, Ph.D.

Co-founder and Sr. Director of Product Mgmt.

Dr. Hyun H. Boo received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007, the S.M. degree and Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, in 2009 and 2015, respectively. At MIT he was involved in research work on energy-efficient high-resolution and high-speed analog-to-digital converters, as well as power amplifier linearization using digital pre-distortion and cartesian feedback. 

From 2009 to 2012, Dr. Boo worked at the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), South Korea, as a research engineer. His work at ETRI was in the implementation of Digital-RF broadband transmitter integrated circuits for LTE wireless communication application. The work led to a successful technology transfer to a fabless semiconductor chip design company in South Korea. 

His research focus during his Ph.D. program at MIT was on energy-efficient design of high-resolution and high-speed analog-to-digital (ADC) design and high performance operational amplifier based switched capacitor circuits. His interest spans multiple areas of analog and RF integrated circuit design.
