Roc Berenguer is an associate professor in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department at TECNUN, the Technological Campus of the University of Navarra in San Sebastian, Spain. He is also a consultant RFIC engineer at Innophase Inc. (San Diego, USA).
He received his M.S. and PhD. degrees from TECNUN, Spain, in 1996 and 2000 respectively. From 1999 to 2015 he was with CEIT, first as a Senior Researcher until 2013 and as the Head of the Electronics and Communication Unit until 2015. Through CEIT and INCIDE (Spin-off of the CEIT's COMMIC group) he worked as an external consultant for Siemens in Munich (2000), Hitachi Microsystems Europe in Maidenhead (2001), Xignal Technologies in Munich (2001-02), Seiko-Epson in Barcelona (2006-07) and Innophase in Chicago (2012-14) where he collaborated in the design of several RF front-ends for wireless communication standards like GSM-EDGE, DAB, Wibree, etc.
He has transferred technology to two start-up companies: INCIDE S.A in 2000 (April 2014 INCIDE was acquired by IXYS and changed name to IXYS-San Sebastian) and FARSENS S.L in 2008.
In 2009, he was a visiting researcher in the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) where he worked on the design of a 77GHz Receiver front-end in 65nm CMOS for a FM-CW Automotive Radar. Since then he is also an affiliated researcher in the High Performance Integrated Circuits and Microsystems Lab. in IIT. During the summer semester 2010 he was a visiting scholar at the High Speed Electronics Lab. of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), where he worked on the design of a Power Amplifier at 60GHz. His technical expertise and research interests are in the areas of CMOS RF/mm-wave IC design, ultra-low power analog circuit design for battery-less sensor nodes and high-speed signal processing. He has collaborated in more than 20 research projects. These projects were funded by the European Union, the Spanish government, the local government (Basque Country) or directly subcontracted by companies.
He is author or co-author of more than 80 refereed publications in journals and conferences. He holds 18 patents national and international, and is co-author of the books "Design and test of high quality integrated inductors for RF applications in conventional technologies", Springer, "GPS and Galileo: Dual RF Front-end Receiver Design, Fabrication and Test", McGraw-Hill, "Linear CMOS RF Power Amplifiers", Springer and "Digitally Assisted, Fully Integrated, Wideband Transmitters for High-Speed Millimeter-Wave Wireless Communication Links", Springer. He is an assessor of the Spanish Agency of Evaluation and Prospective (ANEP). He is a senior member of IEEE. He served in the TPC of the IEEE European Solid State Circuit Conference, IEEE Midwest Symposium Circuits and Systems, the IEEE PhD Research in Microelectronics and Electronics, etc. He also served as a reviewer for several journals such as IEEE JSSC, IEEE MTT, IEEE TCAS I & II, etc.
