Roc Berenguer works as a Senior RF Researcher in COMMIC (Communications IC Design group) in CEIT, Research Center, and Professor in the Electrical, Electronic and Control Engineering Department at TECNUN, the Technological Campus of the University of Navarra in San Sebastian, Spain. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from TECNUN, Spain, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. In 1999 he joined CEIT as an Associated Researcher. Through CEIT and INCIDE (Spin-off of the CEIT’s COMMIC group) he worked as an External Consultant for Siemens in Munich, Germany (2000), Hitachi Microsystems Europe in Maidenhead, UK (2001), Xignal Technologies in Munich, Germany (2001-02), and Seiko-Epson in Barcelona, Spain (2006-07) where he collaborated in the design of several RF front ends for wireless standards like GSM-EDGE, DAB, Wibree, and so forth. In 2009, Berenguer served as a Visiting Researcher in the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), Chicago, Ill, USA, where he worked on the design of a 77GHz Receiver front end in 65nm CMOS for a FM-CW Automotive Radar. Since then he also works as 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), Calif, USA, where he worked on the design of a Power Amplifier at 60GHz. His technical expertise and research interests include the areas of CMOS RF/mm-wave IC design, ultralow power analog circuit design for battery-less sensor nodes, and high-speed signal processing. He is the author or coauthor of more than 40 refereed publications in journals and conferences. He holds 7 patents and is a coauthor of the books Design and Test of High Quality Integrated Inductors for RF Applications in Conventional Technologies, Springer, and GPS and Galileo: Dual RF Front-End Receiver Design, Fabrication and Test, McGraw-Hill. Berenguer is an Assessor of the Spanish Agency of Evaluation and Prospective (ANEP) and a Member of IEEE.
