Li Lin

Li Lin received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in 1996 and 2000, respectively. Her Ph.D. thesis focused on integrated frequency synthesizer for multi-standard CMOS RF transceiver. She worked at Broadcom Corporation from 1999 to 2002 as a staff scientist, developing RF integrated circuits including LNA, Mixer, PA, PA driver, and RF VGA for WLAN applications. From 2002 to 2005, she worked at Berkana Wireless Inc. (later acquired by Qualcomm Inc.) as a design manager and led a team to develop multi-mode radio transceivers for cellular applications, including GSM, Edge, CDMA and WCDMA. From 2005 to 2016, Dr. Lin was with Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. Her last post was the Vice President of Engineering, Wireless Technologies Department of ~900 employees across 11 countries, responsible for the revenue of ~$500 million. The wireless group  develops the wireless systems for high performance/high data rate/long range applications such as cellular/LTE, WLAN, BT, GPS; and for lower power/low data rate/short range applications such as Zigbee /subG in smart energy and home automation. Since 2012, Dr. Lin serves as steering committee member at IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit Symposium, in charge of publicity, work shop, publication.  She is elected as the General Chair for the RFIC 2021. She is a member of IEEE RFIC Symposium Technical Program Committee since 2011 and a member of IEEE International Solid State Circuit Conference (ISSCC) Technical Program Committee since 2013. Dr. Lin has over 17 publications in ISSCC, RFIC, VLSI, and JSSC and holds more than 50 patents in integrated circuit and system.
