Vecchi, Federico

Ph.D. 2010

He (S’07) was born in Broni, Italy, in 1982. He received B.S. and M.S. degrees in electronics engineering from the University of Pavia, Italy, in 2004 and 2006, respectively.

In 2006 he joined the Department of Electronics, University of Pavia, as a Ph.D. student in Microelectronics; he holded a research grant on RFICs Design topics from IUSS – Institute for Advanced Studies – Pavia. In 2007 he spent a period at the BWRC Berkeley, CA, for the characterization of integrated CMOS devices for millimeter-wave applications. His research interests included design and modeling techniques of analog components for millimeter-wave and RF applications on sub-μm CMOS technologies.
