Brian Floyd

Dr. Floyd joined NC State in January 2010. His research interests include RF and millimeter-wave circuits and systems for wireless communications, imaging, and radar applications. Specific research topics include multi-Gb/s wireless transceivers, mmWave passive and active imagers, silicon phased-array transceivers, 3-D RF, digitally assisted/digitally-replaced RF systems, and manufacturable antenna-in-package approaches.

Prior to 2010, Dr. Floyd worked at IBM Research in Yorktown Heights, NY as a research staff member (2001-2007) and as the manager of the RF and wireless circuits and systems group (2007-2009). His work at IBM included the demonstration of some of the world's first 60-GHz transceivers in silicon and the development of 60-GHz phased-array transceivers, antennas, and packages.
