Venu joined UW and the FAST Lab in September 2009. At the university he has been involved in a variety of projects ranging from the design of wideband mm-wave (20-35GHz) CMOS circuits for imaging/data-communication applications to radio frequency (2GHz) CMOS power amplifier for sensor applications. He is currently exploring circuit topologies and architectures that will enable short-range wireless communication links supporting bandwidths of the order 30-40Gb/s. He received his undergraduate degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the University of Delhi and Masters degree the Indian Institute of Science in 2005 and 2007 respectively. After graduation he spent two years working at a semiconductor start-up, Cosmic Circuits, in Bangalore. Prior to coming to the university, Venu was designing low frequency audio band sigma-delta converters. In 2010, Venu completed a six month internship at Broadcom Corporation where he worked on mm-wave CMOS circuits.
