Talal Al-Attar, Ph.D.
Dr. Talal Al-Attar has over 10 years in teaching experience in Electrical Engineering between Kuwait University, Stanford University and Santa Clara University. He received the B.S., M.S. from Kuwait University and his Ph.D degree from Stanford University. His doctoral work focused on IMPATT modeling at millimeter-wave range, on-chip integration of microstrip patch antennas and transmission lines in standard CMOS Technology.
He worked as a senior design and device engineer at Volterra Semiconductor [2004 - 2007], and a senior member of consulting staff at Sabio Labs . Dr. Al-Attar joined Magma Design Automation in 2008 when it acquired Sabio Labs. He joined SCU in 2006 as an adjunct professor, then lecturer, and finally as a full-time assistant professor.
His primary research interests includes IMPATT Modeling and scaling in Standard CMOS Technology, Analog design optimization, Microstrip Patch Antenna on-chip for 60GHz and 77GHz applications, Data Converters, LDMOS modeling for RF applications, and UWB measurements.
Dr. Al-Attar contributed to two books in CMOS RFIC and Planar Microwave Engineering. He currently serves on the committees of Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS) as a student paper competition chair, and he is a member of the IEEE and the ASEE.
