Description: Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit Design Description: Synthesizer Book

I published my first book with Calvin Plett entitled Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit Design.  It is published
by Artech House Publishers ( ).  It is currently in its second edition.
My second book was writen with Calvin Plett and Foster Dai. It is also published
by Artech House Publishers ( ).


Prospective Graduate Students :

There is currently a local company that wishes to support collaborative research. I am looking for a bright, motivated student who would like to pursue either a masters or PhD while working closely with a local high tech company.

Research Interests:

Radio Frequency integrated circuits; fractional-N frequency synthesizers; radio architectures; high frequency filter design.

IEEE Biography:

John W. M. Rogers (M95SM07) received the Ph.D. degree in 2002 in electrical engineering from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. Concurrent with his Ph.D. research he worked as part of a design team with SiGe Semiconductor that developed a cable modem IC for the DOCSIS standard.


From 2002 to 2004 he collaborated with Cognio Canada Ltd. doing research on MIMO RFICs for WLAN Applications. Since 2002 he has been a member of the faculty of engineering at Carleton University where he is now an associate professor. From 2007-2008 he was on sabbatical and working with Alereon Inc. developing ICs for UWB applications. He is the coauthor of Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit Design (Artech House, 2003) and Integrated Circuit Design for High Speed Frequency Synthesis (Artech House, 2006). His research interests are in the areas of RFIC and mixed-signal design for wireless applications.


Dr. Rogers was the recipient of an IBM faculty partnership award in 2004, and an IEEE Solid-State Circuits Predoctoral Fellowship in 2002. He holds five U.S. patents and is a member of the Professional Engineers of Ontario. He has been serving as a member of the technical program committee for the Custom Integrated Circuits Conference since 2006 and the BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting since 2008.
