Biography

Dr. Nguyen Viet Tu obtained his MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, San Diego in 2009 and 2013, respectively. He has been a Sr. R&D IC Design Researcher for Broadband Carrier Access (BCA) group at Broadcom Limited since May 2013. The work includes designing and developing the current and next generations of Wireless LAN networks: from algorithm designs to design vectors (DV) matching, chipset bring up, firmware development, and performance evaluations prior to mass productions.
