Brian Floyd

I am a Professor at NC State University in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.  I lead a research program in the areas of RF and millimeter-wave circuits and systems, organized as the iNtegrated Circuits and Systems lab at NCState (iNcs2). I also teach graduate classes in analog, radio-frequency, and millimeter-wave integrated circuit design.

My research interests lie in the general areas of RF and millimeter-wave (mmWave) circuits and systems for wireless communications, imaging, and radar applications. Specific research topics include multi-Gb/s silicon phased-array transceivers, N-path filtering techniques, extreme wideband wireless architectures, mmWave imagers, low-cost radar, multi-function RF arrays, adaptive transceivers, and test and calibration of phased arrays.

Job Openings

I am recruiting new Ph.D. students for Fall 2023. In your application, please emphasize any prior experience in integrated circuits or electronics as well as your reasons for wanting to pursue a doctoral degree. Strong applicants would also demonstrate familiarity with my group’s recent publications and ideas on how to advance beyond these into new research projects.
