Shouli Yan

Assistant Professor

Biography

Shouli Yan is an assistant professor at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, The University of Texas at Austin. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2002. His doctoral research, baseband continuous-time sigma-delta A/D conversion with 1.1 MHz bandwidth and 88 dB dynamic range, extended the bandwidth of high resolution (> 85 dB dynamic range) continuous-time sigma-delta modulators by 11 times. In 1999 he interned at Texas Instruments, Inc., Dallas, working on low distortion audio power amplifiers. The amplifier architecture and circuit techniques proposed by him solved several problems of prior work, and improved signal/distortion ratio of conventional amplifiers by more than 40 dB. He also did consulting work to Silicon Labs, Inc., on integrated circuits for high speed communications. His current research interests are in the areas of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits.
