Dr. Yongbin Wei is currently a Senior Director of Engineering with Qualcomm Research of Qualcomm Incorporated. Qualcomm is an S&P 500 company, leading in developing and delivering innovative digital wireless communications products and services. Its business areas include integrated chipsets and system software for cellular communications, technology licensing, satellite-based systems, etc. At Qualcomm research, Yongbin has been leading new technology development for Qualcomm’s current and future generation products, in particular the cutting-edge 5G NR technology recently. Prior to that, he has worked on the system design, standardization and product development of cdma2000 Rev. C and Rev. D. (1xEV-DV), HRPD (1xEV-DO), 4G LTE, LTE advanced, and LTE advanced pro. He was one of the leading contributors for the physical layer design and evaluation of these systems. He also represented Qualcomm in 3GPP2 from 2000 to 2006. His research areas includes wireless communications systems, adaptive signal processing, modem algorithms, machine-to-machine communication, spectrum sharing, and RF engineering. He has authored more than 20 journal and conference papers, and holds more than 200 US issued patents with many more pending. Dr. Wei received Bachelor and Master degrees from Univ. of Science and Technology of China, and Ph.D. degree from Purdue University, all in Electrical Engineering.
