Research Interests
High-speed optical and millimeter-wave communication SoC design, visible light communication SoC design and application software, CMOS optical and mm-wave passive component modeling, wireless power transfer, and energy-efficient interface circuits for miniature photonic sensors.

Prof. C. Patrick Yue is a Professor in Electronic and Computer Engineering and the Director of the HKUST-Qualcomm Lab. His research interest include high-speed optical communication and millimeter-wave broadband integrated circuit design, millimeter-wave passive component modeling, visible light communication SoC design, optical camera communication applications, and wireless power transfer system design.
Based on his PhD work at Stanford University, he co-founded Atheros Communications in 1998. He applied his expertise in CMOS RF transistor and passive component modeling to enable the deployment of the world's first 802.11a 5-GHz CMOS RF transceiver. After four years at Atheros, he joined anther Silicon Valley startup Aeluros to develop 10-Gbps CMOS serdes IC products for the optical-to-electrical modules based on the XAUI interface. During 2001-2003, Dr. Yue was a Consulting Assistant Professor in the EE Department at Stanford. In 2003, he joined Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. as an Assistant Professor in the  Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. In 2006, Prof. Yue moved back to CA to join UC Santa Barbara where he taught until 2011. Prof. Yue is an active advisor to a number of startups based in the US and mainland China.
Prof. Yue has contributed to more than 150 peer-reviewed technical papers and two book chapters. He currently holds 15 US patents of which most are employed in IC products. He was a co-recipient of the 2003 International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) Best Student Paper Award, 2015 International IEEE Wireless Symposium and the 2017 IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Outstanding Young Author Award. He is the first author of a top-10 most cited paper in history of IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits (Google citation index over 1400). He has served on the organizing and technical committee of a number of international conferences including IEEE VLSI Circuits Symposium, IEEE European Solid-State Circuits Conference, IEEE International Wireless Symposium, IEEE RFIC Symposium, IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference, and International Symposium on VLSI Design, Automation and Test. He is an IEEE Fellow, an OSA Senior Member, an Editor for the Proceedings of IEEE, and the Membership Chair of the IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society.
