- Low-voltage/power processing for digital TV and FM r
- Servo and read channels for DVD and disc drive
Bang-Sup Song received the B.S. from the Seoul National University in 1973, the M.S. from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science in 1975, and the Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1983.
From 1975 to 1978, Dr. Song was a member of the research staff at the Agency for Defense Development, Korea, working on fire-control radars and spread-spectrum communications. From 1983 to 1986, he was a member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, and was also a visiting faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Rutgers University. From 1986 to 1999, he was a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Coordinated Science Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana.
In 1999, he joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, San Diego, where he is endowed with the Charles Lee Powell Chair in Wireless Communications.
Dr. Song received a Distinguished Technical Staff Award from AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1986, a Career Development Professor Award from Analog Devices in 1987, and a Xerox Senior Faculty Research Award from the University of Illinois in 1995. His IEEE activities have been in the capacities of an Associate Editor, a Guest Editor, and a Program Committee Member for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference, and IEEE Symposium on Circuits and Systems. Dr. Song is an IEEE Fellow.
