Maicon Deivid Pereira

(CV Lattes)

After graduating in Electrical Engineering at the Federal University of Santa Catarina – UFSC in 2006, I received a master’s degree in Integrated Circuits and Systems from the same university in 2009. From 2009 to 2012 I worked with the Centro de Tecnologia da Informação Renato Archer (Center for Information Technology Renato Archer) as an analog/radio-frequency IC designer. Now I’m a PhD student with the Radio Frequency Research Group at UFSC. My thesis theme is related to ultra low power and high efficiency transceivers for body area networks. With that in mind, I’m focusing in Human Body Communication (HBC), also know as BCC, performing channel measurements, modeling and transceiver design. In general my interest fields are integrated CMOS analog/RF electronics and wireless communication systems.

Paulo Marcio Moreira e Silva

(CV Lattes)

Received his B.Eng. degree in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering from PUC­MINAS in 2007 and obtained a M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from UFSC in 2012. During his master period, Paulo gained experience in the design and characterization of RF integrated circuits, specially low noise amplifiers operating at 2.4 GHz. Currently, he is a PhD candidate and his thesis theme is related with self testing of integrated systems, with focus on communication circuits that use LC networks. His main interests are in analog and RF communication circuits and in built-­in self test of radio frequency systems.

Heron Eduardo de Lima Ávila

(CV Lattes)

Received my B.Eng. degree in Automation and Control Engineering at the University College Assis Gurgacz (2010), and obtained my M.Sc. degree in System and Automation Engineering at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (2013). During the master period, I contributed to the development of an electromagnetic sensor for multi phase flow measurement in the oil and gas instrumentation area. I am currently studying my PhD in the Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Research Group, on the Radiofrequency Laboratory at the university. My main interest fields are related to oil and gas instrumentation and RF circuits.

Rodrigo Eduardo Rottava

(CV Lattes)

Rodrigo Eduardo Rottava received the B.Eng. degree in electronic engineering from the Federal University of Santa Catarina in 2015, with a one­ year exchange program in The University of Melbourne in 2013. He is currently working towards a master degree in electrical engineering from the same institution, and he is also an IC designer on LSITEC. During the five years of undergraduate studies he contributed in several researches in the analog/RF electronics and IC design areas. Some of his past works are related to super regenerative reception, low­voltage and low­power oscillators and automatic LC network tuning. His current research is in RF backscattering, and he is wondering about the limitations of wireless battery­less tags for large distance communication.
