BiographyArjuna Marzuki received the B.Eng (Hons) in Electronic (Communication) from the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering of the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom, MSc from Universiti Sains Malaysia and Ph.D. from Universiti Malaysia Perlis. Arjuna joined Hewlett-Packard as an R&D engineer in Wireless Semiconductor Division in 1997. His main jobs were to design radio frequency (RF) and radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) products. Such products were high-frequency transistors, RF gain blocks, I/Q demodulator, etc. He then later joined IC Microsystems Sdn. Bhd. in Cyberjaya, Selangor, Malaysia as IC design staff engineer. In the company, he involved in designing 12/10/8 bits digital-to-analog converter ICs and family of RFIC devices. He also managed to secure MYR 3.5 million MGS fund for RFIC device research and development/commercialization. He later joined Agilent Technologies as IC design engineer/manager in Optical Product Division. His main jobs were to lead the analog design group, which was assigned to design operational amplifiers, band-gap circuits, data-converters, I/Os, Power-on reset and etc.
A small contribution by the group was "Industry's 1st Digital Color Sensor IC with I/O via 2-wire Serial Interface", which was released in February 2006 by Avago Technologies. He has been granted 1 US patent and has developed more than 20 commercial products during his employment with Hewlett-Packard/Agilent Technologies and IC Microsystems. Arjuna had gained professional qualification as a professional and chartered engineer when he was registered with the Board of Engineers Malaysia and Engineering Council UK, respectively. He is also a fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET)- FIET. He was a recipient of the 2010 IETE J C Bose Memorial Award. Arjuna is currently an associate professor at Universiti Sains Malaysia and engaged in the teaching of analog integrated circuit courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He is also active in supervising Ph.D. students in the area of microelectronic research. He has served as referees for many journals and conferences. He has so far published more than 60 technical papers in journals and conferences.
