Professor Henry Chen received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in 1989, in electrical engineering. Since joining Wright State University in 1989 he has worked primarily in the area of VLSI/FPGA/GPU design from digital portable computing devices, radio-frequency (RF) components to embedded system applications such as radar/ultra-wideband digital receivers, 5G communications, and assured/trusted hardware security, where he is currently a Professor.  Professor Chen collaborates with researchers from a range of disciplines to advance the development of ultra-wideband receivers for efficiently collecting, analyzing, and classifying signals in the noisy signal environment within a wide radio-frequency spectrum.  Professor Chen received the 2016 IEEE Harrell V. Noble Award, Dayton Section,  “For the development of wideband receiver technology capable of detecting high chirp rate signals and realizing this state-of-the-art receiver technology in a real-time hardware prototype.” Professor Chen’s foundational contributions to his primary field of research are derived from problems posed by the wide variety of possible application areas.  He has supervised 11 doctoral and 48 master students on application topics and has published over 125 Journal articles and conference papers. He has served in Technical Committees of numerical IEEE Conferences. He is currently on the Editorial Board of Integration – the VLSI Journal and Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  He has consulted for several US semiconductor companies.
