Joseph Boccuzzi, Ph.D.
Dr. Boccuzzi has been in the Wireless and Wired Digital Communications field for over 20 years. His experience has a range from Algorithmic Development, Realtime Coding (DSP & ARM) and Systems Architect to Product Management with respect to 2G, 3G WCDMA, CDMA2000, HSDPA/HSUPA, LTE, DVB-H, GPS, WLAN, BT, etc. with a good understanding of the RF, Base Band, Audio and Multi-media issues involved in developing a consumer product.
He developed multimode reconfigurable receiver architectures supporting spread spectrum (WCDMA, IS-95, CDMA2000, WLAN and GPS); worked on Adaptive Antenna Array (Smart Antenna) algorithms for WCDMA, TDMA and OFDMA systems. He also investigated SISO, SIMO, MISO and MIMO antenna configurations.
He has designed complete uplink and downlink digital communication system simulations for both Wireless and Wireline technologies including: Modems, Codecs, RF Impairments, Channel models, etc. These simulations supported both the link and network levels and involved mathematical analysis. The algorithms included: high speed cable modems, power line communications, satellite systems, Flex paging systems, CT-2, DECT, JDC, IS-136, GSM, DVB-H, WiMax, WLL, Bluetooth, etc.
An author of technical papers, prepared technology presentations worldwide and holds over 20 patents, domestic and international. Dr. Boccuzzi is an instructor for Besser Associates. He is the author of two books Signal Processing for Wireless Communications and Femtocells: Design & Application, both published by McGraw Hill. He currently works for Nvidia as Principal 5G Systems.
