Eric Mercier

RF Senior Scientist, CEA-Leti 

Efficient wireless solutions for reducing power consumption and electromagnetic fields


  • Eric Mercier graduated from the ENSEEIH of Toulouse, France, in 1991, and holds a DEA in microwaves focused on near-field/far-field antenna diagram conversion done at Alcatel Space, Toulouse, France. 

  • After having held positions in the optical test equipment with Schlumberger, for physical fiber optical link tests, as analog and signal processing engineer, he has pursued his work in semiconductor companies like ST and Atmel as R&D Application & Characterization engineer, as well as Marketing engineer. His main field of interest has been low power RF dedicated to Wireless Sensor Network. He is now at CEA-Leti, France, since 2006, where he has led projects in the scope of ULP RF, with a specific focus on low-power RF transceiver design & implementation as well as on embedded resources dedicated to low-power WSN solutions. 

  • After having been the Head Manager of the Laboratory for Architectures & Integrated RF design (LAIR), in charge of designing RF solutions for ULP, UWB, LPWA, mmW, high-data rate, RFID, PA, and FEM, with a common target of addressing the lowest possible power consumption and make use of the most advanced CMOS technologies, he is now Deputy Head of the Telecom & Wireless Unit at CEA-Leti. He has coauthored some conference papers and participated to a book chapter on the topic of WSN.
