Jérôme Prouvée

RF Layout Eng. & Project Manager, CEA-Leti


Jerome Prouvee received the Degree in engineering and M.S. Degree from INPG Grenoble, France in electronics and radiofrequencies in 2000.
After 2 short periods respectively in model extraction at STMicroelectronics Crolles France, and the RF lab of ENSTA Paris, he join the emerging RFIC design team of CEA Leti in 2001 and stayed there ever since. He spent 14 years in test & characterization, mostly specialized in RF R&D IC charaterization, test projects management and industrialization test. He changed to custom and RF IC layout 6 years ago. He now splits his time between IC layout and project management. His main technical interest involve RF test, RF and mixed signal layout and custom/analog IC TOP assembly.


5G and beyond telecommunications expect always more data traffic, with less power. Facing a saturated conventional radiofrequency range, developing mmWave Beamforming architectures has become one of the main "new radio" strategy for new generation RFIC (RadioFrenquecy Integrated Circuit) designs.
Using both FDSOI capabilities and innovative design technics, CEA Leti's RFIC Design team explains how they contribute to the the joint european project Beyond5. Perspective of further works and current investigations are also illustrated.
This presentation focus on:
- mmWave Beamforming architecture concept
- FDSOI for mmWave Front Ends and Beyond5 project
- Design technics for PA (Power Amplifier), Mixer, signal generation and other design key subjects for mmWave beamforming RFIC architectures.
