Malcolm Smith is an RFIC technical leader and CMOS PA expert who has been working in the cellular space since 1996. He spent the last nine years in a technical leadership position working on CMOS PAs and Tx Modules for 2G, 2.5G and 3G phones firstly at Amalfi Semiconductor and then at RFMD after the acquisition of Amalfi. He is the primary inventor on the Amalfi CMOS PA output stage structure used in all Amalfi PAs and the sole inventor on the architecture for integrating the front-end switch function in bulk CMOS (used in the AM7826, AM7828, RF7196D, RF7196, and RF7198). Before Amalfi Semiconductor, he worked at Intel and Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs where he gained extensive experience in cellular transceiver architecture, systems', and circuit design at the RFIC, analog, and mixed-signal level. Dr. Smith has a B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Microelectronics from the University of Edinburgh, an M.Sc. in Digital Systems' Design and Intrumentation from the University of Westminster, and a Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering from the University of Kent.
