Yuanqi Hu received the B.Sc. degree in Electronic and Information engineering from Wuhan University, China, in 2009, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from Imperial College London, London, U.K. in 2010 and 2015, respectively. He was with Cirrus Logic as a Design Engineer between 2015 and 2018. He is currently a Professor with the School of Microelectronics in Beihang University.
His research interests include biomedical circuits and systems for healthcare applications with particular interest in biochemical sensing alone with the design of reference electrode. Yuanqi Hu has made a series of achievements in the field of biochips and published a total of 12 papers, including TBCAS, TCAS-I, TCBB, Sensor Journal and other IEEE flagship journals.
Appart from that, his other work focuses on the design of extremely high THD and low noise systems, involving the sub-blocks from front-end ADC to the final output stages. A typical application of high-precision, low-noise Analog-Mixed signal IC is the audio chips. In this aspect of research and development, Yuanqi Hu participated in several flagship projects of Cirrus Logic, and twice led the R&D team to design and develop subsystems. Many of its flagship products have been highly praised by the market, and have successfully won orders for many flagship mobile phones including Samsung S7/S8/S9/S10. These ICs have obtatined more than $200M market share, and Yuanqi Hu was granted a Double Platinum Award consequently. (The The data was published by Strategy Analytics, a world-renowned market research organization).
Yuanqi Hu has been granted $940,000 by the NSFC and Beihang University as the start-up funding for his lab construction, and he is currently host a National Grade project "Research on the Compensation of Nonlinearity and Non-ideal in Ion Sensitive Field Effect Transistor" from the NSFC.
Yuanqi Hu has been rewarded as Distinguished Instructor in the 3rd China College IC Competition as his team won the Enterprise Award (1/155) during the competition.
