PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University professor Deukhyoun Heo has been named the Frank Brands Distinguished Professor in Analog Electronics in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The professorship supports faculty and programs enhancement in microelectronics at WSU.

Since coming to WSU in 2003, Heo has researched ultra-high-frequency communication circuits and systems and intelligent power management circuits for high-performance system-on-chip designs. His work is intended for deployment in post-5G cellular systems, other next-generation communication infrastructure and a variety of low-power applications.

In 2009 he was a recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award. He leads WSU’s Advanced RF and Mixed-Signal Application Group (ARMAG), where he has graduated a dozen Ph.D. students and is advising 10. He received his Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2000.

Brands was a 1960 alumnus who worked in industry before becoming a longtime professor of electrical engineering until 1998. The professorship was established upon his retirement, and he passed away in 2005.
