WHO IS LARRY BURGESS?


Lawrence R. (Larry) Burgess has worked in the Wireless field since 1972.  At Magnavox/Philips Government and Industrial Electronics, he analyzed, designed and tested adaptive antenna arrays and interference cancellers.  At Orbit/Flam & Russell, Inc., he led the design of reflector antennas, smart antenna arrays, direction finding systems, and Radar Cross-Section measurement systems.  At Zilog Corp., he incorporated signal processing IC’s into the first 900 MHz commercial cordless phones.  At startup companies like InterWave Communications and Conductus, he developed and field tested custom transceivers and front ends for Mobile phone networks using the GSM and CDMA standards.  At Maxim Integrated, he introduced several RFIC’s for license-free (802.15 and ETSI) applications such as remote car keys, tire pressure monitors, home security, and TV remote controls.  At Broadcom, he integrated adaptive digital pre-distortion  IC’s into base station transmitters for existing and emerging cellular standards, including GSM, EDGE, CDMA, UMTS, and LTE.  He has done consulting work in military satellite communication systems, Bluetooth, WiFi, and short-range radio links for medical diagnostic applications.
