BANGALORE, INDIA: Broadcom Corporation has announced today that Dr. Arogyaswami Paulraj, who recently joined Broadcom from Beceem Communications, has been named the recipient of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) Alexander Graham Bell Medal, the organization’s most prestigious honor.


In its award citation, the IEEE’s Board of Directors said that in its efforts to recognize “exceptional achievements in our profession,” Dr. Paulraj was selected “for pioneering contributions to the application of multiantenna technology to wireless communications systems.”

“As a community of engineers, we at Broadcom are delighted and honored by the IEEE’s selection of Dr. Paulraj for the Bell Medal,” said Dr. Henry Samueli, Broadcom’s co-founder and chief technical officer.

“This is an outstanding achievement, and all of us at Broadcom extend our collective congratulations to him, his family and all of his colleagues who have had the pleasure to work with Dr. Paulraj over the years,” added Samueli.

Dr. Paulraj, a co-founder of Beceem Communications Inc., which Broadcom acquired last month, is a pioneer in MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) wireless technology, which relies on multiple radio antennas as both the transmitter and receiver to improve communications performance.

An emeritus professor at Stanford University, where he supervises the Smart Antennas Research Group, Dr. Paulraj will continue as a senior technical advisor to Broadcom, added the release.
