Today we are supper excited to announce that we have received list of suggested books from a world-rekowned expert in communication. Dr. Nambi Seshadri, former CTO of Mobile & Wireless group at Broadcom, kindly sent us the list of books that he thinks are useful for us as students and engineers. Here is a short Biograghy of Dr. Seshadri:
Former CTO, Mobile & Wireless, Broadcom Corporation, Ph.D. - Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Nambi Seshadri is currently Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He also serves as a senior technical advisor to Quantenna Communications and a few start ups.
Prior to joining UCSD, he was with Broadcom corporation which he joined in 1999. He was the first employee dedicated to developing the company’s wireless strategy which initially began with wireless connectivity products and subsequently entered the cellular baseband market. As CTO of the Mobile Platforms and Wireless Connectivity business groups, he helped drive Broadcom’s entry into 2G and 3G cellular, mobile multimedia, low power Wi-Fi for handsets, combo chips that integrate multiple wireless connectivity technologies, GPS, 4G technologies, as well as development of a strong IPR portfolio.
Prior to joining Broadcom, he served more than 13 years with AT&T, first as a member of the technical staff in the Signal Processing Research Department of AT&T Bell Laboratories and later as Head of Communications Research at AT&T Shannon Labs. His research has been focused on developing techniques for reliable transmission of data, speech, and audio for mobile communications.
During the first few years at Bell Labs, his research collaborations resulted in novel techniques for understanding the impact of channel errors on low bit rate speech coders resulting in combined speech and channel coding and decoding solutions. In the 1990s, he co-invented space-time trellis codes with Vahid Tarokh and Robert Calderbank and their paper on this topic won the 1999 IEEE Information Theory Society Best Paper Award.
Another paper on the implementation of a modem based on space-time coding (co-authored with Tarokh, Calderbank and Ayman Naguib) was selected by IEEE Communications Society in 2002 as one of the 50 most influential works published by IEEE Communications Society in its first 50 years - The Best of Best: 50 Years of Communications and Networking Research.
These and additional works on space-time codes from AT&T and other institutions resulted in the rapid establishment of space-time codes as an important area of wireless communications.
He also helped drive adoption of hybrid ARQ in EDGE cellular transmission as a technique for robust link adaptation.
Nambi received a B.E. degree in Electronics and Communications from Regional Engineering College (now called NITT), Tiruchirapalli, India, and a M.S. and Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY. He is a Member of National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of IEEE, Distinguished alumnus of National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirapalli, India and holds more than 75 patents.

Today we are super excited to announce that we have received list of books from one of the great American scientist icons. When you see the list of his accomplishments, you would agree that he is a true legend. Professor Carver Mead has been very kind to us and encouraged us to continue working on Dorado List and he thinks this is a useful service to the scientific community. Here is a short biography of this wonderful pioneer:
Gordon and Betty Moore Professor Emeritus of Engineering and Applied Science at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Ph.D. - Caltech
A pioneer of modern microelectronics, Carver Mead has made contributions to the development and design of semiconductors, digital chips, and silicon compilers, technologies which form the foundations of modern very-large-scale integration chip design. In the 1980s, he focused on electronic modeling of human neurology and biology, creating “neuromorphic electronic systems.” Mead has been involved in the founding of more than 20 companies. In 1960, he was the first person to describe and demonstrate a three-terminal solid-state device based on the operating principles of electron tunneling and hot-electron transport. In 1966, Mead designed the first gallium arsenide gate field-effect transistor using a Schottky barrier diode to isolate the gate from the channel. Mead is credited by Gordon Moore with coining the term Moore’s law. In 1968, Mead demonstrated, contrary to common assumptions, that as transistors decreased in size, they would not become more fragile or hotter or more expensive or slower. Rather, he argued that transistors would get faster, better, cooler and cheaper as they were miniaturized. Mead was the first to predict the possibility of storing millions of transistors on a chip. Mead was one of the first researchers to investigate techniques for very-large-scale integration, designing and creating high-complexity microchips. He taught the world’s first VLSI design course, at Caltech in 1970. He co-authored the landmark text “Introduction to VLSI systems”, published in 1979. This was A pioneering textbook, it has been used in VLSI integrated circuit education all over the world for decades. Mead and his Ph.D. student David L. Johannsen created the first silicon compiler, capable of taking a user’s specifications and automatically generating an integrated circuit. Next, he worked with Professor John Hopfield and Nobelist Richard Feynman, helping to create three new fields: Neural Networks, Neuromorphic Engineering, and the Physics of Computation. As the space is limited we leave interested readers to read more about this amazing scientist on his wikipedia page. Here is a list of some of his major awards:
- 2015, Fellow, National Academy of Inventors (NAI) for his “unparalleled commitment to excellence in academic invention.”
- 2011, BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award of Information and Communication Technologies “… for his influential thinking in silicon technology. His work has enabled the development of the microchips that drive the electronic devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, DVD players) ubiquitous in our daily lives.”
- 2005, Progress Medal of the Royal Photographic Society
- 2002, National Medal of Technology
- 2002, Fellow of the Computer History Museum “for his contributions in pioneering the automation, methodology and teaching of integrated circuit design”.
- 2001, Dickson Prize in Science
- 1999, Lemelson-MIT Prize
- 1997, Allen Newell Award, Association for Computing Machinery
- 1996, John Von Neumann Medal, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
