HKIAS Senior Fellows

Professor Mau-Chung Frank Chang, a renowned electrical engineering scientist and Academician of National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan, was appointed as HKIAS Senior Fellow in August 2019.

Professor Mau-Chung Frank Chang is currently an Academician of National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Hsinchu, Taiwan. Previously, he was the Chairman and Wintek Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) (1997-2015).

Before joining UCLA, he was the Assistant Director and Department Manager of the High Speed Electronics Laboratory of Rockwell International Science Center (1983-1997), Thousand Oaks, California. In this tenure, he developed and transferred the AlGaAs/GaAs Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor (HBT) and BiFET (Planar HBT/MESFET) integrated circuit technologies from the research laboratory to the production line (later became Conexant Systems and Skyworks). The HBT/BiFET productions have grown into multi-billion dollar businesses and have dominated the cell phone power amplifier and front-end module markets for the past twenty years (currently exceeding 10 billion units/year and exceeding 50 billion units in the last decade).

Throughout his career, Professor Chang's research has primarily focused on the research & development of high-speed semiconductor devices and integrated circuits for RF and mixed-signal communication radio, radar, and imaging system applications.
