Management & Board of Directors
Founder of AbraxisBioScience, American Pharmaceutical Partners, and NantWorks
As Tensorcom's Vice President of Engineering, Zaw Soe is responsible for leading Tensorcom's engineering team. A team comprised of engineers working in RF, mixed-signal and digital design, system verification, back-end, chip packaging, software development, architecture definition, and intellectual property creation.
Zaw has over 20 years of experience in analog electronics. Prior to Tensorcom, Zaw worked 7 years at Realtek Semiconductor leading distributed engineering teams in the development of a Bluetooth PHY, an IEEE 802.11a/b/g compliant WLAN transceiver, and an Ultra Wideband PHY. After joining Tensorcom in 2011, Zaw has been applying his extensive technical and management skills to lead the Tensorcom Engineering team in developing the first low power consuming, 60GHz CMOS system on chip that enables Gigabit/s communications for a wide range of mobile and handheld devices.
Zaw earned a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Drexel University - Philadephia, PA and a master's degree in Electrical Engineering, University of Pennsylvania - Philadelphia, PA. Zaw has authored or co-authored ten patents issued or pending in the areas of high speed DACs, PLL tuning, I/Q compensation, and Spread Spectrum Modulation. He also is the holder of seven issued patents dealing specifically with 60GHz RF.
