Rajeev Jain received the B.Tech. degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology in 1978, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven, Belgium, in 1985.

Dr. Jain worked at Siemens AG in Munich, Germany, where he developed CAD tools for automatic programmable signal processor code-generation to implement digital filters. He has also worked at IMEC, Leuven, where he was responsible for the development of the Cathedral-I CAD system for automatic design of DSP circuits using bit-serial architectures, which has resulted in the commercial product called DSP Station. As a research engineer at the University of California, Berkeley, he worked on the development of the Lager IV design system for bit-parallel signal processing circuits. At UCLA, Prof. Jain has created courses in DSP design and has pioneered R&D programs in the design of high-speed communication circuits and wireless multimedia networking systems.

Research Interests

Professor Jain's research focuses on embedded hardware-software design for signal processing systems-on-a-chip. Current research efforts are concentrated on CAD tools for design of high-performance signal processing architectures and the development of ASICs for spread-spectrum modems and image compression.
