Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Korb

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Kaufmann Matthias Korb is the chair of “Secure Digital Circuits” at the department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the University of the German Federal Armed Forces in Munich since July 2020. Prof. Korb graduated in electrical engineering and information technology from RWTH Aachen University with honors in 2006. He was awarded the Friedrich Wilhelm Award for his doctoral thesis on “Deep submicron full-custom VLSI design of highly optimized high throughput low latency LDPC decoders” in 2013. Prof. Korb also graduated in business economics from the FernUniversität in Hagen, Germany in 2012.
From 2012 to 2016 Prof. Korb was a member of the “Office of the CTO”, the centralized department for research and development within Broadcom Corporation in Irvine, California, USA. During this time Prof. Korb designed and optimized key digital building blocks for various communication systems including Broadcom’s leading-edge IEEE 802.11ac and 802.11ad WiFi modems. He also actively contributed to the development of next generation WiFi communication standards IEEE 802.11ax and 802.11ay. In 2016 Prof. Korb joined the Integrated Systems Laboratory of the ETH Zurich, Switzerland and Advanced Circuit Pursuit AG where he focused on the design of System-on-Chip modems for the Internet-of-Things. Prof. Korb and his team designed one of the worldwide first Internet-of-Things-centric cellular modems, which supports both extended-coverage standards EC-GSM and NB-IoT.
Prof. Korb is the author of numerous publications and is co-inventor of 5 US patents in the field of digital communication. He was awarded the IEEE Senior Membership in 2018. He serves as a reviewer for various conferences and journals including the International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design, IEEE communication letters and IEEE transactions on communication. In addition to his position at the University of the German Federal Armed Forces in Munich Prof. Korb is also heading the research group “Digital Communication for the IoT” at ETH Zurich.
