James Jaussi is a Senior Principal Engineer and director of the PHY Research Lab in Intel Labs at Intel Corporation. Research areas include electrical and optical I/O circuits, photonic devices and systems, prototype characterization and test methods, and link system modeling and analysis tools and methodologies.
James joined Intel’s Signaling Research Group in 2001 as an I/O circuit researcher after graduating with the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. His main passion was analog and mixed-signal circuit design and building innovative high-performance I/O prototypes. He has designed and tested many silicon test chips. James has contributed to industry I/O standards including PCIe, MIPI M-PHY and USB. Two of his primary technical focus areas were clocking architectures and link modeling. Between 2012 and 2015, he led the MIPI M-PHY sub-group. He received the MIPI Distinguished Service Award in 2015 for M-PHY specification contribution and he was recognized for his contributions to the USB Type-C effort with an Intel Achievement Award in 2016. James holds more than 60 patents in I/O circuits, architectures, and packaging topologies
