Matt Heins joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas in 2016, as a Senior Lecturer.

Matt served in design and design management roles for over 15 years at Qorvo (previously TriQuint Semiconductor). Matt designed MMIC LNAs, amplifiers, switches, and VCOs for 77 GHz collision-avoidance radars, amplifiers for CATV networks, and broadband amplifiers for optical transport networks. These product designs achieved volume production and customer deployment. Matt also led design teams responsible for MMIC and module component product development for VSAT radios, wireless backhaul links, and high data-rate optical transport networks, using III-V and SiGe IC technologies.

Matt is a Senior Member of the IEEE, and has authored or co-authored several papers related to microwave integrated circuits
