Yu-Jiu Wang was born in Taichung, Taiwan. He received the BS degree in electrical engineering from National Taiwan University, Taiwan, in 2001, and the MS and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA in 2006 and 2009, respectively.
He was a research assistant with the MMIC group in National Taiwan University, where he studied Q-band and V-band compound semiconductor MMICs from 1999 to 2001. He served as a naval officer for the obligatory military service from 2001 to 2003. He was an assistant instructor for electronics laboratory in NTU from 2003 to 2004. He studied noisy network decorrelation theory, MMIC and dual-band phased-array systems, and concurrent UWB RF transceiver systems in his graduate studies in Caltech from 2004 to 2009. In 2009, he was an assistant professor in the Department of Electronics Engineering, National Chiao-Tung University, Hsin-Chu, Taiwan. Since 2015, he became a tenured associate professor. In 2019, he formally left National Chiao Tung University to focus on his company named: Tron Future Tech Inc. as the Chairman and C.E.O. Tron Future Tech Inc. focus on ultra thin all-digital phased array multi-function radar, though they also design their own ICs. They ship phased array radar system directly to end users. They currently cover off-shore energy, aerospace and military industry in several Asian countries; though they are also exploring European and American markets. The company is currently 100% privately-held without VC-backing, and is driven solely by revenues from customers.
Dr. Wang was the first prize winner of the National Physics Competition and the Silver medal winner of the 27th, and 28th International Physics Olympiad, Oslo, Norway in 1996, and Ontario, Canada in 1997 respectively. He also led a team to win the championship in a National Entrepreneurship Competition.
