Ask Katehi

How many patents do you have and what are they for?

I currently have 19 U.S. patents and I have an additional five U.S. patent applications pending for my work in electric circuit design. To be more specific, I have designed cell phone, radar and antenna circuits that are used in signal transmitting, receiving and processing.

In 1969, I remember watching Neil Armstrong’s moon landing from my neighbor’s house – my family did not own a television at the time – and being captivated by all the people in mission control in Houston and all the different electronics I had never seen before. It was at that very moment that I realized I wanted to become an electrical engineer.

Today, I reflect on that moment and see how far one can go when you are determined to accomplish the goals you set for yourself. This is why I encourage all of you to set your goals high because when you put your mind to something, you will most certainly achieve it.
