- Monday, 28 May 2018
For the third year, the IEEE SSCS Benelux Chapter organized a Chip Design Contest for MSc and PhD students in the Benelux. This year, the second prize was won by Zhao Chen, for his contribution “A Front-End ASIC with Integrated Subarray Beamforming ADCs for Miniature 3D Ultrasound Probes”. Zhao received the award at the 2018 SSCS Benelux Chip Design Workshop, which was held at the University of Leuven on May 22, 2018.
More details on Zhao’s award-winning work can be found in the following paper: C. Chen, Z. Chen, D. Bera, E. Noothout, Z. Y. Chang, M. Tan, H. J. Vos, J. G. Bosch, M. D. Verweij, N. de Jong, and M. A. P. Pertijs, “A 0.91mW/element pitch-matched front-end ASIC with integrated subarray beamforming ADC for miniature 3D ultrasound probes,” in Dig. Techn. Papers IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), pp. 186-188, Feb. 2018.
First Microelectronics Synergy Grants
The department of Microelectronics (ME) has just awarded its first Synergy Grants to three research teams. As the name implies, these grants are intended to strengthen the synergy between the research done by the various sections of the ME department. The main authors of the winning research proposals are Akira Endo & Sten Vollebregt, Virgilio Valente & Massimo Mastrangeli and Bori Hunyadi.
On January 7 and 8, 2019, the Ultrasound ASICs group organized a workshop of the ULIMPIA project
