Alex presented his work at the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC) on “A 16×20 Electrochemical CMOS Biosensor Array with In-Pixel Averaging Using Polar Modulation.” Read more about it here.
Haowei also presented his work on a “A Sub-1 µW Multiparameter Injectable BioMote for Continuous Alcohol Monitoring.” Read more about it here.
Congratulations to Edwin for receiving the Analog Devices outstanding student designer award! This award is presented by Analog Devices annually for excellence in analog, mixed-signal, or digital IC design, or system-level IC architectures, as well as excellence in class work, project, or thesis work and the potential for outstanding industrial contribution. The award will be presented at the 2018 International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).
Edwin and Alex’s work titled “A 16×20 Electrochemical CMOS Biosensor Array with In-Pixel Averaging Using Polar Modulation” and Haowei, Xiahan, and Rajesh’s work on a “A Sub-1 µW Multiparameter Injectable BioMote for Continuous Alcohol Monitoring” were both accepted for oral presentation at the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC)! Congratulations!
Haowei and Somok presented their work at the Western Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (WECEDHA) hosted at UCSD.
Our DARPA funded work on an ultra-low power wireless wake-up radio was featured on C4ISRNET (a publication covering emerging issues and trends in global military transformation and network centric warfare technologies). Read more about it here. Congratulations, Haowei!
Edwin’s work titled “A Current Measurement Front-end with 160dB Dynamic Range and 7 ppm INL” was accepted for presentation at the prestigious IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco, California. Congratulations, Edwin!
Alex’s work titled “A 64×64 High-Density Redox Amplified Coulostatic Discharge-Based Biosensor Array in 180nm CMOS” and Haowei’s work on a “A 400 MHz 4.5 nW -63.8 dBm Sensitivity Wake-Up Receiver Employing an Active Pseudo-Balun Envelope Detector” were presented at the IEEE European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC) in Leuven, Belgium.
