June 2016:

Since long, the Benelux has a strong expertise in IC design. To recognize this excellence and to promote chip design among the Benelux EE students, the IEEE SSCS Benelux Chapter organizes a yearly chip design contest for students.

This year, the third prize was won by Hui Jiang, for his contribution “Ring-Down-Based Readout Circuit for Resonant Sensors”. Hui received the award at the 2016 SSCS Benelux Workshop, which was held at the University of Twente on June 8.

More details on Hui’s award-winning work can be found in the following paper: H. Jiang, Z. Y. Chang and M. A. P. Pertijs, “A 30-ppm <80-nJ Ring-Down-Based Readout Circuit for Resonant Sensors,” IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, vol. 51, no. 1, pp. 187-195, Jan. 2016.

October 2015:

At the 2015 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium in Taipei, Taiwan, Chao received the student travel grant, in recognition of his work on the paper "A single-cable PVDF transducer Readout IC for Intravascular Photoacoustic Imaging".


February 2015:

PhD student Hui Jiang has been awarded a ISSCC 2015 Student Travel Grant of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. This award is a recognition by the Solid-State Circuits Society of his accomplishments as graduate student to the field of solid-state circuits. At ISSCC 2015, Hui presented a paper entitled “A 30ppm <80nJ Ring-Down-Based Readout Circuit for Resonant Sensors”.
