MASc student Tony Kao received the best paper award (Gold Leaf) at the 2009 Microsystems and Nanoelectronics Research Conference held in Ottawa on October 13-14.
Our research on optical receivers for multi-Gbps systems has been highlighted by CMC Microsystems for its impact.
Our article entitled “CMOS Oscillators for Clock Distribution and Injection-Locked Deskew” appeared in the August 2009 issue of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits and immediately became one of the Journal’s Top 10 Most Downloaded Articles (#7 in August) and one of the Top 100 Downloaded Articles in the entire IEEE (#24 in August).
An article from our lab entitled “A 35-GS/s, 4-Bit Flash ADC With Active Data and Clock Distribution Trees” in the June 2009 issue of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits was one of the Journal’s Top 10 Most Downloaded Articles (#5) and one of the Top 100 Downloaded Articles in the entire IEEE (#21) in June.
Congratulations to Ph.D. student Masum Hossain, winner of the Best Student Paper at the 2008 Custom Integrated Circuits Conference for the paper entitled “20 GHz Low Power QVCO and De-skew Techniques in 0.13-um Digital CMOS”
