Burak wins 1st prize in the SSCS Benelux Chapter's Student Chip Design Contest!
- Thursday, 23 February 2017
Burak Gonen won 1st prize in the Student Chip Design Competition organized by the Benelux Chapter of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS). He received the award for the design of "A Dynamic Zoom ADC with 109-dB DR for Audio Applications." The ADC, developed in collaboration with NXP, achieves state-ot-the-art performance in terms of both its area and energy efficiency.
To recognize the excellence and to promote chip design in Benelux region, the IEEE Solid State Circuits Society Benelux Chapter organized a chip design contest for students. The Award includes 750€ as well as a travel grant up to 1000€ for Advances in Analog Circuit Design Workshop (AACD) or European Solid State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC). The awards will be given in a workshop at TU Delft in spring 2017 together with the award winners' presentations and other technical talks about chip design research in TU Delft.
