Burak wins 1st prize in the SSCS Benelux Chapter's Student Chip Design Contest!

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.

Slimme sensor die energie uit de lucht plukt, heeft eindeloos veel toepassingsmogelijkheden

Begin oktober gingen ze in het kader van een pilot het asfalt in: slimme sensoren die de temperatuur in het wegdek meten, zodat onder andere veel gerichter en efficiënter tegen gladheid kan worden gestrooid. De innovatie werd mede mogelijk gemaakt door de sectie Bioelectronics binnen de faculteit Elektrotechniek, Wiskunde en Informatica van de TU Delft die zich volgens hoogleraar Wouter Serdijn vooral bezig houdt met…de elektronische behandeling van aandoeningen in het menselijk lichaam.

Maakt bio-elektronica medicijnen overbodig?

Artikel van ir. Jim Heirbaut in De Ingenieur, d. 9 april 2018, over dat sommige reumapatiënten minder last van ontstekingen in hun gewrichten hebben als er onschuldige stroompulsjes worden losgelaten op de zenuwbundel in hun hals. Met daarin een bijdrage van Wouter Serdijn, hoogleraar bioelektronica aan de TU Delft.

How Master student Alberto contributes to impact

Master student Alberto Gancedo from Spain got the opportunity, via Delft University Fund, to start his Master’s programme Microelectronics at TU Delft in September 2017. Besides studying, he is also working on his own project ‘Amplitude-integrated EEG measurement system (aEEG)’. Alberto’s goal: to develop a small, portable and cheap monitoring device to detect babies unusual brain activity directly after birth.

NWO-High Tech Systems and Materials proposal awarded to ECTM

Sun sensors, which are used to determine the satellite orientation towards the sun, are a vital part of the satellite attitude control. Current commercial available sun sensors are too large and costly to be integrated in the small satellites, e.g., nanosats. Due to the low costs of these satellites, they enable a wide range of applications which otherwise would not be possible or cost-effective. By developing a sun sensor that is fully integrated on a single substrate, the overall size of the sensor can be significantly reduced and costly extra calibration is avoided. By using SiC as material, we secure high performance and high reliability under harsh environment. In addition, the sensor will not be sensitive to reflections of the earth, as it uses the parts of the light spectrum absorbed by the atmosphere.
