EI Lab hosted the 2nd Chip Design Workshop
- Wednesday, 24 May 2017
EI Lab hosted the 2nd Chip Design Workshop organized by IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) Benelux Chapter on 23 May 2017. The event was attended by 29 SSCS Benelux Chapter members. The purpose of the workshop was twofold: it brought together the Benelux SSCS members around their common passion for IC design, and the winners of the 2016–2017 Student Chip Design Contest were awarded their prizes. The workshop was opened by Prof. Kofi Makinwa’s welcome. Prof. Filip Tavernier of KU Leuven, representing SSCS Benelux Chapter, then gave a short presentation about the purpose of the workshop and gave the awards to the winners: Burak Gönen (TU Delft), Bert Moons (KU Leuven) and Nicholas Butse (KU Leuven). The winners then gave short talks on the topics of their works including a wide range of applications: ADCs, digital processors, and power converters. These talks were followed by two invited speakers from TU Delft. Klaas Bult’s talk “Design mistakes you’d rather not talk about” summarized the common design mistakes he faced as an expert in the industry. Prof. Fabio Sebastiano’s talk “Cryo-CMOS for Quantum Computing” was on the challenges and the IC design research for quantum computing at TU Delft. The workshop was concluded with a reception where all the attendees found a chance to meet in person.

IEEE Robert Bosch MEMS Award
Lina Sarro is the 2018 recipient of the prestigious IEEE Robert Bosch Micro and Nano Electro Mechanical Systems Award. This award is to recognize and honor advances in the invention, design, and/or fabrication of micro- or nano- electromechanical systems and/or devices. The award citation will reads “For pioneering contributions in novel materials, material integration and innovations in MEMS and strong commitment to education and technology transfer.” The award will be presented at the IEEE MEMS 2018 Conference, in January 2018.
(only available in Dutch) Nederlands leger zet sterk in op de nieuwste radar technologie
'Nederland Radarland’ is in 2002 opgezet en Defensie, Thales Nederland, TNO, TU Delft en het ministerie van Economische Zaken werken hierin samen om de modernste radars en sensoren te ontwikkelen. Woensdag 8 november werd gevierd dat dit programma 15 jaar bestaat.
Michele D'Urbino wins the A-SSCC Student Design Contest

4 papers accepted @ IEEE MEMS 2018!
Also this year ECTM will be present at the IEEE MEMS conference , the flagship conference in this field, and this time with 4 papers! Congratulations to Aleksandar, Juan, Nico, William and all co-authors!
Electrical Implants -- small devices with huge potential
Since the introduction of the pacemaker in 1958, much has changed in the world of electrical stimulation. Whereas the first electrical implants targeted muscles, the implants of today are flexible and focus mainly on the nerves in our body. The concept, however, remains unchanged: electrical implants give control back to the body. Vasiliki Giagka, Assistant Professor of Bioelectronics at TU Delft, talks about the past, present and future of her field of research.
