Zhao Chen wins second prize in SSCS Benelux Chip Design Contest

For the third year, the IEEE SSCS Benelux Chapter organized a Chip Design Contest for MSc and PhD students in the Benelux. This year, the second prize was won by Zhao Chen, for his contribution “A Front-End ASIC with Integrated Subarray Beamforming ADCs for Miniature 3D Ultrasound Probes”. Zhao received the award at the 2018 SSCS Benelux Chip Design Workshop, which was held at the University of Leuven on May 22, 2018.

More details on Zhao’s award-winning work can be found in the following paper: C. Chen, Z. Chen, D. Bera, E. Noothout, Z. Y. Chang, M. Tan, H. J. Vos, J. G. Bosch, M. D. Verweij, N. de Jong, and M. A. P. Pertijs, “A 0.91mW/element pitch-matched front-end ASIC with integrated subarray beamforming ADC for miniature 3D ultrasound probes,” in Dig. Techn. Papers IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), pp. 186-188, Feb. 2018.

Volgens de wetenschap kunnen doven straks horen en blinden zien

Er staan veel filmpjes online van emotionele mensen die, met behulp van moderne technologie, voor het eerst hun familie kunnen zien. Of van kinderen die voor het eerst de stem van hun ouders horen. Het zijn voorbeelden van de eerste stappen naar het genezen van blindheid. Prof. dr. Wouter Serdijn doet onderzoek naar het ontwikkelen van bio-elektronica met als doel het behandelen van deze menselijke kwalen. Artikel in het AD van 26 oktober 2018.
