1 paper is accepted by CICC 2012. The paper is a multi-drop high data-rate RF-Interconnect with arbitration capability for future Network-on-Chip application.
4 papers are accepted by IMS 2012. The leading author of all papers is Adrian Tang. It sets the IMS record of number of papers accepted from the same leading author. The papers cover topics of CMOS tri-color mm-wave imaging receiver, 135-150GHz transmitter, D-band frequency synthesizer, and 200GHz 16-pixel focal plane array imager.
David Murphy's paper "A Blocker-Tolerant Wideband Noise-Cancelling Receiver with a 2dB Noise Figure" is recognized as ISSCC 2012 Distinguished Technical Paper Award (Best Paper Award in ISSCC). The technique proposed in the paper breaks the traditional noise/linearity trade-off inherent in all modern receivers, and is applicable to both software-defined radios and to receivers targeting current wireless standards. The co-authors include scientists in Broadcom, Prof. Frank Chang and Prof. Abidi in UCLA. The award will be presented at ISSCC 2012 on February 20 in San Francisco. Congratulations!
