ISSCC 2012 Distinguished-Technical-Paper Award
collaborative research between UCLA and Broadcom has led to the
recognition of ISSCC 2012 Distinguished-Technical-Paper Award for the
paper entitled "A Blocker-Tolerant Wideband Noise-Cancelling Receiver
with a 2dB Noise Figure". The lead author is UCLA's PhD candidate David
Murphy with co-authorship of Broadcom's Amr Hafez, Ahmad Mirzaei, Mohyee
Mikhemar, Hooman Darabi and UCLA's Prof. Mau-Chung Frank Chang and
Prof. Asad Abidi.
Mr. David Murphy explains, "The proposed circuit architecture/technique 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."
ISSCC (International Solid State Circuit Conference) 2012 is focusing on the theme Silicon Systems for Sustainability covering over 200 technical presentations on benchmark results, designs in cutting edge processes and circuits in new device technologies. The award will be presented at ISSCC 2012 on February 20 in San Francisco California.
