For two years in a row, UCLA wins first place in the Broadcom Foundation University Research Competition. This year grad student Rod Yanghyo Kim’s research entitled “Hollow Plastic Cable and mm-Wave CMOS Transceiver Enabled High-Speed and Energy Efficient Data Link” attracts the interest and confidence of the judges by transferring data through a lightweight and inexpensive hollow plastic tube. Rod Kim’s advisor is Professor Frank Chang.
The Broadcom Foundation University Research Competition brings together highly brilliant grad students whose research has been funded by the Foundation in the previous year. The search committee selects the top twelve who will vie for cash prizes to further their research. Each student gives a 3-minute pitch presentation. Over 400 engineers at Broadcom vote based on the student’s technical ingenuity and communication skills for those who get the top 3 prizes. Click here
