UM’s AMS-VLSI Lab has completed 24 PhD oral defenses of world-class standards|
The University of Macau (UM) has
nurtured 24 PhD graduates since the founding of the laboratory in microelectronics
research. Many of them have been employed by leading companies and institutes
in the field. Recently, Arshad Hussain, a PhD candidate from the State
Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI (AMS-VLSI Lab), has completed his doctoral oral defense, with external
examiners unanimously praising his PhD dissertation for reaching world-class
standards. Hussain was supervised by
Prof U Seng-Pan and Prof Sin Sai-Weng.
Titled ‘High-Resolution Passive and Active-Passive Switched-Capacitor Delta-Sigma
Modulator Design Techniques in Nanoscale CMOS’, Hussain’s thesis has already led
to one IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) SCI journal
paper and two IEEE conference papers.
Only renowned professors and experts in the area of microelectronics are
invited to serve as external committee members for the PhD oral defenses at
AMS-VLSI Lab. Prof Geng Li, vice dean of the School
of Microelectronics at Xi’an Jiaotong University, was an external member of the
examination committee for Hussain’s oral defense. Geng was a member of the Technical
Program Committee of the Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (ASSCC) from
2010 to 2016.
UM’s postgraduate students in microelectronics research have published a
total of 190 papers in prestigious journals and 304 papers at conferences, including
top IEEE journals and conferences such as the Journal of Solid-State Circuits (JSSC), Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems (T-VLSI), the International
Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), European Solid-State Circuits
Conference (ESSCIRC), the Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (A-SSCC), and
Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS).
Besides academic careers at UM as professors, associate professors,
assistant professors and UM Macao Fellow, graduates of the AMS-VLSI Lab have
been employed by leading companies and institutes in the field, such as
Synopsys, Qualcomm in the United States, Mediatek in Singapore, Silicon Labs,
Marvell Technology Group, STMicroelectronics, Huawei, Solomon Systech, and the Chinese
Academy of Sciences.
