Three PhD students from the University of Macau (UM) State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI and Faculty of Science and Technology did exceptionally well at the 61st IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), which is considered the “Chip Olympics”. One of them received the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Predoctoral Achievement Award, and the other two were interviewed during the conference by a number of the world’s leading IC companies including MediaTek and Qualcomm, with Qualcomm inviting them to visit its headquarters in San Diego, United States, with full financial support, to present their papers and to each receive an intensive five-hour job interview. The three students, Yan Zushu, Lin Fujian and Lin Zhicheng, are supervised by Chair Professor Rui Martins and Prof. Elvis Mak Pui In.

Over 3,000 representatives from the academia and industry attended this year’s ISSCC, which was held in San Francisco, United States. The UM team presented four state-of-the-art chips at the conference. Yan Zushu received the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Predoctoral Achievement Award, making UM one of the first two universities from mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao to receive this award since its founding in 1983 (the other university being the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology). The other seven recipients of this award come from the University of California, Berkeley; the University of California, Los Angeles; the California Institute of Technology; the KU Leuven; the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST); and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

The other two students, Lin Fujian and Lin Zhicheng, after presenting their works which were considered to be of exceptional quality, were interviewed during the conference by a number of the world’s leading IC companies including MediaTek and Qualcomm, with Qualcomm inviting them to visit its headquarters in San Diego, United States, with full financial support, to present their papers and to each receive an intensive five-hour job interview.

The award and the international recognition are testament to the high quality of the research results achieved by UM’s students in the highly competitive field of electronics.
