RCMSI Wins RFIT 2011 Best Student Paper Award

  • [2011-12-03]

    Micronanoelectronic System Integration (RCMSI) Research Center received the Best Student Paper Award in IEEE Radio-Frequency Integration Technology Symposium (RFIT) 2011 on Dec 1, with the paper entitled "Low Phase Noise and Linear Gain VCO Using Self-Switched Biasing". The co-authors are CHEN Nan, HUANG Lu, WANG Chenluan, YAN Yuepeng, and LIN Fujinag. 



    The Symposium, which was cosponsored by IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society and IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society, was held from Nov. 30th to Dec. 2nd, in Beijing. Prof. WANG Zhihua from Tsinghua University was General Chair of Organizing Committee, while Prof. James C. M. Hwang from Lehigh University and Prof. Howard Luong from Hong Kong University of Science & Technology acted as Chair of Technical Program Committee. 


    CHEN Nan, the first author of the paper, is now a second year doctoral graduate student at the Dept. of Electronics Science and Technology. In collaboration with Prof. LIN Fujiang, Prof. HUANG Lu, and Dr. YAN Yuepeng, he proposed a low-power, low-phase noise voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) for 2.4GHz wireless communication, which may realize the automatic control of Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor (MOSFET) according to the physical mechanism of flicker noise. The proposal also solved the problem of being nonlinear in traditional structures since it takes the advantage of Varactor to achieve linear gain by using distributed bias capacitor technology. 

     RCMSI was co-founded by Institute of Microelectronics of CAS (IMECAS) and USTC in September, 2010. The award is a result of implementing the policy of "combining the institutes of CAS with the departments of USTC" by IMECAS and USTC.
