UCLA EE Team Awarded the 2012 IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits Best Paper Award
UCLA alumni Dr. David Murphy (Ph.D. ’12), Dr. Amr Hafez (Ph.D. ‘12),
Dr. Ahmad Mirzaei (Ph.D. ’06), Dr. Mohyee Mikhemar (Ph.D. ‘09), Dr.
Hooman Darabi (Ph.D. ’99), and UCLA Electrical Engineering
Department faculty, Professor Frank Chang and Professor Asad Abidi,
have been awarded the 2012 IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits Best
Paper Award for their collaborative research paper titled "A
blocker-tolerant, noise-cancelling receiver suitable for wideband wireless applications.”
The JSSC Best Paper Award is the highest honor given to the most impactful technical research paper in the field of integrated circuits, published in any IEEE journal or conference proceedings during the calendar year. The paper expands on the work "A blocker-tolerant wideband noise-cancelling receiver with a 2dB noise figure" published in the 2012 IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference Digest of Technical Papers, which was awarded the Jack Kilby Award for Outstanding Student Paper and named the ISSCC Distinguished Technical Paper in 2012.
