ESL alumnus Matthew LaRue's paper was selected as the 2017 Best Overall Paper at the IEEE Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuit Symposium (CSICS)
Matthew LaRue received this honor after presenting his paper, “A Fully-Integrated S/C Band Transmitter in 45nm CMOS/ 0.2μm GaN Heterogeneous Technology” at 2017 CSICS. The award will be formally presented to LaRue at the 2018 IEEE BiCMOS and Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuits and Technology Symposium (BCICTS) on October 15 in San Diego, CA.
This is the second CSICS award won by an ESL student; ESL alumnus Brandon Mathieu received the 2017 Best Student Paper Award. Both LaRue and Mathieu were advised by Associate Professor Waleed Khalil.
In 2018, CSICS merged with the IEEE Bipolar and BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting (BCTM) to form the IEEE BiCMOS and Compound Semiconductor Integrated Circuits and Technology Symposium (BCICTS). Both BCTM and CSICS bring a long history as international gatherings where distinguished experts present their latest results in bipolar, SiGe BiCMOS, and compound semiconductor circuits, devices, and technology.
After 39 years of CSICS and 32 years of BCTM, this new combined symposium will be held on October 14-17 in San Diego, California.
