Prof Ben U Seng Pan, deputy director of the University of Macau’s (UM) State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI (AMS-VLSI Lab) and professor of the Faculty of Science and Technology (FST), and Elvis Mak Pui-In, associate director (research) and coordinator of the Wireless Research Line of the AMS-VLSI Lab and associate professor of the FST, delivered seminar talks at two top engineering universities in the United States.
Prof U gave a talk, titled ‘Energy Efficient SAR-Type ADC Design - Trends and Techniques’, at the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), which is famously known as ‘the birthplace of the internet’. Prof U discussed the high-speed data converter trends and design techniques for evolving broadband wireless communication that increasingly drives the fast development of high-performance portable smart and green consumer electronic products. Prof U was invited to give the lecture by Prof Mau-Chung Frank Chang (張懋中), who also chaired the talk. Prof Chang is Wintek Endowed Chair, a distinguished professor, and chairman of the Electrical Engineering Department of UCLA, and was elected president of the National Chiao Tung University in 2015.
Prof Mak gave a talk, titled ‘Gain-Boosted N-Path Filtering Techniques for IoT and Cellular Applications’, at the Berkeley Wireless Research Centre, which is dedicated to exploring the leading edge of knowledge in future generations of technology for wireless communications systems. In his talk, Prof Mak analysed the low-cost solutions for wireless industry.
Prof U was named Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society for the 2014-2015 period. Prof Mak was named Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society for the 2014-2015 period. They were both the first from Macao to be conferred the title of ‘Distinguished Lecturer’ from the respective societies.
