Turning phone into charger UM receives Takuo Sugano Award for Outstanding Far-East Paper at ISSCC
of Macau (UM) State Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI (AMS-VLSI) has
achieved another breakthrough. The team has designed an innovative
microelectronics chip, which can turn a wireless power receiver into a
wireless power transmitter without additional hardware support. The paper received the 2017 Takuo Sugano Award for Outstanding
Far-East Paper at the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 65th International
Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).
Reconfigurable Bidirectional Wireless Power Transceiver with Maximum Current
Charging Mode and 58.6% Battery-to-Battery Efficiency’, the paper was praised unanimously
by experts and scholars at the conference. It is expected that the research results
can be applied in consumer electronics and industrial fields.
The team, consisted of Post-Doctoral Fellow Huang Mo, Assistant Professor Lu
Yan, Visiting Professor U Seng Pan, and Chair Professor Rui Martins, are in the
process of applying for a patent in the Unites States for the invention.
The ISSCC is the foremost
global forum for showcasing the latest developments in solid-state circuits and
systems-on-a-chip. The conference offers a unique opportunity for engineers
working at the cutting edge of IC design and application to maintain technical
currency and to network with leading experts. About 200 papers out of 600 submissions from
around the world have been selected for ISSCC 2017, an acceptance rate of about
33 percent. 40 percent of the accepted papers are from the Far East. Takuo
Sugano entered the University of Tokyo in 1950 to study
for a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. Inspired by the invention of
the transistor, he decided to dedicate his career to studying semiconductors.
From 1967 to 1989, he served in the ISSCC as an early member of what later
became the Far-East Program Committee. The award in his honour is based on
ratings by the conference attendees.
