Prabir Saha, a Ph.D. student in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia Tech, earned the Best Student Paper Award at the
2011 IEEE Bipolar/BiCMOS Circuits and Technology Meeting (BCTM). Mr. Saha is advised by ECE Professor John D. Cressler.
The IEEE BCTM, held at Georgia Tech on Sunday-Tuesday, October 9-11, celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, and is the premier international forum for the presentation of advances in bipolar technology, devices, and circuits. Mr. Saha's paper, entitled "An Adaptive, Wideband SiGe Image Reject Mixer for a Self-Healing Receiver," exploited novel circuit design tricks to enable the SiGe mixer (and ultimately the entire microwave receiver chain) to autonomously correct for undesirable process-induced or environmentally-induced changes to RF performance, thereby significantly improving IC yield and robustness.
