Dr. Priyamvada Jadaun and associates at the Microelectronics Research Center and the Texas Advanced Computing Center at The University of Texas at Austin have been researching SHE, the Spin Hall Effect
The IEEE PELS R. David Middlebrook Achievement Award was established in 2011 to "honor an individual who is judged to have accomplished outstanding contribution in the technical field of power electronics, within one or more subfields such as modeling & control, design-oriented analysis, development, simulation and application of electronic devices, passive components, analog sensing, and power circuits for inverters, converters and motor drives in all power levels."
Prof. David Z. Pan and his research group won the Best Paper award from the ACM International Symposium on Physical Design (ISPD) 2020 for their paper “TEMPO: Fast Mask Topography Effect Modeling with Deep Learning.” Authors on the paper were Wei Ye, Mohamed Baker Alawieh, Yuki Watanabe, Shigeki Nojima, Yibo Lin, and David Z. Pan.
Prof. Jean Anne Incorvia of Texas ECE along with Prof. Supriyo Bandyopadhyay of Virginia Commonwealth University have received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant to study and demonstrate a system that will greatly reduce the hardware burden associated with generating correlations between two or more p-bit streams.
“With a second wave of the coronavirus likely to appear right as we get into flu season, there’s an urgent need for diagnostics that can differentiate between COVID-19 and influenza,” said Deji Akinwande, a professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The team’s findings were published in May in Nature Photonics. The team includes UT’s Seth R. Bank, a professor in the Cockrell School’s Department of Electrical and Computing Engineering, UT electrical and computer engineering Ph.D. student Stephen March, and, from UVA, Campbell and postdoc Andrew Jones.
