CMC Microsystems profiles Sudip Shekhar
As a dedicated chip designer, Dr. Sudip Shekhar had settled into one of this sector’s most appealing locales. He was a Senior Research Scientist at Intel Labs, Intel’s research division in Hillsboro, Oregon, among the few places in the industry where a manufacturer still conducts basic design research. He felt privileged to have the resources […] by rosales – Date: June 20, 2016 @5:49 pm

Getting over, or perhaps straight through, the T-ray wall
  Killam Scholarship Supports Research in Experimental Chip Design  Between microwave and infrared wavelengths is a tantalizing portion of the spectrum known as terahertz (THz), T-rays or submillimetre wavelengths. Ranging between 300 gigahertz to 3 terahertz this part of the spectrum is compelling for researchers because it has an array of potentially useful properties that […] by UBC ece – Date: November 27, 2015 @4:11 pm
