Diogo Ribeiro, a PhD student working at IT in Aveiro, was awarded the first prize - the "2015 ARFTG Roger Pollard Memorial Student Fellowship in Microwave Measurement” - with his work “Traceable instrumentation for direct measurements of mixed-signal systems”, supervised by Nuno Borges de Carvalho.
The fellowship is intended to provide financial assistance to a deserving graduate student who shows promise and interest in pursuing research related to the improvement of RF and microwave measurement techniques. Focusing on the characterization and measurement of high-speed Analog-to-Digital converters for radio applications, the work uses new measurement techniques to try to characterize better a device that is scarcely studied and understood so far in the RF area: high-speed Analog-to-Digital converters, which are most likely to be key components in future radios.
IT-Porto in collaboration with the research unit Cister, submitted a proposal to host in Porto, in December of 2017, the 38th edition of the IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium, the flagship conference of the real-time systems community. The proposal was presented publicly by Luis Almeida (IT) and Eduardo Tovar (Cister), during the open meeting of the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems that took place during RTSS 2015, in the 3rd of December in San Antonio, Texas, USA.
In the same ceremony there were two other proposals, namely from Paris and Munich.
