Prof. Kinget Wins Collaborative NSF Award

May 10, 2010

Prof. Peter Kinget and Prof. Ranjit Gharpurey (University of Texas, Austin) have been awarded a $540,000 collaborative research grant from the National Science Foundation entitled "Iterative Downconversion for Broadband Signal Digitization". The research aims to develop broadband analog-to-digital converters using novel iterative filter bank architectures to overcome the limitations of traditional time-domain samplers. Innovations in signal digitization capabilities address a critical need for technology advances in multiple areas with broad
societal and scientific impact including computing, communications, sensors, medicine, and fundamental science. More details are at the Kinget Group website.
