Chandrakasan honored for semiconductor work

Anantha Chandrakasan, director of MIT's Microsystems Technology Laboratories, today received the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) University Researcher Award.

Chandrakasan, the Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor of Electrical Engineering, was honored for his work in micro-power design, wireless micro-sensor arrays and ultra-wideband radios.

Chandrakasan recently completed a joint project with Texas Instruments to design a micro-controller that uses only one-tenth the power compared to a conventional device. His group has also recently demonstrated ultra-low-power video architectures, energy-efficient ultra-wideband wireless circuits, energy scavenging systems and a sensor system using carbon nanotubes.
