ECE Ph.D. candidate Tzuhan Wang

Tzuhan Wang has been named a recipient of the 2022-2023 IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) Predoctoral Achievement Award. Wang is a Ph.D. candidate in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) where he is advised by ECE Assistant Professor Shaolan Li.

The Predoctoral Achievement Award is the highest honor IEEE SSCS bestows upon student members. It is awarded to promising graduate students annually based on academic record, quality of publications, and a graduate study program well matched to the charter of SSCS.

Wang is being recognized for his Ph.D. research on “Extremely efficient analog to digital converter (ADC).” The work proposes a robust noise-shaping SAR ADC that boosts the noise suppression for resolution improvement without power and design complexity overhead. The research was presented at the 2022 International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) as a demo with a low-power, highly efficient ECG readout application.

As a member of the Georgia Tech Analog Mixed-signal Microsystems and Applications (GAMMA) Lab directed by Li, Wang conducts impactful research on innovative design techniques to address the fundamental challenges in analog integrated circuit design. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in engineering science from National Taiwan University, located in Taipei, Taiwan. He received his second M.S. degree in electrical engineering from Georgia Tech.

His current research interests include digitally assisted noise shaping techniques and mixed-signal circuit design, focusing on addressing various challenges and issues associated with high-speed ADC design. Wang is a reviewer for IEEE Journal on Solid-State Circuits (JSSC), IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, and IET Electronics Letters. He is also a Student Member of the IEEE Society and a recipient of the IEEE SSCS Student Travel Grant Award (2021-2022).
