Qiwei Chen has been selected to receive the 2023 Outstanding Student Designer Award by Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI). Chen is pursuing his master’s degree in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), where he is advised by Motorola Solutions Foundation Professor Gabriel Rincón-Mora.
Since 1997, the prestigious ADI Outstanding Student Designer Award has recognized excellence in system-level integrated circuit architectures or in analog, mixed-signal, or digital integrated circuit design. The award is presented annually at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the flagship conference of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Solid-State Circuits Society, which was held this year in San Francisco from February 19-23.
Chen is a member of the Georgia Tech Analog, Power, and Energy Integrated Circuits research team. His current research focuses on high voltage conversion switched-inductor power supplies and the theorization of their maximum achievable conversion ratio.
In the summer of 2022 Chen interned at ADI, an American multinational semiconductor company headquartered in Wilmington, Mass., working on the topological design and evaluation of a linear-boost hybrid converter. He will join ADI full-time as an analog design engineer after graduating from Tech this spring.
