Michele D'Urbino won the Student Design Contest at the Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference
He won the contest with the paper ‘An Element-Matched Band-Pass Delta-Sigma ADC for Ultrasound Imaging’. Michele worked in Michiel Pertijs' group at the Electronic Instrumentation Lab and obtained his MSc Degree earlier this year. He developed an analog-to-digital converter capable of digitizing the signals received by every individual element of a 2D ultrasound transducer array. This is an important step towards the realization of next-generation ultrasound probes with full in-probe digitization of the received echo signals.
