MCAST lecturer Ing. Jeremy Scerri, who is following his Ph.D. studies at the University of Malta, received the Gold Leaf award for a paper he presented at the 14th conference on Ph.D. Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (Prime 2018).

The conference was held in the first week of this month in Prague. The paper he presented is entitled Exploiting nonlinearities to improve the linear region in an electrostatic MEMS demodulator. The Gold Leaf ward is given to the top 10% papers, based on the reviewers' and the awards-committee's evaluation. 


The top ranked papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a Special Issue of Integration, The VLSI Journal (Elsevier).

The research topic studies digital communications with a special focus on a module present in all electronic communication devices like modems, mobile phones, GSM modules, Bluetooth devices and wifi routers. The paper discusses an alternative approach to what is currently found in these devices and looks at how to optimise the performance of this alternative solution.
