Welcome to the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems (CAES) group of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Twente in the Netherlands.
Our mission is to perform research and education on energy-efficient and dependable embedded systems.
The Else Kooi Prize is given to young researchers for applied semiconductor research in the Netherlands.
The 2013 Award of Euro 5.000,- will be given to Mark Oude Alink at ICT.OPEN 2013 for his PhD research work at the University of Twente on “RF Spectrum Sensing in CMOS Exploiting Crosscorrelation”.
Thanks to the techniques of Mark, spectrum analyzers- which normally are very expensive and bulky professional machines- can be integrated on a microchip. This way, new low-cost applications can be explored, such as finding free spectrum for wireless communications, or self-diagnosis of Integrated Circuits.
On Friday May the 24th the PhD defence for Mark Oude Alink resulted in the awarding of a cum laude PhD degree for his thesis named "RF Spectrum Sensing in CMOS Exploiting Crosscorrelation".
He received his Master's degrees in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering with honors from the University of Twente in 2008. He conducted his PhD research at the Integrated Circuit Design and the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems groups of the CTIT Research Institute at the same university.
His research interests include spectrum sensing, modulation and analog and digital circuit-level and system-level design for software-defined and cognitive radios.
Al decennia terug waren de ramp met de Titanic en de wereldoorlogen belangrijke drijfveren achter de ontwikkeling van onderwater detectie- en communicatiesystemen. Maar betekent dit dat vandaag de dag alle problemen op het gebied van draadloze onderwater communicatie zijn opgelost? Integendeel, veel zaken worden nu volop onderzocht.
