NTU Team Wins Gold in Macronix Golden Silicon Awards
The team formed by NTU students Hsien-Che Chen (陳先哲) and Shun-Chi Chang (張舜棋) won the top prize in the 17th Macronix Golden Silicon Awards: The Semiconductor Design and Application Competition organized by the Macronix Education Foundation. As the most influential semiconductor competition for university and college students in Taiwan, the Macronix Gold Silicon Awards aims to facilitate creativity and R&D capacity in the fields of electrical engineering and electronics in higher education.
Hsien-Che Chen and Shun-Chi Chang were awarded the top prize for solving the problem of data degradation arising from high-speed transmission through low-speed, multi-phase, and asynchronous sampling. Besides Chen and Chang, another three NTU teams claimed the third prize in the design category among the 253 teams and 800 participants from 41 universities and colleges.
At the prize-awarding ceremony held on July 16, the President of Macronix Education Foundation Miin Wu (吳敏求) stressed that the introduction of the Best Creative Award this year was intended to encourage the participating teams to make breakthroughs and propose innovative works. As Wu noted, creativity and innovation are essential to the development of competitiveness not only in the competition but also for students’ future careers.
